VESA hosted a press conference in Taipei on 18th November to announce the latest specifications—DisplayPort 2.0, DisplayHDR 1.1 and the new DisplayHDR 1400 performance level. The latest DisplayPort 2.0 not only supports FEC, DSC, and HDR metadata, it also enables 3X increase in video bandwidth compared to its predecessor, DisplayPort 1.4a. VESA also updated the DisplayHDR specificaiton, putting tigther requirements on the performance of display, such as luminance and gamut, and requires displays to pass the active dimming test.
Allion, as a long-time partner and Authorized Test Center (ATC) of VESA, was invited to join the press conference and share our experiences in testing and certifying DisplayHDR. DisplayHDR 1.1 testing is also available now.
