DisplayPort KVMs with MST (Multi-Stream-Transport) Support or Hub
MST (Multi-Stream-Transport) allows users to adopt a single DisplayPort 1.2 video source to Multiple Monitors, providing an extended desktop mode and splitter mode for multitasking across two displays while reducing bulky cable connections.
- "Daisy chaining" adds the ability to connect a series of devices together using a single connection between each two devices. The new DisplayPort v1.2 daisy chainable displays have both a DisplayPort input and a DisplayPort output. The DisplayPort output connects to the next downstream display. This cabling arrangement, with one DisplayPort cable between each set of monitors, provides a less cluttered system configuration.
- MST Hubs convert a single DisplayPort connection to VGA/DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort to connect with legacy monitors.
