4 Naming Conventions for Optional DisplayPort
Features
DisplayPort Specifica1on Feature Name Conven1on(s) for Product Marke1ng Use Dual-­‐Mode Dual-­‐Mode DisplayPort (Applies to upstream devices or adaptors) (Use of the Dual-­‐Mode DisplayPort logo is op4onal) HBR2 HBR2 (op4on: High Bit Rate 2) MST Mul4-­‐Stream Transport HDCP HDCP or HDCP Content Protec4on Audio Only Audio Only Deep Color (must support 30 bits per color and 10 bits per component or greater) Deep Color DisplayPort 3D DisplayPort 3D High bit rate audio (IEC-­‐61937 bit rates exceeding 6.144Mbps) High Precision Audio GTC (Global Time Code) Accu-­‐Sync Mobility DisplayPort MyDP (Applies to upstream devices) MyDP Enhanced (Applies to Sink devices) Please refer to the notes on the following slide regarding the use of the above naming conven6ons. 5 Naming Conventions for Optional DisplayPort
Features (Continued)
Notes regarding use of the naming conven4ons on the previous slide: • Any Op4onal DisplayPort Features claimed to be supported by a device must be validated during compliance tes4ng. • If an Op4onal DisplayPort Feature can be enabled through a device upgrade path, then such feature should be followed by the word “Ready”. For an example a product might be labeled “Mul4-­‐Steam Ready” if it can be updated to support Mul4-­‐Stream through a future firmware update. 6 The DisplayPort Logos
!   The VESA DisplayPort Trademarks include the following Logos:
(These are for reference only and are not to be used for reproduction)
DisplayPort Logo
Dual-Mode DisplayPort Logo DisplayPort Active Cable Logo
!   VESA Policy regarding the use of these DisplayPort logos:
§  Logo use is governed by the VESA DisplayPort Trademark License
Agreement
§  DisplayPort Logo use is limited to VESA member companies and their
resellers
§  DisplayPort Logo use on products is limited to compliance tested
DisplayPort products only, unless a waiver is received by VESA
7 Use of the (Standard) DisplayPort Logo
DisplayPort Logo
(for reference only, do not reproduce)
ü  The DisplayPort logo is commonly used for the following:
§ 
To identify a DisplayPort receptacle (port identification), or cable, for the convenience of
the product user
§ 
To identify a product as having DisplayPort capability
§  Logo on product, or on product collateral including instruction manual and advertising, to denote
DisplayPort capability (must pass compliance testing to be used on a product or product collateral)
§ 
To indicate that a device has been tested to be DisplayPort compliant
!   The DisplayPort logo cannot be used for the following:
§ 
The DisplayPort Logo cannot be combined with other information to identify DisplayPort
standard revision or optional features
§  As an example, it is NOT acceptable to label products “DP 1.2”
§ 
As an exception to this rule, the “Dual-Mode DisplayPort Logo” or “DisplayPort Active
Cable Logo” can be used to identify those product capabilities as discussed on the following
pages
Capability of a DisplayPort device will be identified through means presented in this guideline
8 Identification of Devices Designed to the
DisplayPort 1.2 Standard
!   There is often confusion regarding how a “DisplayPort 1.2” (or DP 1.2a) device should
be identified vs. a “DisplayPort 1.1a” device.
!   A DisplayPort device is not to be identified by the DisplayPort Standard revision
number; DisplayPort Standard revisions are technical documents used to introduce new
features and add clarification. New DisplayPort Standard revisions replace previous
specification revisions, so at any time there is only one valid DisplayPort Standard.
!   A device designed to the DisplayPort 1.1a standard is a “DisplayPort” device, and a
device designed to the DisplayPort 1.2 standard is also a “DisplayPort” device (it is NOT
a “DisplayPort 1.2” device).
!   Devices that support optional features defined in current DisplayPort Standard (which at
this time is DisplayPort 1.2a) may claim support for those specific features as outlined in
this document.
!   For device to claim support for optional DisplayPort features (such as Dual-Mode,
HBR2, Multi-Stream, etc.), those features must be validated during logo testing as
specified within the CTS documents.

12 Use of the Dual-Mode DisplayPort Logo
Dual-Mode DisplayPort Logo
(for reference only, do not reproduce)
!   A Dual-Mode DisplayPort device may use either the (standard)
DisplayPort logo or the Dual-Mode DisplayPort logo.
§  Use of the Dual-Mode DisplayPort logo on a Dual-Mode device is Optional
§  It is acceptable and common practice to use the standard DisplayPort logo on a
Dual-Mode DisplayPort device or cable adaptor
!   The Dual-Mode DisplayPort logo can only used for the following:
§  To identify a Dual-Mode DisplayPort-capable Source receptacle (for port-type
identification), or a Dual-Mode DisplayPort cable adaptor plug (for plug-type
identification)
§  To identify a product as having Dual-Mode DisplayPort capability
§  This includes use of the Dual-Mode DisplayPort logo on the product or product collateral,
including instruction manual and advertising
§  To indicate that a device has been tested to be Dual-Mode DisplayPortcompliant
!   This logo is often referred to as “DP++” in text form
13 Use of the Dual-Mode DisplayPort Logo (cont.)
!   The Dual-Mode DisplayPort logo cannot be used for the following:
§  The Dual-Mode DisplayPort Logo cannot be combined with other
information to identify the Dual-Mode DisplayPort adaptor type
number, specification revision, performance, or optional features
§ 
As an example, it is NOT acceptable to label product “ Type 2”
§  When using either the “DP” or “DP++” logo, the Dual-Mode
capability of a DisplayPort device will be identified through means
discussed later in this guideline

17 Use of DisplayPort Active Cable Logo
DisplayPort Active Cable Logo
(for reference only, do not reproduce)
!   The DisplayPort Active Cable logo is specifically used to:
§  Identify a cable product as a DisplayPort Active Cable
§  The logo is used on the product, or on the product collateral including packaging, instruction manual
and advertising to denote DisplayPort Active Cable functionality.
