DisplayPort - a new generation interface

DisplayPort is a new generation AV interface developed by the display industry for a wide range of tablets, notebooks and desktop computers as well as monitors. It is administered by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA).

DisplayPort products currently support up to 4K video, and the release of DisplayPort 1.3 enables higher resolution including 5K monitors (5120x2880), using a single cable. DisplayPort 1.4 features Display Stream Compression 1.2 transport, Forward Error Correction, enhanced display resolution (e.g., 8Kp60Hz HDR deep color) and expanded audio transport capabilities.

Professional projectors may include all
or some of the following inputs:

  • VGA was the standard monitor cable for connecting your computer to a monitor or projector. Available on some models but most now have HDMI.
  • HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) for transferring uncompressed digital data (audio and video). HDMI connects digital audio/video sources such as Blu-ray players.
  • DVI (Digital Video Input) Some projectors have DVI ports into the computer's DVI port. DVI-D carries a digital signal.
  • USB (Universal serial bus) Use a USB memory stick for PC-free presentations.
  • RJ-45 is a network connection that allows the image on the computer to be sent to the projector on the local area network (LAN).
  • OPS-Slot (Open Pluggable Specification) on a projector or monitor allows you insert a slot-in PC, ideal for digital signage presentations.

OPS-Slot keeps a Slot-in PC secure

With a Slot-in PC and digital signage software you can create presentations with your logo, images, clocks, videos, RSS news feeds and other media, which then play direct onto the display screen or through the projector, to promote your business activities. The computer is hidden from sight in the rear of the hardware and eliminates cables to a separate computer.  Nexcom and AOPEN both manufacture standalone media players and Slot-in PCs. Edis ultra mini PC which resembles a memory stick and slots into the USB port of a display screen or projector is ideal for signage applications. Repeat Signage digital signage software works well with these devices pre-installed with Windows O/S.
