6ft (2m) DisplayPort to HDMI Cable - 4K 30Hz - DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter Cable - DP 1.2 to HDMI Monitor Cable Converter - Latching DP Connector - Passive DP to HDMI Cord

When you convert video from a source that uses DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort to DVI or HDMI (for example, a computer to a monitor), you will need to consider the difference between passive and active adapters.

If the source supports dual-mode DisplayPort (also known as DP++), then you can use a passive adapter because the source can perform the conversion. If the source does not support DP++, then you need to use an active converter, which includes additional chips to perform the conversion.

Thunderbolt ports support DP++ natively. To run multiple monitors from the same computer, refer to the Active Adapters section below.

Passive Adapters

Passive adapters are less expensive since they do not need to include additional chips. A quick way to check whether you can use a passive adapter is to see if the DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort source has the DP++ symbol above it. The symbol is a D with a P inside of it, with two + signs to the left, one on top of the other.

Active Adapters

Active adapters use additional chips to make the conversion inside the adapter, regardless of whether the source supports DP++. This means that active adapters are more expensive than passive adapters.

If you want to use multiple monitors with the same computer, you should use an active adapter because some video cards cannot run the maximum number of monitors while using DP++. This is especially true if the computer has more than one DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort connection. Check with your video card manufacturer to confirm which type of adapter you need for the setup that you would like to run.

Note: You should use passive adapters with StarTech.com MST hubs, except when you are converting from DisplayPort to VGA, since that type of conversion requires active adapters.  For more information on using adapters with StarTech.com MST hubs, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/mst_hubs_passive_vs_active_adapters.

Surface Dock

If you experience issues when you connect passive video signal adapters to the Surface Dock, Microsoft recommends that you use active video signal converters instead. StarTech.com offers an active video signal converter for DVI monitors (MDP2DVIS) and for HDMI monitors (MDP2HD4KS).

Note: This issue does not apply to the Surface Pro 3 Docking Station.

What is the difference between DisplayPort and HDMI?

DisplayPort and HDMI. They are two distinct standards for transmitting video and audio from a player to a display. But what is – apart from the clearly distinct connectors – the difference between DisplayPort and HDMI? After all they were designed to do the same thing, right? In this article we try to give you some advice…

There are a lot of examples in technology history of multiple competing standards that were on the market simultaneously. Just think about the videorecorder standards war in the early 1980s between Video 2000, VHS and Betamax. For the youngsters amongst us, VHS finally won mainly because of its lower cost and support by the adult movie industry. More recently, there was the battle between Blu-ray and HD DVD.

DisplayPort vs HDMI

So is there also a format war between DisplayPort and HDMI going on? Well, not exactly. While both HDMI and DisplayPort have the same objective (which is sending high-definition digital video and audio from a source device to a display), they were in fact conceived under different constellations.

HDMI (short for High-Definition Multimedia Interface) was introduced in 2003 by a consortium of (mainly) display manufacturers, including Sony, Philips, Panasonic, and Toshiba. These are large corporations that primarily target purely image-driven applications. This is why HDMI is the standard you most commonly find on appliances like television sets, projectors and home computers.

A few years later (2006), another large consortium of PC and chip manufacturers worked to create DisplayPort (DP), a follow-up of the older VGA and DVI standards. The main focus was computer displays and professional IT equipment, so more data-centered markets.

Connectors: what a difference a pin makes

HDMI connectorThe 19 pins HDMI-connectors are actually available in 5 shapes, but only 3 of them are commonly seen: the well-known Type A (standard HDMI, mainly used for TVs, projectors and laptops), Type C (mini HDMI, commonly found on tablets and some laptops), and Type D (micro HDMI, for tablets and smartphones).

The lesser known Type B (29 pins) is used for dual-link applications, whereas Type E has a locking tab to keep the cable from vibrating loose in automotive applications. The other HDMI connectors commonly use friction to keep the plug into the socket – although sometimes locking mechanisms are used that prevent the cable from pulling loose. Such mechanisms are a lot more common in DisplayPort solutions.

DisplayPort connectors have 20 pins. There are two sizes available: the standard DisplayPort and a smaller alternative made by Apple called Mini DisplayPort. The latter is the same port as Thunderbolt.

Though most full-size DisplayPort connectors have a locking mechanism that prevents them from being disconnected accidentally, this feature is not required by the official specification.

Resolution and bandwidth

Every new version of both the HDMI and DisplayPort standards typically introduce some minor new features, and higher resolution and bandwidth. This however does not mean that a new display always supports the latest version of the standard. It doesn't make much sense to include a standard that supports 8K resolution on an HD display. The most important thing is that the standard matches the needs of the display. If not, you will be paying more for something you cannot use.

Today’s most common version (for video wall displays), DisplayPort 1.2, supports video resolutions of up to 3840 x 2160 pixels, at a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The official name for this resolution is by the way UHD, but the term 4K is often used as well (although in the movie industry this implies a resolution of 4096 x 2160). It also supports all common 3D video formats. The maximum bandwidth to be sent through a DP 1.2 cable is 17.28 Gbps. DisplayPort 1.4, supporting 5120 x 2800 @60Hz at a bandwidth of 25.92 Gbps, is becoming increasingly popular.

The most used HDMI-version, version 2.0, features UHD resolution at 60 Hz and a bandwidth of 14.4 Gbps[1]. In other words, it is more important to look at the version number (on both the source and the display) than to compare DisplayPort with HDMI.

