SlimPort Expands Display Options for Acer’s Predator 8 Tablets and Iconia Tab 10
Sep 10 15
Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. announced that Acer’s new Predator 8 GT-810 tablet and previously released Iconia Tab 10 A3-A30 both feature a built-in SlimPort® interface, which allows consumers to expand their viewing experience by displaying high-resolution digital media from their tablets to external high-definition TVs, monitors and projectors. Acer Predator 8 tablet and Iconia Tab 10 take over the Big Screen with SlimPort connectivity. SlimPort is a simple and reliable plug-and-play connection that uses the existing charging USB connector on the mobile device, and lets it carry high-speed signals in a bidirectional way between the device and display, while also delivering power in a bidirectional manner. When SlimPort is not in use, the USB port supports normal data synchronization and power charging functions. When a SlimPort accessory is connected, however, the USB port also supports external display connectivity, with resolutions up to 4K Ultra-HD, and up to 8-channels of digital audio, including Dolby Digital and DTS-HD.
