          How to Daisy Chain Multiple Monitors Using DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport (MST)

           

           

           

          What is DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport (MST)?

          DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport allows you to daisy chain monitors with DisplayPort v1.2. "Daisy chaining" is a term that describes the ability to connect a series of devices together using a single connection between each two devices. DisplayPort daisy chainable monitors have both a DisplayPort input and a DisplayPort output. The DisplayPort output connects to the next downstream monitor. This cabling arrangement, with one DisplayPort cable between each set of monitors, provides a less cluttered system configuration.

          Daisy chain monitors using DisplayPort MST

          Before getting started, the following is required:

          • Compatible video or graphics card (GPU) with DisplayPort 1.2 port
          • DisplayPort 1.2 MST-capable monitor
          • Latest video or graphics card (GPU) drivers
          Note: DisplayPort 1.2 MST may not be supported by all monitors with DisplayPort 1.2. To learn more, refer to the User Manual of your monitor.

          How to connect two monitors in a daisy chain using DisplayPort MST?

          To connect your PC to multiple monitors using DisplayPort MST:
          1. Verify that the video or graphics card (GPU) on your PC supports has a DisplayPort 1.2 MST
          2. Connect your PC to the DisplayPort In on the first monitor.
          3. Connect DisplayPort Out on the first monitor to DisplayPort In on the second monitor (Figure 2).
            To daisy chain more than 2 monitors, follow a similar sequence, first monitor connects to second, second monitor to third and so on.
          4. Using the On-Screen Display (OSD) menu, Enable DisplayPort 1.2 on your monitor.
            To learn more, refer to the User Manual of your monitor.
          5. Ensure that the last monitor in the chain has DisplayPort 1.2 mode Disabled.
