Cliff Electronics has added a Mini Displayport to its range of FeedThrough connectors. Constructed into an industry standard XLR connector panel cut out the Mini DisplayPort (MiniDP or mDP) is a miniaturised version of the extensively used DisplayPort audio-visual digital interface

Often fitted to notebook and PC motherboards and AV Systems, unlike its Mini-DVI and Micro-DVI predecessors, the Mini DisplayPort can drive display devices with resolutions up to 2560x1600 (WQXGA) in its DisplayPort 1.1a implementation, and 4096x2160 (4K) in its DisplayPort 1.2 implementation. With an adapter, the Mini DisplayPort can drive display devices with VGA, DVI, or HDMI interfaces.

The company's XLR format FeedThrough connectors benefit from the standard 24mm panel cut out broadly used in audio and broadcast systems and is gaining increasing popularity with instrumentation, medical and industrial applications due to the format’s security, flexibility and reliability.

John Hall, managing director of Cliff Electronics, comments; “We have a large market supplying pro-audio, broadcast and audio-visual OEMs and systems integrators. Our new Mini Displayport adds to our very successful range of FeedThrough connectors and comes a step closer to making us a one-stop shop for system designers. All of our FeedThrough connectors are mounted in the widely used XLR footprint simplifying panel design and manufacture and improving system aesthetics. We can also supply our new Mini Displayport connectors pre-assembled into rack panels offering systems integrators fast and convenient system assembly.”
