I figured I would throw this up.
We are pretty big users of JustAddPower devices around here. Honestly, we love them, but that doesn’t make them perfect. With no built in grouping (need to do that with VLANs) and with a cost of ~700$/pc they have their downsides.
That is why I am very optimistic about Hall Research’s new HDMI over LAN products.
These units are supposed to retail for <400$/pc for their POE powered versions.
They will have built in grouping (!!!) web management per-endpoint as well as a windows controller to assign source/destination presets network-wide.
In short, this could be a game changer if it does what it says on the tin.
First one to get one in their hands I’d love to know more.
