MST Hubs     ( 24/09/14 )

DVS have extensively tested 3 and 4 output MST hubs and when connected to compatible graphics cards or the DVS Razor LoPro they will cost effectively deliver additional video outputs.

A little bit about MST Technology

The MST Hub is an ultra-small device measuring 75x60x18mm that allows the connection of three or four displays on one DisplayPort 1.2 connector and recognizes the three or four attached devices as independent displays. This is possible due multi stream technology (MST).
Leveraging the micro-packet architecture of DisplayPort™ 1.2 adds the capability to address and drive several display devices through one DisplayPort™ connector. This feature has often been referred to as daisy-chaining or addressable displays.

The MST hub is a device that receives a DisplayPort™ 1.2 MST signal from the source device and splits up and routes the video streams independently to each display device. Using this type of configuration also allows the use of non DisplayPortTM 1.2 monitors. Non DisplayPort™ outputs, such as VGA, DVI or HDMI®, the MST hub is DP++ and can actively convert the DisplayPort™ signal to the other types of display interface signals.

With the success of DVS’s Razor LoPro v2, and v3 ultra-small PC’s, true to form DVS have launched the all new powerful Razor LoPro v4.

The Razor LoPro v4 uses the Intel’s latest s1150 chipset, this delivers a marked performance increase on both the CPU and the GPU front by way of the Intel’s on-board HD4600 graphics. The Razor LoPro v4 now can deliver stunning 4K video via HDMI and DP outputs.

This is a major step forward in ultra-small form factor PC’s enabling the Razor LoPro v4 to be built into small exhibits and with its optional on-board WIFI installation becomes a very easy consideration. Not forgetting control room environments the DVS Razor LoPro can be mounted into DVS 1.5U LoPro Shelf Kit. This kit mounts two RAZOR LoPro’s neatly in the space of 1.5U.
