Industrial Organization Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) standard published DisplayPort 1.3. In comparison with the version of DisplayPort 1.2a capacity increased by 50% to 32.4 Gbit / s (8.1 Gbit / s in each of the four lines) . Given the overhead of the transmission rate of the uncompressed video stream can reach 25.92 Gbit / s.
Increasing the capacity improves resolution monitors. Now, over a single cable DisplayPort can even connect the monitor 5K (5120 x 2880 pixels). Increased resolution and connecting multiple monitors to a single port using technology DisplayPort Multi-Stream. In particular, it is possible to connect two monitors 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) using the synchronization VESA Coordinated Video Timing.
In DisplayPort 1.3 retained the ability to convert video to VGA, DVI or HDMI, there is support for HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0 with CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), which extends the application of DisplayPort in television applications, including working with 4K video is copy protected. The new standard adds support for the 4: 2: 0, is widely used in consumer television interfaces. Furthermore, improved possibilities for transmission of DisplayPort simultaneously with the other video data, for example , USB 3.0.
Members of the VESA standard is available free of charge.
