Using USB 3.0 for HD Videos - KBA86999

Last Updated: April 12, 2013

Why should I use USB 3.0 for HD video instead of HDMI or DisplayPort?


HDMI and DisplayPort are used to connect a video source (for example, Set-top box, DVD player, laptop, PC) to a display, such as, TV, monitor. USB 3.0 is used to transmit streaming video data (camera) to a host PC for image processing or recording.
