FIRST VESA DISPLAYPORT 2.0 VIDEO SOURCE AND SINK DEVICES COMPLETE DISPLAYPORT UHBR (ULTRA-HIGH BIT RATE) CERTIFICATION
Qualified VESA DisplayPort authorized test centers ready for UHBR certification of the final product
BEAVERTON, Oregon – May 9, 2022 – The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) announced today that the first video source and display devices to support DisplayPort UHBR (Ultra-high Bit Rate) — the higher data link speeds supported by the DisplayPort standard version 2.0 — have been certified through the DisplayPort UHBR Certification Program† To achieve this important milestone, AMD, MediaTek and Realtek’s UHBR chipset reference source and display designs successfully passed the PHY, link, and interoperability testing requirements outlined in the DisplayPort 2.0 Compliance Test Specification (CTS). The higher bandwidths enabled by UHBR support a variety of use cases, such as uncompressed 8K 60Hz HDR, 4K 240Hz HDR, two 4K 120Hz HDR, or four 4K 60Hz HDR displays over a single cable.
VESA also announced today that qualified VESA DisplayPort Authorized Test Centers (ATCs) are ready to begin testing and certifying UHBR finished products using approved test equipment and reference sink and source devices for interoperability testing.
A technical demonstration of a reference source and coil device configuration from AMD and MediaTek operating at UHBR connection speeds will be shown at the Display Week Symposium and Exhibition in San Jose, Calif., May 10-12, 2022 at VESA Booth #214 at the San Jose Convention Center.
“These latest developments in the DisplayPort UHBR certification program are significant steps forward in the rollout of the DisplayPort UHBR ecosystem for new video, display and cable products that support higher resolutions and refresh rates. Certification of UHBR reference devices must undergo rigorous testing to ensure they meet the requirements set forth in the DisplayPort 2.0 CTS. We are pleased to announce that a set of reference silicon has been verified to meet the requirements of the DisplayPort 2.0 specification through our certification program. VESA now has the testing infrastructure to evaluate and certify OEM end products, and we are ready to partner with the ecosystem to bring the next generation of DisplayPort chipsets and IP to market.”
— stated James Choate, compliance program manager for VESA.
“We are very proud to be the first DisplayPort user to achieve DisplayPort UHBR certification for a coil device. With the features DisplayPort 2.0 brings to the table, we are able to develop advanced, robust technologies that system manufacturers can use to revolutionize the highest quality visual experience for consumers. VESA requires very rigorous testing before certification can be granted, making MediaTek’s performance even more impressive. We are honored to play a pivotal role in VESA’s efforts to ensure interoperability and bring industry-leading products to market.”
— said Vince Hu, corporate vice president and general manager, Compute Business Unit, MediaTek Inc.
“We are excited to continue our deep collaboration with VESA in developing the DisplayPort 2.0 UHBR ecosystem by leveraging the AMD Ryzen™ 6000 Series processor as a certified reference source device. The DisplayPort UHBR certification program ensures that resources, cables, and displays work together seamlessly, building a robust ecosystem that delivers the full potential of DisplayPort 2.0 UHBR technology. UHBR speeds defined by the DisplayPort standard represent a new paradigm for display connectivity, with unprecedented bandwidth for smooth gaming, efficient video playback and professional displays at over 8K resolution.”
— said Syed Athar Hussain, vice chairman of the VESA board and AMD CVP and senior fellow of the display domain
We are proud to announce that our first DisplayPort 2.0 Rx solution and DisplayPort 2.0 Tx solution have passed VESA’s UHBR certification program conducted by Granite River Labs. This will help customers quickly achieve finished product certification as part of the VESA interoperability compliance testing program. With the new Realtek DisplayPort 2.0 Rx/Tx solutions, an end user can enjoy a more responsive display with better resolution on multiple display applications. This represents a significant leap forward that could satisfy both the commercial and consumer markets as high quality monitors and docking stations continue to evolve.”
— Yee-Wei Huang, spokesperson and vice president of Multimedia Business Group at Realtek, stated: “
Product developers who take advantage of the DisplayPort UHBR certification program will have the opportunity to use the VESA Certified DisplayPort logo on their products and become reference devices for testing the interoperability of end products. Video source and display devices from AMD, MediaTek and Realtek are already certified, while more source and display devices from VESA member companies are being certified. In addition, several UHBR compatible cable products have also completed certification and are commercially available.
