DisplayLink knows a thing or tow about USB graphics technology and they’ll be demonstrating their latest technology at CES, able to send 5K resolution over a single USB cable. They’ll be doing this with the commercially available Dell UltraSharp 5K monitor that will be connected by a standard USB cable to a Microsoft Surface Pro III. The result is a new way to future proof devices that otherwise lack the capability to provide a 5120×2880 resolution.
“DisplayLink is proud to demonstrate the scalability of its solutions with the highest commercially available monitor again at CES,” said John Cummins, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing. “5K monitors with 5120×2880 resolutions were just released in Q4. DisplayLink is demonstrating dramatically simplified 5K connectivity to any PC, Notebook, or tablet using a single, completely standard, USB 3.0 cable, in comparison to dual DisplayPort cables currently required.”
