DisplayLink To Showcase New USB 2.0 Devices, Preview SuperSpeed USB Technology At 2010 CES
PALO ALTO, Calif., and LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2010 – From simple, affordable universal docking stations to high resolution USB graphics adapters, DisplayLink Corp. this week at 2010 International CES is showcasing the latest devices that use its virtual USB graphics technology – and providing a sneak peek of what’s to come with SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) technology in the future.
DisplayLink’s wired and wireless virtual graphics technology has been gaining momentum in the consumer electronics and corporate IT arenas and is today available in multiple brand-name USB docks, adapters, monitors and projectors. Most recently, DisplayLink announced its USB virtual graphics technology can enable the world’s first 10-seat thin client multi-user computing solution via Microsoft’s Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 software.
Further, as part of its innovations at 2010 CES, DisplayLink will preview its forthcoming SuperSpeed USB solution that will offer no-compromise graphics, video and gaming over USB.
“SuperSpeed USB will provide the ultimate universal display and peripheral connector for PCs,” said Dennis Crespo, executive vice president of marketing and business development for DisplayLink. “Just as we’ve been at the forefront with USB 2.0 graphics technology innovations,DisplayLink will lead in helping make SuperSpeed USB the standard in connectivity for even the most complex computing applications.”
SuperSpeed USB is up to 10x faster than Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0), bringing bandwidths of up to 5 Gbps as compared to 480 Mbps and adding dual-simplex, simultaneous bi-directional data flow. The speed boost will deliver even faster graphics performance and higher resolutions (2560 x 1600), meaning high quality Full HD video and 3D gaming over USB will be possible. DisplayLink-enabled SuperSpeed USB products are expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2010.
Among other advantages SuperSpeed USB will bring to DisplayLink-enabled devices:
- Ultra-high resolution support across multiple monitors
- Plenty of bndwidth for other peripherals, such as hard drives, gigabit Ethernet, MP3 players, and video players, withouth any impact on video performance
- Backward compatible with legacy USB 2.0 platforms
"DisplayLink has been an active participant in the USB-IF and has leveraged the performance and ease of use of USB technology for graphics applications," said Jeff Ravvencraft, president and chairman, USB-IF. "SuperSpeed USB delivers greater bandwidth and new capabilities to the USB ecosystem, allowing companies like DisplayLink to create even more poerful device interaction and media sharing with the same simple connectivity consumers expect from USB."
