VESA membership surpasses 260 companies; demos at CES 2018 to highlight versatility, ease of use and superior performance of VESA standards
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA®) today announced it has reached a new milestone with membership growth to more than 260 companies representing all aspects of the consumer electronics supply chain. Over the past year, VESA has seen strong momentum in the adoption of its display standards across the mobile and personal computing industries, driven in part by the continued adoption of the USB Type-C connector with DisplayPort Alt Mode, as well as by new VESA standard developments that are enabling new and emerging display applications such as high dynamic range (HDR) monitors, 8K monitors and TVs, and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) headsets.
VESA will highlight many of these new developments at CES 2018 including new product demonstrations showing off the versatility, ease of use, and superior performance of DisplayPort and related VESA standards.
According to market research firm Strategy Analytics, 166 million handsets, tablets and PCs globally have DisplayPort Alt Mode as a feature via their USB-C ports. Eric Smith, Director of Tablets and Touchscreens at Strategy Analytics, added, "We expect increased adoption of DisplayPort Alt Mode in consumer devices to handle the increased demands of high-quality video, AR/VR use cases, and even to enable productivity solutions such as Continuum for Windows and Samsung DeX."
