Silicon Line Showcases Latest Optical Link Technology for HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort, USB and Virtual Reality at Computex 2019

TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 15, 2019 – Silicon Line GmbH (, the global leader in developing and providing innovative optical link technology, will be showcasing and demonstrating its newest technology supporting HDMI, DisplayPort, USB, and VirtualLink standards at Computex.

At its booth (Hall 1 #L0901a,Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, May 28-June 1), Silicon Line will feature the first demonstration in Asia of active optical cables with embedded technology supporting all features of the recently released HDMI 2.1 specification—which will become the common standard for connectivity with TVs, set top boxes, video game consoles, media players, and other consumer electronics.

Silicon Line will also use 4K displays and other devices to demonstrate active optical cables from its clients that support HDMI 2.0, USB 3.1, DisplayPort and VirtualLink specifications. In addition, company executives will be on hand to discuss the latest company announcements and developments.

“The transition from copper cabling, which presents many limitations for today’s very high bandwidth applications, to ultra-thin, long and flexible optical cables is well underway, and Silicon Line is leading the industry with the most innovative, lowest-cost technologies,” said Ruud van der Linden, CEO, Silicon Line. “We are looking forward to a strong showing at Computex with our active optical link solutions that are propelling the adoption of these next generation cables.”
