DisplayPort is a display connectivity standard that was designed in 2006, produced in 2008, and slowly but steadily gained in popularity. The organization behind it, VESA, has now announced that over the year 2013 a total of 300 new DisplayPort products have been certified. Reportedly, this is a 63 percent increase over previous years.
"DisplayPort is a flexible and robust standard because it is based on an adaptable packet-based architecture," said Craig Wiley, Sr. Director of Marketing for VESA member Parade Technologies, and Chair of the VESA Board of Directors. "Because of its many advantages, DisplayPort was chosen as a core technology for Thunderbolt, and as the internal video connection for almost all new high resolution notebook computer designs."
"Consumers increasingly seek out the DisplayPort logo when purchasing new computers, displays and other products," explained Bill Lempesis, VESA executive director. "DisplayPort's thorough certification process assures the buyer that their new DisplayPort purchase is flawlessly interactive with other DisplayPort products. DisplayPort is constantly evolving, with new features like multiple display streaming over a single cable, and 4K x 2K display resolution at 60 Hz with up to 30-bit per pixel color depth."
The organization also announced that it will have various new DisplayPort certified products on display at CES 2014, from January 6-10.
