An update about supported video options and 1080p support

Hi everyone,

We have gotten a lot of questions about the video capabilities of the Opsis board which is understandable because it took us ~3 years to understand the space! To help clarify things we have added a new FAQ dealing exclusively with the details around HDMI, DisplayPort and the revisions, resolutions and formats that the Opsis board supports.

The important summary of the information is that on the Opsis;

  • The HDMI connectors support resolutions with equivalent bandwidth of SXGA @ 60Hz (1280×1024 @ 60Hz progressive) which includes;

    • XGA@85Hz (1024×768 @ 85Hz progressive),
    • 1080p30 (1920×1080 @ 30Hz progressive),
    • 1080i60 (1920×1080 @ 60Hz interlaced),
    • 720p60 (1280×720 @ 60Hz progressive),
    • but not 1080p60 (1920×1080 @ 60Hz progressive).
  • The DisplayPort connector supports resolutions up to a bandwidth of ~12Gbit/s which include extremely high resolutions like 4096 × 2160 @ 24Hz.

  • The DisplayPort connector is dual-mode enabled and thus can operate as high speed HDMI ports using cheap adapters. When operating in HDMI modes, many high resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 @ 30Hz should work.

If you any feedback on the information, please comment on the Google Docs version and we will try and get it incorporated into the CrowdSupply page.
