DisplayLink Congratulates Samsung for CES Innovation Award


PALO ALTO, CALIF. and LAS VEGAS .-DisplayLink Inc. today congratulates its customer Samsung for being named an honoree in the 2008 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards for the SyncMaster 2263DX, a widescreen 22-inch LCD monitor that is paired with an innovative DisplayLink-enabled 7-inch USB accessory display.

The products are designed to give computer users a large visual workspace with a separate dedicated display that attaches to the main monitor for widgets, voice over IP, instant messaging, photo displays, digital gadgets or any other small-scale convenience or productivity applications that a user wants to keep in the forefront. The SyncMaster 2263DX and 7-inch displays will be on exhibit at the Samsung booth (Central Hall #11003).

CES has presented the prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards since 1989 as a way to give consumer technology manufacturers and developers an opportunity to have their newest products judged by a preeminent panel of industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade press. Products chosen as the most impressive in each category are selected as honorees and can be seen in the Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Showcase at the Sands Expo and Convention Center during International CES.

“The first USB display was announced just last spring and already the product category is expanding and winning awards for giving consumers ever more choices for easy-to-use, high performance USB displays that range from seven inches up to 22 inches in diameter,” said Hamid Farzaneh, DisplayLink president and CEO. “Congratulations to Samsung for this recognition of the company’s ground-breaking products.”

DisplayLink technology is comprised of high-performance Hardware Rendering Engine (HRE) network display chips and Virtual Graphics Card (VGC) software that power high-quality, fully interactive 32-bit true-color graphics with real-time video playback across a USB link. They are designed for monitor manufacturers, PC OEMs and PC accessory companies who want to develop easy to use high performance products such as USB-connected monitors, video-capable USB laptop docking stations, Skype video phones, picture frames and other devices. The company’s adaptive compression algorithm and graphics protocol can also transmit graphics over other standard network interfaces, including wireless USB, Ethernet or Wi-Fi, enabling multiple displays to be linked over a single connection with a notebook or desktop computer.
