In our previous blog – Unraveling the Topologies of DisplayPort 1.4/1.3, we discussed SST (Single Stream Transport) topology in DisplayPort to transmit single stream from source to sink devices. We also touched upon basics of MST (Multi Stream Transport) topology to transmit multiple streams to single/multiple devices. In this blog we will delve into the different ways in which MST can be leveraged and how MST is used in real scenarios. We will also discuss DisplayPort over USB Type-C, the future of the Display industry.
DisplayPort is a display interface used to connect a video source to any display device such as monitor, projectors etc. DisplayPort enables high resolutions with support for deep color modes, faster refresh rates, and increased bandwidth with a support for all 3D video and audio formats. DisplayPort is widely used in the PC industry with products ranging from graphic cards to laptops. It has also been adopted by mobile industry, with manufacturers like LG and Samsung using DisplayPort as a Video out port. This blog will cover different topologies of DisplayPort.
Every hot selling multimedia device today has enviable specifications, but the first thing the user experiences is the display quality. Displays are coming closer to our natural vision by every passing day, thanks to the increasing resolution, and color depths. UHD displays with 4k resolution are being adopted rapidly, and demand for even higher 8k UHD displays is also growing.
