Our new EarMix 16M (https://www.presonus.com/products/EarMix-16M
) can be powered via PoE as well as other small endpoints.
Surprisingly, in a switch this size, the addition of PoE added very little to the cost. There would have been no real difference in price.
As companies such as Netgear and Cisco continue making more AVB switches we expect to see smaller, more affordable alternatives available on the market. In the meantime, our SW5E should fulfill the majority of use cases for our users.
