Mobile World Congress (MWC) March 2-5, 2015

At MWC in Barcelona, VESA will feature DisplayPort Alt Mode on USB Type-C, Display Stream Compression, future 5K display support with DP 1.3 and DisplayPort Multi-Stream. Demonstrations will include:

  • USB Type-C – DisplayPort will be supported by the new USB Type-C system connection using “DisplayPort Alt Mode” jointly developed by VESA and USB. This prototype demonstrates the capability to simultaneously transport DisplayPort data, SuperSpeed USB, and system power over a standard USB Type-C cable (provided by Foxconn). The DisplayPort Alt Mode brings the full performance and capability of DisplayPort to the USB Type-C connection. Click here for diagram.
  • DisplayPort Over USB Type-C – DisplayPort will be supported by the new USB Type-C system connection using “DisplayPort Alt Mode” jointly developed by VESA and USB. This prototype demonstrates the capability to support a standard DisplayPort monitor using USB Type-C to DisplayPort adapter cable. The DisplayPort Alt Mode brings the full performance and capability of DisplayPort to the USB Type-C connection.
  • 5K Display – The new DisplayPort 1.3 standard will enable connection to a 5K at 60Hz display through a single cable, without the use of compression. This 5K monitor, available today, uses two DisplayPort 1.2 connections.
  • Multi-Stream – The DisplayPort Multi-Stream feature enables the connection of multiple displays to a single port. Multi-Stream can also be used within the system to expand the number of display outputs ports.
  • Display Stream Compression – VESA DSC (Display Stream Compression) Video Codec. Visually lossless compression up to 3:1. Decreases video transport bandwidth requirement. Well suited for embedded display applications in portable systems:
    • Developed in collaboration with the MIPI Alliance
    • Saves power, increases battery life
    • Reduces system cost and system form factor
    Enables future display enhancements over existing video interfaces:
    • 8K screen resolution
    • High Refresh Rate
    • High Dynamic Range

CES 2015

At CES 2015 in Las Vegas, VESA featured multiple demonstrations that illustrate the power and flexibility of DisplayPort and related standards. These included:

  • USB Type-C – DisplayPort will be supported by the new USB Type-C system connection using “DisplayPort Alt Mode” jointly developed by VESA and USB. This prototype by Texas Instruments demonstrates the capability to simultaneously transport DisplayPort data, SuperSpeed USB, and system power over a standard USB Type-C cable (provided by Foxconn). The DisplayPort Alt Mode brings the full performance and capability of DisplayPort to the USB Type-C connection. Click here for diagram.
  • DisplayPort Over USB Type-C – DisplayPort will be supported by the new USB Type-C system connection using “DisplayPort Alt Mode” jointly developed by VESA and USB. This prototype by Texas Instruments demonstrates the capability to support a standard DisplayPort monitor using USB Type-C to DisplayPort adapter cable (provided by Accell). The DisplayPort Alt Mode brings the full performance and capability of DisplayPort to the USB Type-C connection.
  • Large-screen Gaming – The unsurpassed visual experience offered by DisplayPort will be on display using a 98 inch Panasonic 4K display running at 60Hz with full 24 bit 4:4:4 video for uncompromised image quality – no chroma subsampling.
  • AdaptiveSync – DisplayPort’s new AdaptiveSync feature enhances gaming action through the process of active frame rate control. This is a demo of AMD’s FreeSync capability that is based on the AdaptiveSync protocol. AdaptiveSync also reduces system power and extends battery life.
  • 5K Display – The new DisplayPort 1.3 standard will enable connection to a 5K at 60Hz display through a single cable, without the use of compression. This Dell 5K monitor, available today, uses two DisplayPort 1.2 connections.
  • Display Stream Compression – VESA DSC (Display Stream Compression) Video Codec. Visually lossless compression up to 3:1. Decreases video transport bandwidth requirement. Well suited for embedded display applications in portable systems:
    • Developed in collaboration with the MIPI Alliance
    • Saves power, increases battery life
    • Reduces system cost and system form factor
    Enables future display enhancements over existing video interfaces:
    • 8K screen resolution
    • High Refresh Rate
    • High Dynamic Range
  • DP-to-HDMI 2.0 Legacy Adapter – DisplayPort is designed to provide backward compatibility for existing display types. This video adapter converts DisplayPort 1.2
    to HDMI 2.0, driving a 4K@60Hz monitor with full 24 bit video.
  • Multi-Stream – The DisplayPort Multi-Stream feature enables the connection of multiple displays to a single port. Multi-Stream can also be used within the system to expand the number of display outputs ports.
