Thanks much for raising the question and suggestion. We are continuously investigating how to achieve superior solutions on system level. In terms of power consumption the chipset (serializer and deserializer pair) will consume less than 500mW, which should be around half the power of packet-based solutions when looking at the complete video and control data transport function.
