DisplayLink Demonstrating Dual 4K Displays Using 60 GHz WiGig at IDF

DisplayLink, the leading provider of USB graphics technology, today announced the industry's first demonstration of Dual 4K monitors over a 60 GHz WiGig connection. The demonstration features a WiGig integrated notebook, WiGig docking station connected to two 4K DisplayLink USB Graphics adapters, enabling two 4K monitors showcasing "wired-quality" latency and image quality. The demonstration is being shown September 9th-11th at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco at DisplayLink booth #750.

"This is truly an exciting time for DisplayLink, with interest pouring in for our latest DL-5000 family of 4K enabled chipsets," said John Cummins, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing. "Since the first announcement at CES 2014 we've launched the DL-5500, DL-5700 and DL-5900 products capable of providing a 4K workspace on non-4k capable notebooks and computers, extending flexibility to the workspace and increasing productivity. We're proud to show how this capability extends further into the wireless space when combined with a 60 GHz WiGig 4K dock, enabling dual 4K 3098x2160 resolution displays at IDF '14 in San Francisco. Latency and image quality are preserved for a no compromise 'wired-quality' user experience."
DisplayLink's solutions are deployed to millions of customers and Fortune companies globally, now in the fifth generation of products spanning both USB 2.0 and 3.0 but with protocols that are connection agnostic, the perfect partner for wired and wireless docking and display solutions. DisplayLink is also showcasing Android based Smart Phones connecting to multiple monitors showing extended productivity screens for the next generation of connected global business solutions.

I've used Wacom's business display tablet (DTU-1031) which uses DisplayLink USB tech and it's not bad at all. You can't use it for games or anything (since it's using it's own video "card"), but as a direct writing tablet, it's pretty quick and accurate.

Range will be the most important factor in these devices (followed by price). With a 60GHz signal, I would imagine that the connection will only work with an unobstructed line of sight between the transmitter and receiver.

I own a Sony XBR10 HDTV which uses a 60 GHz link to connect the input box with the television and while the tv itself is a beautiful piece of equipment, the complete package is by far the dumbest consumer electronics setup i have ever encountered or read about.

In order to use it you have to have the -front- of the wireless box pointed directly at the front of the television unobstructed (ie. the same orientation as pointing a remote control at your tv from your couch) or it won't work at all. To add insult to injury the video inputs (hdmi etc) are on the -back- of the wireless box.

Think about that for a minute. :banghead:
