DisplayLink enables 4K Displays over USB and WiGig Connections

PALO ALTO, Calif.. – September 10, 2013 – DisplayLink®, the leading provider of USB Graphics technology, today demonstrated support for 4K UltraHD displays over both USB and WiGig connections at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF 13) at the Moscone Center, San Francisco. 

DisplayLink’s 4K demo comes as 4K monitors and televisions are rapidly becoming available from industry leaders such as Samsung, LG, and ASUS.  Using DisplayLink based USB adaptors, users can easily add 4K monitors to PC or Macs that don’t have native 4K outputs.  Further, multiple 4K monitors can be supported.  This vastly increases the available attachable market for 4K monitors.

“Many thought 4K over USB wouldn’t be achievable” said John Cummins, VP Sales and Marketing at DisplayLink, “So we pushed the bar further, enabling Ultra HD 4K for both wired and wireless connections. DisplayLink’s latest chipset enables users to easily add 4K displays with a single USB adapter or via new wireless technologies such as WiGig (80.211ad). The resolution increase is staggering when used in a business setting for data graphing, spreadsheets, and finance.  Upcoming 4K chips will be completely backward compatible with the DisplayLink installed base, enabling business users to easily expand their notebook, tablet, or existing DisplayLink enabled solution to 4K Ultra HD.”

DisplayLink will be demonstrating their latest 4K technology at IDF showing both Ultra HD 4K USB adapters and Ultra HD 4K over 802.11ad (WiGig) working in combination with Qualcomm/Atheros/Wilocity, utilizing their latest tri-band chipsets.

To see the 4K demos please visit DisplayLink at the IDF Technology Showcase, Booth 377 on September 10, 11, and 12.  Availability of samples and production will be announced at a later date.  For more information on DisplayLink and its products please visit www.displaylink.com or contact your DisplayLink rep.
