Cliff Electronics announces the addition of a Mini Displayport to its market leading range of FeedThrough connectors. Assembled into an industry standard XLR connector panel cut out the Mini DisplayPort (MiniDP or mDP) is a miniaturised version of the widely used DisplayPort audio-visual digital interface
Frequently fitted to PC and notebook motherboards and AV Systems, unlike its Mini-DVI and Micro-DVI predecessors, the Mini DisplayPort can drive display devices with resolutions up to 2560×1600 (WQXGA) in its DisplayPort 1.1a implementation, and 4096×2160 (4K) in its DisplayPort 1.2 implementation. With an adapter, the Mini DisplayPort can drive display devices with VGA, DVI, or HDMI interfaces.
Cliff’s XLR format FeedThrough connectors take advantage of the standard 24mm panel cut out widely used in audio and broadcast systems and which is finding increasing popularity instrumentation, medical and industrial applications due to the format’s flexibility, security and reliability.
A true FeedThrough connector, the new Cliff Mini Displayport is connected on both sides of the control panel using standard cables, greatly simplifying system assembly. It is available with a plastic or metal faceplate, may be front or rear mounted to a panel and offers plain, countersunk or M3 threaded mounting holes.
