Inch thick 1080p display – HP

After the 2310m comes the, erm, 2310e. HP has put its 1080p-resolving 23-inch monitor on a strict training regimen and returned with this new unit that checks in at under an inch in thickness. The 2310e brings as much gloss as a humanoid can handle, even going so far as to replace the usual buttons with touch-sensitive light-up controls. Speaking of light, the jumbo HP logo on the back blossoms in a lustrous white when you turn it on. If that doesn’t curb your enthusiasm for this cake slicer, you’ll want to know it has DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, 250 nits of brightness, a 5ms response time, and an admittedly meaningless 8,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.

amd brings out new cable

Waiting for us when we arrived at work this morning was AMD’s latest piece of hardware. It is something that the company is incredibly excited about, and that it believes will accelerate the uptake of its Eyefinity multi-display technology.

The product in question is this, a low cost Displayport to HDMI adaptor. The reason AMD is so excited about it is that it reduces the cost of entry for triple monitor setups.

To understand why, one needs to know a little bit about display connectors. HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is designed to carry both video and audio signals. One of the reasons that it has enjoyed a rapid uptake on PCs is that the video component of HDMI Cable is the same as DVI. This makes adaptors feasible and is the reason that modern laptops have D-Sub VGA connectors and HDMI ones rather than having DVI connectors.

Of course, as we have encountered in the past, HDMI is subject to some pretty stringent licensing regulations. In order to put HDMI onto a device, its manufacturer needs to pay the HDMI licensing body, which it doesn’t have to do if it uses D-Sub, DVI or Displayport.

This lack of licensing requirements is one reason why AMD in particular has gone for DIsplayport to drive its multi-monitor cards. But there is also an electrical reason why Displayport is the preferred connector.

DVI (and HDMI) signals require an external clock generator. This is a piece of electronics that creates a timing signal, or ‘clock’, that is used to keep various integrated circuits in sync. Each display driven by HDMI or DVI needs a dedicated clock generator, and on the current range of AMD RADEONs there are two clock generators. This is enough for two displays, but in order to run more displays AMD runs into a problem to which it sees Displayport as the solution.

This is because Displayport generates its clock internally. By doing away with the need for external clock generators AMD is able to support a number of displays that is limited only by the space on the back of the card.

The problem is that while AMD is deeply in love with Displayport, monitor manufacturers aren’t. Actually finding a screen with Displayport is difficult enough, but there is the added insult of such monitors costing a premium over ones that just have DVI and HDMI.

Until now the only solution to the problem has been to use ‘Active’ Displayport to HDMI adaptors. These need to be powered in order to generate a clock signal, and all this extra hardware has made Displayport to HDMI adaptors prohibitively expensive. This in turn has stifled the uptake of AMD’s Eyefinity technology.

By releasing a new adaptor that doesn’t need to be powered AMD has managed to bring the cost down by a huge amount. Which is why the company is so excited over a bit of plastic coated wire with plugs on it. Whether or not this will be enough to get the masses using three or more monitors is a whole other question, but at least the solution is much, much cheaper than it was in the past.

HDMI, DisplayPort GoodBye

New boy on the street what will HDBaseT do?
Sony, Samsung and LG are throwing their weight behind a new AV cable standard that poses yet another threat to the future of HDMI.

HDBaseT carries HD video, audio, network traffic and (perhaps crucially) power over standard Cat 5e/6 Ethernet cable. Its backers are pushing it as an all-in-one connector for devices ranging from PCs to net-connected televisions, games consoles and mobile devices.

The HDBaseT Alliance claims the technology is capable of delivering full 1080p HD video – as well as 3D formats – over a distance of 100m. That alone could give it a crucial advantage over HDMI, which struggles to carry a signal further than 15m without the use of extenders.

Seven amazing projects from Intel Research

HDBaseT can also carry up to 100 watts of power, meaning it could be used to power peripherals.

The cable is capable of running at gigabit Ethernet speeds and uses the standard RJ-45 socket found on today’s PCs and laptops.

The first specification of HDBaseT has now been finalised, and it will start appearing in devices as soon as the second half of this year, although the Alliance modestly predicts that “the majority of adoption” won’t take place until next year.

By which time, another potential rival to HDMI – Intel’s Light Peak – may well have emerged. Intel’s optical interconnect technology offers an enormous increase in bandwidth over both HDMI and HDBasetT, starting off at 10Gbits/sec, although Intel is already demonstrating prototypes capable of 200Gbits/sec.

