DisplayLink is demonstrating at CES that its technology can drive screens with a resolution of 5K (5120 x 2880 pixels) over a single USB cable:
DisplayLink, the leading provider of USB graphics technology, will demonstrate the very latest commercially available Dell UltraSharp 5K monitors connected over a single, standard universal USB cable providing 5120x2880 resolution. The new solution to future-proof notebook expansion is being showcased at CES from January 6th ~ 9th 2015 at the DisplayLink booth #36258 in South Hall 4.
“DisplayLink is proud to demonstrate the scalability of its solutions with the highest commercially available monitor again at CES,” said John Cummins, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing. “5K monitors with 5120x2880 resolutions were just released in Q4. DisplayLink is demonstrating dramatically simplified 5K connectivity to any PC, Notebook, or tablet using a single, completely standard, USB 3.0 cable, in comparison to dual DisplayPort cables currently required.”
DisplayLink both solves the 5K connectivity problem and equally enables non-5K PC, notebooks, and tablets to connect to 5K displays over a standard universal “Plug-and-Display” USB 3.0 cable connection. DisplayLink uses a standard off-the shelf Microsoft Surface Pro III, connected over a standard USB 3.0 cable to a DisplayLink-based docking station, to Dell’s new 5K UltraSharp UP2715K, 27” Monitor, enabled by DisplayLink’s latest 5K chipset.
