Like HDMI extenders, displayport switches and extenders are also available in market and these are used widely for the extension of video and audio production.
Displayport Extenders and Its Advantages
These are also used in personal computing graphics. The core competitive advantage of this technology is quiet obvious from the current advances in DP technology. It offers the extenders with highest bandwidth for any video and audio repeater regardless of HDMI or DVI extender technology.
These extenders are suspended to receive video and audio signals with much faster rate than other devices. It accepts high resolution signals and transmits it to the other devices in an efficient manner. Displayport offers high definition video without the issue of signal loss. As this technology takes the place of HDMI and DVI extenders, this implies that the PLC cycle of HDMI and DVI extenders are reaching to its end.
Displayport extenders are able to carry more bandwidth than HDMI or DVI extender i.e. 17.28Gbps for its second generation version. Now the DP extender also releases its second generation devices. This means that DP technology is growing with an increasing rate. The Displayport second generation features are as follows:DP1.1 has all the specifications like its previous version.It has great advantage over the legacy of DVI switch support or even HDMI switch.Carries video and audio signals from fiber optic cables.An open license technology that is compatible with all standards like mDP, eDP, DDM, wDP, PDMI and slim port.
Advantages of DisplayPort:
Some advantages of Displayport are as follows:Unify internal and external display interfacesProvide scalable performance in form of color depth, resolution, and refresh rateProvide a future base for new display devicesProvide a user-friendly external connectorEnable an electronic display connection as a feasible option to VGA.Accelerate use of protected electronic outputs on Personal computers and home high definition theater system.
Because of the multiple advantages of Displayport, most of the industry heavyweights including PC vendors- Acer, Apple, Toshiba, Hewlett-Packard, Fujitsu and display (graphics) makers- ATI, NEC, Nvidia, Realtek, Viewsonic, Philips, Asus And Matrox has started using the core technology of DP in order to make their products compatible with latest standards.
