USB Type-C™ supports SuperSpeed USB data transmission rates (5-10 Gbps) and increased power delivery options, but this new, slim, reversible USB interface can also support Ultra-High Definition (UHD) 4K video via DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode).

In 2014, Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) announced the publication of the DisplayPort Alternate Mode for USB Type-C Standard. With this announcement, DisplayPort was recognized as one of the first video protocols to support USB Type-C™ Alternate Mode.

Allion can help vendors verify Ultra-High Definition (UHD) 4K video and audio transmission over USB Type-C. Products that pass DP Alt Mode certification are guaranteed to support the highest levels of functionality and interoperability. Allion has many satisfied customers who have passed this certification. For instance, we assisted ASUSTeK Computer Inc. with DP Alt Mode certification for their MB169C+ portable USB monitor.
