Definition and Working Principle
Multi-Stream Transport (MST) technology is an advanced display technology that allows a single physical DisplayPort connection to support multiple independent video streams. Leveraging the capabilities of the DisplayPort 1.2 standard, MST manages multiple monitors through one link. The core of this technology lies in its ability to integrate multiple video signals and transmit them through a single cable, significantly enhancing the flexibility and efficiency of multi-monitor configurations.
Connection and Control
In practical applications, MST technology enables users to connect and control multiple monitors through a single DisplayPort or USB-C port. This is crucial for users who require multi-screen displays, especially in internet workstations or advanced graphic design applications. Users can easily set up multi-monitor layouts without the need for additional hardware or complex configuration processes.
Advantages and Limitations
The main advantage of MST technology is its unparalleled flexibility in multi-monitor configurations while reducing the number of cables and complexity. However, this technology also has its limitations, such as all connected monitors sharing the bandwidth of a single video source, which may affect video output performance based on the number of monitors and resolution requirements.
KVM Switch and MST Technology
The HDC403-P model incorporates advanced Multi-Stream Transport (MST) technology, allowing multiple independent video signals to be transmitted through a single physical connection, greatly enhancing the efficiency and flexibility of multi-screen displays. MST technology enables the HDC403-P to effortlessly manage up to 4 input sources and 3 monitors, creating a seamless, efficient work and entertainment environment for users.
