VESA Announces First DisplayPort Authorized Test Center in Japan

Newark, Calif., June 11, 2013 – The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA®) today announced Allion Japan Inc. has been approved to offer compliance testing for the DisplayPort® standard. With this approval, Allion becomes the first DisplayPort authorized test center (ATC) in Japan, and the tenth DisplayPort ATC world-wide, further expanding compliance testing of the standard globally.

VESA’s DisplayPort standard is the new digital video interface being widely adopted by personal computers, mobile devices, and displays.  It is a high-bandwidth video interface that enables features not available with other electronic connections, delivering true digital imaging and audio through a single cable.  DisplayPort is the only video interface that supports multiple displays and Ultra HD (4K) at 60 frames per second from a single video output.

“Confirming that DisplayPort products are interoperable and perform as promised is essential to enabling this new technology to our member companies and the end user,” said Craig Wiley, chairman of the VESA Board of Directors. “As we continue to see higher DisplayPort adoption rates, compliance testing has become fundamental in satisfying user expectations. Allion is a natural fit for VESA as they have a long, reputable history in the testing and certification of DisplayPort as well as other standards products.”

With the introduction of DisplayPort testing service to its Japan lab’s service portfolio, Allion now has four VESA authorized DisplayPort world-wide test centers.  Allion opened the first authorized DisplayPort test center in Taiwan in 2008.

“Establishing a DisplayPort compliance test facility in Tokyo enables VESA to mandate certified DisplayPort products through testing services and ensure device compatibility throughout the ecosystem,” said Hideaki Nakayama, executive vice president, Allion Japan Inc. “Allion is proud to be a certified test center in Japan for the DisplayPort standard, advancing the availability of compliant DisplayPort products.”
