You've found this page because you have the need, nay, the desire to hook up a DisplayPort source (I'm guessing your Apple notebook?) to a DisplayPort monitor that just happens to be 5m away(I'm guessing you're on the couch?). Either that, or you've been randomly clicking through my website looking for uǝppıɥ sǝbɐssǝɯ. Whatever the case, the 5m DisplayPort problem still needs a solution, and I just happen to have one right here, which is good since this is a page on a web store entitled '5m Premium DisplayPort Cable'!
What it'll do for you is provide the best possible DisplayPort v1.1a connection between devices, which equals support for most common resolutions up to 1080p and beyond (way beyond) plus 7.1 audio and DPCP compatibility. Additionally, you get top build quality and great shielding on the passive link cable. 5m is quite a ways for DisplayPort, so be sure that your content stream comes in under the bandwidth limitation or you could see a step-down in resolution.
The DisplayPort 1.1 connection supports 1, 2, or 4 data pairs in a Main Link that also carries clock and optional audio signals, each with a symbol rate of 1.62 Gbps or 2.7 Gbps. The video signal path supports from 6 to 16 bits per colour channel. A bi-directional auxiliary channel (at a constant 1 Mbps) carries management and device control data for the Main Link. DisplayPort currently supports a rate of 8.64 Gbps over a distance of 2 meters. Data rate at 5m may vary
Display Port cables and adaptors are designed to be compatible with all types of signals (VGA, DVI & HDMI). but your Display Port device itself must be capable of outputting the correct data type for your display, and not all Display Port devices are currently capable of outputting al data types. Look for the D++ symbol on your products or check your device manuals for compatibility.