Intel’s technology also uses standard connectors, with the optical technology likely to be built into USB cables, although PCs and other USB devices will need a dedicated unit to convert the optical signal into electrical data

Atlona Technologies and Cypress Technology bring out HDAir

Atlona Technologies is manufactured by Cypress Technology Taiwan and they jointly have released new features for its HDAir USB-to-HDMI wireless converter, which allows any user with a computer to connect wirelessly to any HDTV or VGA monitor, including point-to-multipoint functionality and Macintosh compatibility.

The new HDAiR can output audio in both 3.5mm analog as well as embedded on the HDMI output, making it a viable solution for a much broader range of users. This latest update also enables users to connect up to four receivers to a single transmitter.

HDAiR still uses ultra-wideband frequencies to transmit AV signals and is capable of extending any computer wirelessly from the display at lengths up to 30ft with HDTV resolutions up to 720p or PC and VESA resolutions at 1440 x 1050. Both HDMI and VGA output connections are active at the same time, so the HDAiR receiver could be used to power up to two displays at the same time with identical content.

Chip pair helps bridge transition from LVDS to DisplayPort

San Jose, Calif.—Chrontel has started to sample two new devices that will help computer and display manufacturers as they navigate the transition from LVDS to DisplayPort.
Chrontel’s CH7508 is a timing controller (TCON) that converts DisplayPort signals into mini-LVDS for display manufactures using mini-LVDS technology to drive TFT panels. The CH7509 converts DisplayPort signals into LVDS so that computer processors using the new DisplayPort output can also maintain compatibility with LVDS displays.

The CH7508 is targeted at display manufacturers that wish to continue leveraging their extensive investment in mini-LVDS electronics, which control the internal column and row drivers that control display pixels. By integrating a CH7508 into their display design, a panel can be upgraded for DisplayPort compatibility while maintaining internal mini-LVDS designs for timing control. The CH7508 supports panel resolutions up to WSXGA (1680 x 1050), and is capable of handling DisplayPort link rates up to 2.7Gb/s.

The CH7509 is targeted at computer motherboard manufacturers that have transitioned to processors that utilize DisplayPort video outputs exclusively. By integrating a CH7509 into their motherboard design, these systems can maintain compatibility with the millions of external displays in the market that exclusively use LVDS inputs. The CH7509 supports panel resolutions up to WSXGA (1680 x 1050), and is capable of handling DisplayPort link rates up to 2.7Gb/s.

Developed as a replacement for the widely used LVDS standard, DisplayPort handles video data transmissions between a computer’s CPU or graphics controller and external display panels. DisplayPort handles larger display resolutions than the older LVDS standard.

ASUS’s Gamers overclocked Radeon

Details of an upcoming ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) graphics card have emerged, complete with some early photos, and it seems the company have taken an ATI Radeon HD 5870 and overclocked it.  The fettled card cranks the GPU from 850MHz to 900MHz and doubles RAM to 2GB of 4.9Gbps GDDR5 memory.  Meanwhile ASUS are apparently making it straightforward to overclock the ROG card a little more again, with up to 1080MHz possible from the GPU and 5.2Gbps from the memory.

Connectivity is DVI, DisplayPort and HDMI, and the ports share the backplate with a Safe Mode button.  Pressing this reverts the ROG HD 5870 to a stable configuration, just in case your experiments leave everything inoperable.  There are also exposed contacts for multimeter voltage monitoring and a pair of eight-pin PCI Express power connectors.

So that you don’t waste any of your system grunt running an overclocking app in the background, ASUS’ software will save the settings to the ROG card and then shut down.  According to Chinese site Zol the ASUS Republic of Gamers Radeon HD 5870 will be “available immediately”, though there’s no sign of a price tag.

NVIDIA GeForce 310

While everyone else was eating turkey and growing increasingly frustrated with their loved-ones, NVIDIA decided to quietly set their latest GPU free.  The NVIDIA GeForce 310 is the first GPU in the company’s 300-series line-up, and replaces the existing GeForce 210 as an entry-level chipset for undemanding users hoping to replace integrated graphics in their machines.

  nvidiageforce300series

That given, expectations for the GeForce 310 aren’t especially high.  Still, there are a fair few good reasons why you should consider it: the 589MHz processor is paired with 512MB of 500MHz DDR2 memory, and there are DisplayPort, DVI and VGA ports with the first two easily converted to HDMI with a simple adapter.  An internal input means you can also inject audio into the HDMI signal.

Altogether it’s enough for hardware accelerated 1080p High Definition video, together with being used as a CPU offset either with NVIDIA’s own CUDA and PhysX systems or more generic alternatives like DirectCompute and OpenCL.  No word on pricing as yet, nor availability.
