VESA Experiences Acceleration of MyDP Standard Adoption in Mobile Devices

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA®) today announced the adoption of its Mobility DisplayPort (MyDP) Standard into newly released products. Released earlier this year, MyDP is an extension of the DisplayPort display interface standard enabling mobile devices to share high-definition video, audio, and 3D content with the broad universe of larger external displays through widely adopted connectors.

This past week, VESA member company Google announced the Nexus 4 smartphone will feature MyDP compatibility, allowing consumers to experience mobile content in full, uncompressed 1080p Full HDTV video format. Following the Nexus 4 announcement, VESA member company Analogix announced a new addition to its SlimPort family of products, the ANX7808 transmitter IC. Built on the DisplayPort standard and leveraging MyDP technology, the SlimPort brand of products comply with the VESA MyDP standard and are designed to enable MyDP functionality in mobile devices. The new ANX7808 transmitter provides mobile device system integrators and OEMs greater design flexibility in enabling MyDP support from a variety of application processors.

“The appearance of MyDP functionality in mobile devices confirms that VESA is delivering attractive technology to manufactures and value to their consumers,” said Bill Lempesis, executive director of VESA. "Given the large ecosystem that has developed around DisplayPort, adoption of the related MyDP standard by leading technology companies provides consumers the ability to connect to many compatible devices.”

Through the MyDP interface, high-quality audio, video, and 3D content can be shared from a mobile device to larger external displays including an HDTV, projector, or PC monitor. MyDP repurposes the micro-USB connector found on most smartphones and tablets and connects through a cable or adaptor the display’s HDMI, DisplayPort, or VGA input. Uncompressed video up to Full HD 1080P, 60Hz 24-bit color is supported using a MyDP cable (MyDP to DisplayPort) or a simple cable adaptor (MyDP to HDMI, DVI or VGA). Like with DisplayPort, the MyDP interface includes a 1Mbps sideband channel to simultaneously support auxiliary functions such as multi-touch, keyboard, mouse, and remote display control. When connected to a DisplayPort-enabled display, mobile device battery charging is supported through the MyDP cable.

Backed by VESA’s nearly 200 member companies, MyDP adoption is expected to accelerate in next-generation mobile devices including tablets, ultrabooks, and smartphones; additional MyDP-enabled devices are expected to appear in early 2013. MyDP’s simple plug-and-play functionality with new and existing displays benefits the mobile ecosystem through ease-of-use by the consumer and better display quality of mobile content. Hardware manufactures benefit from MyDP’s increased integration capability and reduced interference with wireless services, and the enabling of more robust business and gaming features; software developers can create more mobile-centric office and 3D entertainment apps; and carriers can provide a variety of new value-added services to leverage data plans and sell accessories like cables, docking stations, and more.
