How Does It Work?
The secret to DisplayLink's popularity is a codec that offers crisp text and graphics with very low (sub-frame) latency. This is crucial in desktop productivity uses where natural interaction with a mouse or touchscreen is required. Because the codec is link-aware it naturally fits a range of different data transports such as USB2, USB3, or Wifi. DisplayLink powers graphics in both 802.11ac and 802.11ad wireless docking.
Because DisplayLink uses a driver-based host solution it is simple to support Display link across a range of OSes with no added host cost. Currently we support:
- Windows 7, 8, and 10
- Mac OS X
- Chrome OS
