The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) today announced that it has released new compliance test specifications (CTS) for DisplayPort cable adaptors. The new CTS documents allow VESA members to have DisplayPort cable adaptors compliance tested through VESA's Authorized Test Centers (ATCs) worldwide, or by completing the new self-testing and reporting option.
"The DisplayPort logo signifies that a product is based on next-generation display technology," said Bill Lempesis, executive director at VESA. "By simplifying the certification process for our member companies, we've given them easier access to the logo."
The new CTS documents cover the popular Dual-Mode DisplayPort-to-HDMI and DisplayPort-to-DVI cable adaptors, using either the standard DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort connector. Compliance for active protocol converters such as DisplayPort-to-VGA or DVI, and HDMI-to-DisplayPort, are also included. VESA members including Apple, BizLink, HP, Lenovo, and StarTech.com, have completed the adaptor certification process and are shipping video adaptors to consumers.
"Being able to place the DisplayPort logo on our adaptors was extremely important," said Ted Hsiao, vice president of product development at BizLink. "The logo is synonymous with high-performance and advanced display features. The new CTS enabled us to secure the logo for our cable adaptor products quickly, and differentiate our products from the competition."
VESA's third-party testing facilities have been selected to facilitate the certification process for member companies worldwide. Authorized sites include Allion Test Labs in Beaverton, Ore., Shenzhen, China and Taipei, Taiwan; Cable Assemblies and Connector Labs ETC in Taoyuan Hsien, Taiwan; CESI Technology Company Ltd. in Beijing; Granite River Labs in Santa Clara, Calif.; and Telecommunications Technology Association in Seohyeon-dong, Korea.
"VESA requires very stringent testing before any product can use the DP logo. While the new CTS provides the self-test option, some vendors lack the proper test equipment to make this a viable option," said Quintin Anderson, co-founder and COO at Granite River Labs. "For those that can't perform self-testing, VESA's ATCs, including labs like ours, serve as trusted advisors, working with the Association's members to get their products certified and secure access to the DisplayPort logo."
