VESA Releases DisplayPort 1.3 Standard

  

Newark, CA (15 September 2014) – The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA®) announced the release of the DisplayPort 1.3 audio / video (A/V) standard. An update to the widely used DisplayPort 1.2a standard, this latest version increases the maximum link bandwidth to 32.4 Gbps, with each of four lanes running at a link rate of 8.1 Gbps/lane—a 50% increase from the previous version of the DisplayPort standard. Allowing for transport overhead, DisplayPort’s 32.4 Gbps combined link rate delivers 25.92 Gbps of uncompressed video data.

The increased bandwidth enables higher resolution monitors, including recently announced 5K monitors (with pixel resolutions of 5120 x 2880) using a single DisplayPort cable without the use of compression. It will also enable higher resolutions when driving multiple monitors through a single connection using DisplayPort’s Multi-Stream feature, such as the use of two 4K UHD monitors, each with a pixel resolution of 3840 x 2160, when using VESA Coordinated Video Timing.

DisplayPort 1.3 continues to support video conversion to VGA, DVI and HDMI. DisplayPort 1.3 adds support for HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0 with CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), which enhances DisplayPort’s utility for television applications, including 4K video with copy protection. The new standard adds support for the 4:2:0 pixel structure, a video format commonly used on consumer digital television interfaces, which enables support for future 8K x 4K displays.

DisplayPort 1.3 also enhances DisplayPort’s value for multi-function interfaces that combine data transport, A/V transport and other capabilities on a single cable. It further refines protocols that enable DisplayPort to share a single cable with other data types. With its higher 8.1 Gbps per-lane link rate, DisplayPort 1.3 can support a single UHD monitor with 60Hz refresh and 24-bit color over two lanes, while assigning the remaining two lanes to increase capacity for alternate data types, such as SuperSpeed USB data, as allowed in DockPort™. DisplayPort is the A/V transport standard used by DockPort, Thunderbolt™ and other wired and wireless multi-function interface standards.

 

“While becoming a mainstream video standard, DisplayPort continues to be at the cutting edge of A/V transport,” said VESA Board of Directors Chair Alan Kobayashi, Fellow & Executive R&D Management for DisplayPort Group at MegaChips Technology America. “These new enhancements to DisplayPort will facilitate both higher resolution displays, as well as easier integration of DisplayPort into multi-protocol data transports, which will satisfy consumer’s desire for simplicity and ease-of-use.”

 

The DisplayPort standard is offered to VESA members without any license fee. For more information about DisplayPort, please visit http://www.displayport.org or connect with us on YouTube.

Cool. Now all I need is a 21:9 aspect ratio 51 inch 5040 x 2160 curved 120Hz IPS non-glare monitor to go along with this spec...

I find it kind of amusing that they are talking up 5K when 4K is still in it's infancy. I've got a LG 34UM95 monitor that I wouldn't trade in the world for ANY 4K display - there are just far too many problems getting 4K to work right:

I hate those curved tv's and monitors. I got rid of mine after 3 weeks. At first I didn't like the effect, but I thought 'I'll give it some time and I'll get used to it' After a week, I still hated it, ok, a little more time...2 weeks, nope, still hated it. Let's not be hasty, another week.
After the 3rd week, I was so happy to get to dump it, and get a flat one again!
You either love it or hate it, and I couldn't stand the thing. My neighbor liked it and was happy to receive it as a gift.Quote

The angles... unless you plant yourself at the exact apex of the parabola you get image distortion from center to sides, and if you are at an angle to the screen, it looks horrible, one side is too acute an angle of viewing and the other is too obtuse. (Squished faces near you and stretched ones farther away)Quote

I see, I guess I'll be sticking to flat panels then Quote