§  A DisplayPort Active Cable may also use, or instead use, the standard DP logo; use of the
DisplayPort Active Cable Logo is optional. When the standard DP logo is used, a separate label
should also be used to identify the product as an active cable to prevent user confusion.
§  To identify the signal direction through the cable as a convenience of the
product user
§  The design of the DisplayPort Active Cable Logo includes an arrow to identify signal direction and
thereby the Source and Sink ends of the cable. The logo is to be oriented on the connector such that
the arrow on the logo is pointed toward the Sink end of the cable.
§  If the DisplayPort Active Cable Logo is NOT used, then the cable must be labeled to identify the
Source (or Computer) and Sink (or Display) ends.
§  To indicate that the cable product has been tested to be compliant with
DisplayPort Active Cable requirements
!   The DisplayPort Active Cable Logo cannot be used with other types
of DisplayPort products
18 Promotion of MyDP Support
! “MyDP” is a product capability feature that may be
identified on device collateral including packaging,
documentation and advertising.
! MyDP capable devices will carry the standard “DP” logo
!   There are three MyDP device categories:
§  “MyDP” Source Devices (which also applies to
Docking Stations)
§  “MyDP” Cable Adaptors
§  Sink Devices with “MyDP Enhanced” feature
19 DisplayPort Logo Use with MyDP Devices
DisplayPort Logo (to be used for MyDP devices)
(for reference only, do not reproduce)
!   By intent of the VESA Mobility DisplayPort (MyDP) Standard, MyDP
Source (or upstream) devices will use reduced pin count nonDisplayPort receptacles.
§ 
They will not use the standard DisplayPort or mini-DisplayPort connector, and
instead may use the micro-USB connector, as one example
!   VESA does not intend to create a special MyDP logo; MyDP devices
will use the standard DisplayPort logo
§ 
§ 
§ 
§ 
A Source device (which includes docking stations) with a dual-use output receptacle
(such as USB and MyDP) may use both connectivity logos (such as USB and DP)
near the connector for port identification
A MyDP cable, which may include a USB connector on one end, may use the DP
logo on the over-mold of one or both ends of the cable
A DisplayPort Sink that supports MyDP will also use the DP logo
Identification of MyDP sink support capability is discussed later in this guideline
20 Qualification Requirements for a Source Device
Supporting the MyDP Feature Set
!   In order for a Source (or upstream device such as a docking station) to
use the DP logo and claim support for MyDP, the device must pass the
CTS tests for a MyDP Source
§  CTS documents for MyDP are currently under development
!
MyDP Source devices can also support (and claim to support) other
DisplayPort options, such as:
§  HDCP
§  Multi-Stream
§  1080p 60Hz
§  (For MyDP, which is defined to use only one main link lane, 1080p 60Hz is
supported through the use of HBR2. In the case of MyDP, it is assumed that
“1080p 60Hz” has more meaning to the consumer than “HBR2” and is thus
the preferred declaration)
21 Qualification Requirements for Cable Devices
Supporting the MyDP Feature Set
!   In order for a MyDP cable adaptor to use the DP logo, it must pass the
relevant MyDP CTS tests (under development).
!   Example categories:
§  MyDP to DVI adaptor
§  MyDP to HDMI adaptor
§  MyDP to VGA adaptor
§  MyDP to DP active cable adaptor
§  MyDP to DP passive cable adaptor
22 Sink Device Support of MyDP and the “MyDP
Enhanced” Designation
!   A MyDP Source using a MyDP cable is designed to work with any
new or existing DisplayPort Sink devices.
§  A MyDP cable may have either a mini-DP or standard DP plug on the Sink end.
!   A DisplayPort Sink device can be promoted as “MyDP Enhanced”
which provides additional support for MyDP Source (or docking
station) devices
§  In order for a Sink device to claim the MyDP Enhanced feature, the Sink device
must pass the CTS requirements for a MyDP Enhanced Sink
§ 
CTS documents for the MyDP Enhanced feature set are under development
§  Required capabilities for a “MyDP Enhanced” Sink device include:
§ 
5V power producer capable (A standard DP 1.2 Sink only requires 3.3V)
§ 
HDCP (HDCP is currently an option for a standard DP 1.2 Sink)
§ 
Verification of single-ended AUX operation to ensure interoperability with a MyDP
Source
§  If there are multiple DisplayPort inputs on a “MyDP Enhanced” Sink device, and
not all inputs support the MyDP Enhanced feature set, then those inputs supporting
the feature set can be labeled “MyDP Enhanced” in addition to the DP logo.
23 Promotion of MyDP Support
!
Example Use for a Source or Upstream Device (packaging,
documentation, etc.)
§  “Includes MyDP output”
§  “MyDP-enabled”
§  “MyDP-enabled - supports up to 1080p 60Hz video
§  “Mobility DisplayPort (MyDP) enabled”
!
Example Use for a Sink Device (packaging, documentation, etc.)
