USB Graphics

USB is expected to be a preferred means to easily connect multiple displays to desktop and mobile PCs as well as to enable shared computing scenarios that are gaining popularity in classrooms. USB 3.0 or "SuperSpeed USB" offers a 10x data transfer speed increase and for the first time allows consumers to stream uncompressed high-definition content to their display via the USB port.

ViewSpan™ is a system solution consisting of a discrete USB device controller and enabling software running on a USB host system. The solution is offered as ViewSpan and ViewSpan5G for USB 2.0 High Speed and USB 3.0 SuperSpeed applications respectively. Powered by unique content-aware, bandwidth-efficient, and resolution optimized video processing algorithms, ViewSpan and ViewSpan 5G deliver smooth high-definition video, vivid static images, and clear text to large consumer and commercial displays up to 2048 x1152 resolution.
