    Re: News - VESA unveils DisplayPort 1.2

    Any idea how you would feed four monitors from one cable? a Simple passive splitter? daisy chaining? an active powered sliptter?

    Re: News - VESA unveils DisplayPort 1.2

    From the press release:
    DisplayPort v1.2 supports "multi-streaming" -- the ability to transport multiple independent uncompressed display and audio streams over a single cable, supporting protected content and high performance applications such as 3D gaming. This enables the use of multiple monitors connected by cable in a daisy chain or hub configuration.
    Interesting!

    I missed the PR link at the bottom. That is interesting, sounds like a pretty good interconnect, although it'll all be rendered pointless if Intel and Apple ahve their way.

    I didn't even know there was a 1.1! I have DP on my laptop, I'll probably never use it.

    Re: News - VESA unveils DisplayPort 1.2

    It's a real shame this isn't / hasn't taken off so far. HDMI is such a poor quality adaptor - unsecure and runs into real problems carrying its signal on anything beyond short (<5m) runs...

    Daisy chaining, à la FireWire.

    Re: News - VESA unveils DisplayPort 1.2

    The whole cable convergence thing seems like it could be really convenient with a laptop. Using one cable for an external monitor (or more), ethernet, and USB would make it like a docking station of sorts.

    I guess we just need to hope computer equipment manufacturers cooperate.

    It would certainly be nice to have less cables. With Intel's Light Peak technology, hopefully this will be a reality within the new few years.
