USB Display Adapter

Seeking to provide extra screen area for computers with few choices for external displays, Quantics has just produced a USB Display Extension. The external adapter combines a multi-port USB hub with hardware that can output a secondary image, reducing the necessity of a DVI or VGA port on the laptop itself. A second-generation processor lets the adapter display at a 1600x1200 resolution in 32-bit color; even with the relative limitations of the USB 2.0 bus, this performance is strong enough for DVD playback at full speed, the company claims. Quartics is offering the extension as a foundation for other companies and hasn't revealed immediate partners for finished devices.
