DisplayPort set to become video standard

By on May 5, 2006, 9:31 AM
The Video Electronics Standards Association, also known as VESA, announced this week the approval of DisplayPort digital display interface standard. DisplayPort enables a common interface signaling approach for both internal and external display connections. Reportedly this approach can reduce overall design complexity, making digital displays such as LCD monitors easier to use and more affordable for customers.

DisplayPort may be applied within notebook PCs, and for external display connections, including interfaces between a PC and monitor or projector, between a PC and TV or between a device such as a DVD player and TV display.
In the PC world, DisplayPort is meant to replace DVI in the coming years. Top companies Dell, HP and Lenovo jointly announced their support for the newly released standard.
