This week at the 2015 International CES in Las Vegas, DisplayLink, the consortium for USB graphics technology, is demonstrating the latest commercially available Dell UltraSharp 5K monitors connected over a single, standard universal USB cable providing 5120x2880 resolution. The new system for future-proof notebook expansion is being showcased at CES from January 6-9 2015 at the DisplayLink booth #36258 in event venue's South Hall 4.

DisplayLink said the demonstrated solution both solves the 5K connectivity problem and equally enables non-5K PC, notebooks, and tablets to connect to 5K displays over a standard universal “Plug-and-Display” USB 3.0 cable connection. DisplayLink uses a standard off-the shelf Microsoft Surface Pro III, connected over a standard USB 3.0 cable to a DisplayLink-based docking station, to Dell’s new 5K UltraSharp UP2715K, 27” Monitor, enabled by DisplayLink’s latest 5K chipset.

“DisplayLink is proud to demonstrate the scalability of its solutions with the highest commercially available monitor again at CES,” comments John Cummins, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “5K monitors with 5120x2880 resolutions were just released in Q4. DisplayLink is demonstrating dramatically simplified 5K connectivity to any PC, Notebook, or tablet using a single, completely standard, USB 3.0 cable, in comparison to dual DisplayPort cables currently required.”
