Patented for power lines

Media Fusion ( has been awarded a U.S. patent on its power-line communications technology, which will enable households and businesses across the globe to plug into voice, video and Internet data through the electric power grid with near unlimited bandwidth.

Invented by chairman and chief scientist William “Luke” Stewart, the patent encompasses 46 claims for the company`s Advanced Sub-Carrier Modulation process, which will empower the electrical power grid of any nation to deliver communications services to businesses, homes, schools and under-served rural areas. Anyone with a simple electrical outlet will be able to plug into the service.

Media Fusion`s process is available for licensing. The technology claims to solve the problems of line noise, electrical load imbalances and transformer interference that hindered other past efforts. Media Fusion`s process writes phone, radio, video, Internet and satellite data within the magnetic wave by using proprietary software and hardware, allowing the electrical grid to carry these communications services at near light speed. Media Fusion is developing user-friendly, portable outlet connectors that will enable phones, televisions and computers to communicate on the electrical grid as a single, low-cost source of premium-quality voice, video and computer data. The total package for an average household is expected to retail for under $60.

By using the power grid, Media Fusion eliminates the need for expensive public funding outlays to connect schools and under-served areas with fiber-optic cable, co-axle or other types of communications lines. Media Fusion also guarantees security of confidential Internet data and offers electric utilities a way to monitor distribution and maintenance costs, as well as user consumption.
