How to Use a DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport Hub

Overview

Tripp Lite's B156-004-HD 4-Port DisplayPort 1.2 to HDMI MST Hub allows you to connect four independent HDMI monitors to a single DisplayPort output on your computer. Connect to a Mini DisplayPort output, or the Thunderbolt port on your Mac, using a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable (Tripp Lite P583-Series). You can display the same image on each monitor, extend the desktop across them, or display in video wall mode where monitors are combined to display as one, enlarged monitor. The B156-004-HD supports video resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) on each connected monitor. Expanded video resolutions are supported when displaying all four monitors in video wall mode, such as 3840 x 2160 in a 2X2 monitor configuration, or 7680 x 1080 in a vertical 4X1 monitor configuration. It supports 48-bit Deep Color (16 bits per channel), DTS-HD, Dolby True HD and 7.1 channel surround sound audio, and is compatible with HDCP, EDID and DDC. It comes with an external power supply and brackets for wall-, rack- or pole-mounting. Compliant with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA) for GSA Schedule purchases.

System Requirements

  • A computer with a DisplayPort v1.2 compatible Graphics Card(e.g. AMD Radeon with AMD Eyefinity technology) is required to display in video wall mode.
  • Mac OS X does not support MST for NVIDIA and Intel Graphics Processor Units, limiting video display on the connected monitors to mirror mode.
  • Backward compatible with most DisplayPort 1.1a equipment running current graphics drivers, with the feature set being limited to that of your equipment(e.g. you may be limited to displaying in Clone / Mirror Mode only). Compatibility with older graphics cards is not guaranteed.
  • MST-compliant graphics cards are limited to a bandwidth of 21.6 Gbps amongst all monitors with higher resolution monitors using up more bandwidth. 1080p monitors will use up approximately 22% of bandwidth, whereas 4K monitors will use 40% or more. As each monitor will be different, it is necessary to verify the percentage of bandwidth being used by each monitor in the display settings interface of your graphics card. If the total percentage of bandwidth taken up by all the connected monitors exceeds 100%, an image will not display on one or more of them.
  • A monitor with a HDMI port.
  • For international use, the B110-INT power supply can be purchased separately; it features plugs for the UK, Europe, and Australia

Frequently Asked Questions

You will be able to connect the MST Hub to the Mini Displayport on your Mac, and mirror the same video image on all screens connected to it. However, Mac OS X does not support MST for NVIDIA and Intel Graphics Processor Units, so you will be unable to extend the video across multiple monitors or to combine the image on all monitors in video wall mode.
