What is DisplayPort?

Video Displayport HDMI

Is DisplayPort the first display communication port? Relying on huge data and transferring technology, we can find DisplayPort in Ethernet, USB, and PCI Express. What can DisplayPort be used for? It can be used for both internal display connections and for external display connections.

Unlike past standards, the DisplayPort protocol is based on small data packets called Microreports. The Microreports can embed timer signals in the data stream. Fewer pins can achieve higher resolution. Data packet applications also allow DisplayPort scalability. It means that over time, the physical communication port does not require significant changes to add additional functionality. 


Once you are going to transmit audio and video at the same time, you can use DisplayPort, each of them can be transferred independently. Each color channel in the video signal path has 6 to 16 bits, and the audio path has 8 channels.

The bidirectional, half-duplex auxiliary channel carries the main chain connection equipment management and device control data such as VESA EDID, MCCS, and DPMS standards.

DisplayPort signal is not compatible with DVI or HDMI. In contrast, dual mode displayports are designed to transmit protocols for single-link dvi or hdmi 1.2/1.4 via this communication port. Selecting the desired signal, and converting electrical signals from lvds to tmds to achieve it. Double mode display ports with passive connectors do not support VGA and double link DVI. These communication ports require active connectors to convert the required output protocols and signals. A DisplayPort connector can power the VGA connector. But the double-link DVI connector may depend on external power (refer to HDMI, DVI and VGA compatibility)

How does DisplayPort use?

At a basic level, the DisplayPort works like any other audio and video data connection. You just need to plug one end of the cable into your device, and the other end into your display. The device can be a laptop, a desktop, or an external graphics card. Devices can detect each other and configure things automatically. But you may need to manually select DisplayPort input by using a control on a remote or monitor sometimes. It is also possible that you will need to manually set the correct resolution and refresh rate for your display.

At the technical level, DisplayPort uses packet data to transfer. The way is similar to an Ethernet cable, as well as the PCI Express port on the motherboard. It is able to transmit so-called miniature packets where the clock signals are embedded. So it enables more efficient data transmission streams, which in turn can support higher resolution and refresh rates.

This is a big advantage over more traditional display standards and techniques such as VGA, DVI, or even HDMI. The strength and extensible feature of DisplayPort makes it one of the most important display technologies in the past decade. And also DP can be added and iterated over time.

Why use DisplayPort?

1.One-way Transfer

Users should note that the signal is transferred only from DisplayPort to HDMI. The connectors are gold-plated, corrosion-resistant and difficult to crack, which guarantees reliable durability and improve the quality of signal transmission. Users should also notice that the the release button of the DisplayPort connector must be depressed before each unplugging. As for the compatibility, the cable adapter connects a DisplayPort entailed laptop or desktop to an HDTV, monitor, or projector. Furthermore, it is worth emphasizing that HDMI cables need to be equipped with cable adapters.

2. Wire dependence

Initially, as a cable-product, it is drive-by-wire, dependent on the plug-in and plug-off for the cable. Due to the limitations of modern technology, it’s still less likely for the users to resort to the bluetooth transmission products (limited compatibility and relatively unstable transfer). So they need to continue enduring the possible troubles brought by the cable. In effect, the averaged length of DisplayPort to HDMI Male to Female Adapter Cable is 0.15 meters.

The complaints about the length is quite understandable, for its intangible to fit for every occupant’s needs. The complementary relationship between DisplayPort to HDMI male to female adapter cable and HDMI cable is to eliminate this problem. The user who worries at the distance issue could plug in a longer HDMI cable as well, which compensates for the lack of availability of DisplayPort to HDMI Male to Female Adapter Cable.

3. Widely-adapted

Generally, the HDMI cable in the current market is averagely 16 inches long, suitable for almost all kinds of situations. Despite that, some users might still harbor the thoughts whining about the troubles a long cable could induce.

-“Danny Ly” from the Twitter had shared his clever tactics in regard to the management of long cables. He mentioned that a wire storage box could be a perfect trouble-solver in this case.

What he said could help users save considerable space. The storage box is u-shaped, which means that the wires and the cables get neither tangled up nor rolled up. The over-long part of the wire or the cable would be stored in a box and stuck with a bayonet, guaranteeing that it would not fall off. Similarly, a hub could also act to handle the problem. It functions exactly as a magic tap. Users could simply tie the wires and the cables together and attach them to the hub. The hub would be tightly stuck onto wires and cables, saving lots of space. If the users take the previous instructions into consideration, the problem will be easy to solve.

4.Special Design for DisplayPort? Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter Cable
