Getting Signals to the Screen Faster

Posted January 24, 2015 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

As screens get bigger, more bendy, and increase in resolution, one challenge remains. How do you get the signal to the screen in the most efficient way? At least one industry expert believes "less is more" when it comes to cable, recommending DisplayPort 1.3 to simultaneously transmit video, audio, and metadata. DP 1.3 provides faster transmission speeds than HDMI and even offers support for 4K imaging technology. The writer also touts the benefits of a Type-C connector, a new cable jointly announced by the USB 3.0 Promoter Group and the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA).

Although not mentioned in the article, I think this can also be used to connect a desktop PC to its monitor using only one cable for video, audio, serial for touchscreen and power. And all that without the need for a dedicated video connector - just one of the (future) standard USB type C connectors of the PC.
