DisplayLink to Demo Breakthrough Wireless Multi-Display Technology at CES.

Display Connectivity Leader Makes Cable-Free, Wireless UWB Monitor Links a Reality

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- DisplayLink will demonstrate groundbreaking display connectivity over Wireless USB connections at the 2007 International CES conference, January 7 through 11 in Las Vegas. The demonstration will show how the company's technology can be used to deliver excellent image quality and high-performance monitor/mouse/keyboard interactivity over a Wireless USB connection between a display and a PC.

DisplayLink provides high-performance connectivity chips that allow monitor manufacturers, PC OEMs and PC accessory companies to develop products for multi-display computing, including USB-connected monitors, video-enabled USB notebook docking stations, display connectivity accessories and other devices. This demonstration builds upon DisplayLink's USB-based display connectivity technology and represents a natural progression from wired USB to wireless USB display connectivity.

"The display is the last PC peripheral to go wireless, and our demonstration at CES will show that this can now be achieved with the same level of image quality and responsiveness as a VGA or DVI connection," said Hamid Farzaneh, DisplayLink president and CEO. "The industry's transition to more flexible links is a paradigm-shifting moment for display connectivity as consumers can easily keep adding monitors, photo frames and other application specific displays to PCs in their work or home environments using wireless USB."

Wireless USB is based on the WiMedia Alliance UWB common radio platform, which is capable of sending 480 Mbps at distances up to three meters and 110 Mbps at up to 10 meters. It operates in the 3.1 GHz to 10.6 GHz frequency range and spreads communication over an ultra-wideband of frequencies.

Editor's note: DisplayLink's UWB solution will be on display at CES Showstoppers table 54A, or can be demonstrated by appointment. To schedule a UWB display technology briefing and demo with DisplayLink at CES, contact Paula Brici at 949-677-6527,; or David Rodewald at 805-494-9508,
