How it works

The Diamond BVU series uses the DisplayLink USB graphics technology. Its’ a unique approach to USB graphics, allowing smooth video playback and providing a low latency connection that feels very much like a traditional monitor while providing the “plug and display” simplicity of USB. DisplayLink USB graphics technology allows for high resolution, full 32-bit color graphics, at resolutions up to 2048×1152 (depending on the chip used).

Here’s how it works:

1. DisplayLink software is installed on the PC and uses resources available in the CPU and GPU to process the graphical information from your USB connected display.

 

2. Updates to the screen are automatically detected and compressed using the DisplayLink compression technology (DL2+ or DL3). This adaptive compression technology automatically balances the compression methods based on the content, available CPU power, and USB bandwidth, providing the best possible USB graphics experience at any given moment.

3. A high speed DisplayLink chip embedded in the monitor, docking station, projector or adapter decodes the compressed data back into video or graphics data.
