DisplayLink launches industry leading DL-5700 USB 3.0 UHD 4K Chipset with Audio and Integrated Ethernet at Interop 2014 

PALO ALTO, Calif., – April 1st, 2014 – DisplayLink®, the leading provider of USB Graphics technology, today announced the official launch of its industry leading DL-5700 USB 3.0 chipset with support for 4K resolution, integrated audio, and Gigabit Ethernet. The DL-5700 follows the announcement of the World’s First USB 4K chipset DL-5500 at CES earlier this year and enables 4K docking station products that support  the latest Ultra High Definition Monitors. 

The new DL-5700 further expands DisplayLink’s award winning technology allowing IT professionals to future-proof their docking deployments in preparation for broader 4K roll-outs. 

“After the award-winning DL-5500 for adapters was introduced at CES just two months ago, we were keen to follow up with a 4K docking chip with full 3840x2160 support, audio, and Gigabit Ethernet over a single USB connection.” said John Cummins, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing. “DisplayLink’s DL-5000 family uniquely enables notebooks and tablets that don’t natively support Ultra High Definition to connect to 4K monitors, providing a cost effective way for IT professionals to deploy higher resolution monitors without needing to replace their whole notebook portfolio.” 

DisplayLink’s sophisticated algorithms preserve a no-compromise user experience by dynamically adjusting compression based on multiple factors including bandwidth, throughput, and link status, making it the ideal solution for universal docking stations. With the universality of USB on all compute devices and platforms, enterprise IT professionals can easily deploy flexible docking strategies.

The DisplayLink DL-5700 launch is accompanied by DisplayLink’s proven software drivers with updates available from DisplayLink website. The DL-5700 is in production today and OEM products will be available soon.
