Introducing New DisplayPort Alternate StandardsMode (Alt Mode) 2.0. Announced by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA), which governs global standards for virtually all electronic products.
New DisplayPort Alt Mode 2 standard.0 implements compatibility with the new USB4 standards and includes the functions of the previous DisplayPort standard (version 2.0) when using USB Type-C. DisplayPort Alt Mode provides the ability to stream DisplayPort video data at speeds up to 80 Gb / s via USB-C. All 4 available high-speed lines are used. You can also transfer data at speeds up to 40 Gbps with parallel delivery of SuperSpeed USB data.
According to the VESA controller devices with a newstandard will appear on the market in the next 2021. The DisplayPort 2.0 standard was first introduced in 2019 and demonstrated a three-fold increase in data transfer rates compared to the previous DisplayPort standard. Also, the new standard contains performance requirements that correspond to the technical characteristics of the latest and promising displays.
DisplayPort 2 standard.0 is capable of broadcasting video in a resolution of more than 8 K, supports high screen refresh rates and allows working with a wider dynamic range of HDR when transmitting high-resolution video. In addition, expanded capabilities when working with multiple displays.
The introduction of new standards will allow the use ofVC headset with support for 4K resolution for virtual reality. Technically, the DisplayPort 2.0 standard will allow data to be transmitted at a maximum speed of 77.37 Gbit / s on four lines (up to 19.34 Gbit / s per line).
Support for 8K resolution is available (7680 × 4320) with60 Hz screen refresh rate with full color 30 bpp 4: 4: 4 HDR without compression, or 16K resolution (15360 × 8460) with a 60 Hz refresh rate and 30 bpp 4: 4: 4 HDR with compression. The advent of the DisplayPort Alt Mode 2.0 standard will allow the transfer of high-resolution video via USB connectors.
