VESA announced DisplayPort is growing steadily, the organization revealed there are now 78 computer displays with the interface, a rise of 160 percent over the last 12 months.
At present there are 78 display models from leading manufacturers such as Apple, Barco, Dell, Eizo Nanao, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Mitsubishi, NEC, Philips, Samsung and Sony. Fueling the growth is the display industry’s recognition and optimism for the consumer market adoption and market saturation of DisplayPort, which is driving chipset, device and component manufacturers to replace legacy interfaces with DisplayPort.
DisplayPort significantly enhances display performance by doubling of the maximum data transfer rate to 21.6Gb/s (Gigabits-per-second), and increasing display resolution, color depths and refresh rates. In addition, DisplayPort now enables technology manufacturers to integrate numerous advanced features, including: multiple monitor support through a single DisplayPort connector; support for high-speed, bi-directional data transfer; audio enhancements including Audio Copy Protection and support for High-Definition (HD) audio formats such as Dolby, MAT, DTS HD, all Blu-Ray formats, and China’s DRA standard; and improved support for full HD stereoscopic 3D displays.
