Connect your DisplayPort device to HDMI, VGA and DVI projectors or displays via UPTab adapters. We provide simple and effective solutions for multi monitor environment including 3 Monitors with support for 4K at 60Hz. Lots of DisplayPort converters, adapters and cables to connect to older projectors or displays.
For years, DisplayPort has become a high-end data and audio link for gamers and staff operating displays at higher refresh and resolution speeds, such as 144Hz and 4K. With its higher data rate than HDMI, the processing of more complex data sources has become much easier, and this remains the case in 2020. HDMI 2.1 may be able to cope, but help devices are still difficult to reach, and the need for a new cable may make it slower than many expect.
DisplayPort 1.4 is one of the best adapters you can get. Although it could be a standard that's a few years old, it still has one of the best features and spec lists you'll find for any connectors. Perhaps the most modern options will stand up to it and still expect to compete.
The DisplayPort 1.4 has more benefits than you may have thought!
Benefits of DisplayPort 1.4
The DisplayPort 1.4 standard was first announced in March 2016. Although it did not add any new transmission modes and thus did not expand the usable bandwidth or data rate, it maintained a solid display from DisplayPort 1.3. This gives the DisplayPort 1.4 adapter a maximum total bandwidth of 32.4Gbps and a maximum average data rate of 25.92Gbps. This provides ample bandwidth to accommodate a 4K UHD stream of up to 120Hz with a 24-bit/px color or a 5K display of up to 60Hz with a 30-bit/px color. It also supports 8K video, but only up to 30Hz due to the high bandwidth requirements.
Support for Display Stream Compression (DSC)
One of the main advantages of DisplayPort 1.4 is the inclusion of support for Display Stream Compression 1.2. (DSC). As a visually lossless encoding strategy, DSC is a better way to get more with your cable, and with DisplayPort 1.4 and DSC, you can support 4K at up to 120Hz with 30-bit/px color and HDR-enabled, or 8K at up to 60Hz.
Support for Dual-mode for DVI and HDMI adapters is another advantage of DisplayPort 1.4, allowing you to link a DisplayPort 1.4 interface to an HDMI 2.0 source and vice versa. It also has improved HDR10 metadata support and forward error correction for noise-free transmission.
Xbox DisplayPort Adapter
DisplayPort 1.4 is one of the popular adapters that help connect Xbox and PS5 to the monitor. Nowadays, Xbox and PS5 only have HDMI ports and need a good quality adapter to connect it to the monitor.
Moreover, you can use this DisplayPort adapter to connect the laptop with the big screens like TVs and projectors. There has been a gradual shift from HDMI to DisplayPort 1.4. DisplayPort simplifies the whole process of connecting the screens with minimum cables and a high-quality audio-visual experience.
Improvements on the Audio Front
Another big change with DisplayPort 1.4 was the boost in the overall audio sampling rate from 768kHz to 1,536kHz. The cumulative number of audio channels was also increased from 8 to 32. A simple adapter will link a DisplayPort source to a VGA view. Adapters may also be used to connect a DisplayPort source to a single-link DVI or HDMI view.

If you want to do some high-resolution video editing or high-refresh-rate gaming (120Hz and up), you'll need at least DisplayPort 1.4's 32.4Gbps. You must ensure that all of your devices (monitor, source, and cable) are DisplayPort 1.4 compatible. Fortunately, DisplayPort 1.4 cables are priced similarly to DP 1.4 cables, so finding one is simple—just look at the product specs. Also, bear in mind that DisplayPort 1.4 is backward compatible with DisplayPort 1.2, so keeping DP 1.4 cables on hand is a safe way to future-proof the system.
How do I check my DisplayPort version?
Unfortunately there's no way to tell from the hardware itself what version of DisplayPort it will support. Check the original specifications of your device, or contact the manufacturer.
What are the benefits of DisplayPort 1.4?
DisplayPort 1.4 maximum total bandwidth of 32.4Gbps. That gives it enough bandwidth to handle a 4K UHD stream at up to 120Hz with 24-bit color, or a 5K display at up to 60Hz, with 30-bit color. It even supports 8K video, but only at up to 30Hz due to the hefty bandwidth demands. A more important feature of DisplayPort 1.4 is the introduction of Display Stream Compression 1.2 support (DSC). As a visually lossless encoding technique, DSC is a fantastic way to get more for your cabling and with DisplayPort 1.4 and DSC, you can support 4K at up to 120Hz with 30-bit/px color and HDR-enabled, or 8K at up to 60Hz.
How to Connect an Xbox One to a Monitor?
You can connect Xbox One to a monitor by using Active HDMI to DisplayPort Adapter. Active mean the adapter has a chipset which converts the signal. There quite a few adapters in the market but only few can convert HDMI to DisplayPort. Active adapters are not by-directional, do not buy DisplayPort to HDMI adapter because it will not work.
