DisplayPort is a royalty free all digital audio and video interface standard from VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) that can handle up to 10.8Gbps of audio and video data and is designed to replace the analog 15-pin (VGA) and DVI digital connectors on computers and display devices. DisplayPort cables have a latching mechanism which makes them very valuable for professional applications. DisplayPort will likely also have applications in residential and consumer electronics as well.
There are seven lengths of DisplayPort all digital cables being introduced by Kramer. Each has male connectors on both ends. These cables are designated as C DPM/DPM-X cables in Kramer product line where the “X” is equal to the length of the cable in feet. These cables come in 3’, 6’, 10’, 15’, 25’, 35’ and 50’ lengths.
The 3’, 6’ and 10’ cables are built from high-quality 28 AWG wire and the 15’, 25’ and 50’ cables are built from high-quality 26 AWG wire. Longer distances require a higher gauge wire to ensure that high-resolution signals can pass over these longer distances.
Kramer is also introducing three DisplayPort adapter cables for HDMI, DVI and 15-pin HD computer graphics video signals. Kramer’s adapter cables can be used with any multi-mode DisplayPort device. They have a male DisplayPort connector on one end a female connector for the corresponding HDMI, DVI or 15-pin computer graphics video signals on the other end. These adapter cables are the ADC-DPM/HF for HDMI signals, the ADC-DPM/DF for DVI signals and the ADC-DPM/GF for 15-pin HD computer graphics video signals.
Kramer’s line of C-DPM/DPM-X cables and the three DisplayPort adapter cables are currently in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world.
