VESA releases new DisplayPort Dual-Mode 1.1 standard
The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has released it's new DisplayPort <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278463==http://www.vesa.org/featured-articles/vesa-introduces-updated-dual-mode-standard-for-higher-resolution-interoperability-with-hdmi-displays/" rel='nofollow'>standard</a>. DisplayPort Dual-Mode 1.1 will allow computers and monitors to support higher resolutions and new functionality, such as <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278464==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/10/20/industry.expected.to.use.uhd.sony.opts.to.differ/" rel='nofollow'>Ultra HD</a> images through a single cable, as well as a number of refinements that will improve interoperability. <br />
<br />
The new standard will allow for a higher data rate for DisplayPort-to-HDMI cable adapters, rising up to 297MHz from 165MHz, and in turn supports <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278465==http://www.electronista.com/articles/10/02/05/supports.3d.content.in.movies.games.broadcast/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">HDMI 1.4</a> resolutions. As well as allowing a 4K or 2K-resolution image to be transferred using one cable instead of multiple cables, it will also support 3D 1080p imagery at 60Hz.

An updated DisplayPort Dual-Mode Cable Adapter Compliance Test Specification has also been announced, which must be met by display adapter manufacturers if they wish to display the DisplayPort logo on a Dual-Mode-compatible product.

Devices compatible with the new standard are expected to go on sale later this year.
