OWLink Technology is what drives this device, using Digital Light Interface to transmit uncompressed audio, video and other data. According to CEO of Neothings, Bill Paul, the LightSpider will be able to transmit “…HD video, 100MB Ethernet, RS-232, IR, USB, several additional channels of digital audio, and more,” using this technology.
No pricing information is available for the LightSpider, but it should become more economical the greater the distance required. For a 30 foot transmission, other solutions might be cheaper; but for 300 feet, LightSpider may offer a lower cost and with less clutter than the average Cat 5 or HDMI solutions.
