VDC-M is VESA's newest display interface compression standard. Used with MIPI DSI-2℠ transport, VDC-M offers unprecedented levels of visually lossless compression as low as 6 bits per pixel. VDC-M solves the bandwidth demand challenges associated with next-generation displays without compromising on visual quality, enabling designers to achieve higher resolutions, faster refresh rates and greater color depths than ever before. This presentation covered how the combination of VDC-M and MIPI DSI-2 can support the development of sophisticated mobile, AR/VR and automotive displays. Attendees received an overview of the VDC-M algorithm and saw concrete VDC-M and MIPI DSI-2 use cases.