Meanwhile, HDMI 2.1 has been launched, supporting 4K at 120 Hz or 8K at 60 Hz. Although not common, this standard is already used in some top-end models. DisplayPort 2.0, boasting 10,240 x 4320 resolution and a whopping 77.4 Gbps bandwidth is available as well, but today no models on the market use this standard.

Audio features: facing the music

Both HDMI and DisplayPort support up to 8 digital audio channels at up to 24 bit and 192 kHz. The main difference is that HDMI features an audio return channel (ARC). This means that not only the source device (usually an AV-receiver) can send audio to the television set, but sound can flow in the other direction as well. This can be used when the television has a built-in broadcast receiver (e.g. watching Netflix on a smart-TV), but you don’t want to listen to the sound using the TV’s built-in speakers and prefer the surround sound system of the AV-receiver. Although this is a valuable use case in consumer electronics, it is almost never used in professional AV visualization.

Cable length: how far can you go?

DisplayPort connector, cable length

There have been various standards of HDMI cables available on the market, but the typical cable available today is under the “High Speed” HDMI certification. Unfortunately, as is often the case with low-cost consumer appliances, not all high speed HDMI cables can actually deliver the proper quality. Poor cables can cause a lot of problems, such as artifacts and glitches.

The HDMI standard doesn’t really define a maximum cable length. It rather describes a performance specification from which the cable length can be derived. Usually HDMI cables are quite short. Only very rarely the display and the source are further than 2 meters apart in television and projector setups. For longer distances, you can rely on a signal booster or an active cable which amplifies the signal. Note that HDMI signals can also run over CAT 5 or CAT 6 cables (up to 50 meters), coaxial cable (up to 90 meters) or over fiber (more than 100 meters).

A passive copper DisplayPort cable transmits very high data rates of up to 4k resolution over 2 meters. If you need to cover a distance of up to 15 meters, you are limited to 1080p resolution according to the specification – although many tests show that higher resolutions are possible as well. An active copper DP cable can cover up to 20 meters, with a 2560x1600 resolution. Also for DisplayPort, fiber cables can cover longer distances. Contrary to HDMI, DP cannot carry Ethernet signals, nor does it have an audio return signal. However, DisplayPort supports many adapters, to connect a large number of display standards, including a VGA, single-link DVI or HDMI.

Another very important feature of DisplayPort, is that it can drive multiple monitors at a time. In this way, a single DisplayPort interface can drive up to 4 monitors at 1920x1200 resolution. This is especially important for professionals who operate a video wall, as they only need one cable between the controller and the video wall to drive 4 (or even 6) displays.

HDMI and DisplayPort connections at the back of a video wallConclusion

Although the purpose of HDMI and DisplayPort is similar for about 90%, there are a number of distinct features. HDMI supports an Audio Return Channel (ARC), making it possible to send sound from the display to the source – which can be handy when using a smart-TV.

The possibility to drive multiple displays with one cable is for many professionals a must. This feature determines in many cases the choice for DisplayPort.

In terms of image quality, there is virtually no difference between HDMI and DP. The newer the version, the higher the maximum bandwidth and the supported resolution. It is in fact much more important to check the version than the standard (HDMI or DP) itself. Also make sure that the cable is good enough to support the version’s resolution and high bandwidth.

Many of Barco's products, including our LCD video wall and projector ranges, feature both HDMI and DP. These products can be used in both video and data centric applications, so it makes sense to include both. For LCD video walls, DP is the standard of choice in many cases, because it offers the possibility to drive multiple displays with one cable connection. By the way, in this article you can read why you can easily convert DisplayPort signals to HDMI using a passive adapter, but not the other way round.

In a purely image-drive market like digital cinema, on the other hand, only HDMI is used. 

[1]: Considering the 8b/10 overhead to measure the effective data transmission rate. Without this overhead, the bandwidth would be 18Gbps.

3ft (1m) DisplayPort to HDMI Cable - 4K 30Hz - DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter Cable - DP to HDMI Monitor Cable Converter - Latching DP Connector - Passive DP to HDMI Cord

When you convert video from a source that uses DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort to DVI or HDMI (for example, a computer to a monitor), you will need to consider the difference between passive and active adapters.

If the source supports dual-mode DisplayPort (also known as DP++), then you can use a passive adapter because the source can perform the conversion. If the source does not support DP++, then you need to use an active converter, which includes additional chips to perform the conversion.

Thunderbolt ports support DP++ natively. To run multiple monitors from the same computer, refer to the Active Adapters section below.

Passive Adapters

Passive adapters are less expensive since they do not need to include additional chips. A quick way to check whether you can use a passive adapter is to see if the DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort source has the DP++ symbol above it. The symbol is a D with a P inside of it, with two + signs to the left, one on top of the other.

Active Adapters

Active adapters use additional chips to make the conversion inside the adapter, regardless of whether the source supports DP++. This means that active adapters are more expensive than passive adapters.

If you want to use multiple monitors with the same computer, you should use an active adapter because some video cards cannot run the maximum number of monitors while using DP++. This is especially true if the computer has more than one DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort connection. Check with your video card manufacturer to confirm which type of adapter you need for the setup that you would like to run.

Note: You should use passive adapters with StarTech.com MST hubs, except when you are converting from DisplayPort to VGA, since that type of conversion requires active adapters.  For more information on using adapters with StarTech.com MST hubs, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/mst_hubs_passive_vs_active_adapters.

Surface Dock

If you experience issues when you connect passive video signal adapters to the Surface Dock, Microsoft recommends that you use active video signal converters instead. StarTech.com offers an active video signal converter for DVI monitors (MDP2DVIS) and for HDMI monitors (MDP2HD4KS).

Note: This issue does not apply to the Surface Pro 3 Docking Station.
