While HDMI has claimed victory in the home electronics market, in the realm of computers it failed
to gain the same type of foothold. Now, as the gargantuan connector and stifling distance limitations
of DVI grow tiresome, manufacturers are shifting towards an HDMI alternative built on a more open
standard, and that standard is DisplayPort.
This 1171-series cable is the backbone of a DisplayPort setup: the male-to-male cable. From a computer
video card to a monitor, from a console to a television, from a laptop to a projector; however your
configuration presents itself, this is the basic DisplayPort solution.
These high-quality cables offer higher video bandwidth than HDMI or DVI-D dual link, and support
HDCP encryption for high-definition sources. They are also capable of carrying lossless digital audio,
and have locking tabs to prevent accidental removal.
Note: 25' and 50' DisplayPort Cables are NOT 4K-capable.
