Dell, HP, Lenovo Support New VESA DisplayPort Standard
Dell, HP and Lenovo jointly announced their support for the newly released DisplayPort 1.0 digital display interface standard developed by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). Dell, HP and Lenovo are VESA members. DisplayPort is designed for broad application in PCs, monitors, TV displays, projectors, and other sources of display content.
DisplayPort enables a common interface signaling approach for both internal and external display connections. This approach can reduce overall design complexity, making digital displays such as LCD monitors easier to use and more affordable for customers.
The new display interface standard addresses low-voltage operation, enabling integration into the latest generation of silicon process geometries for graphics, while still supporting cost-effective integration into the current generation of LCD panels.
Legacy compatibility with DVI 1.0 is also possible for DisplayPort products, providing a means for interoperability with legacy equipment when needed.
DisplayPort is also designed to efficiently accommodate the higher display resolutions and color depths enabled by Microsoft’s next-generation operating system, Windows® Vista. This new operating system is designed to provide greatly enhanced support for higher-resolution displays.
The DisplayPort specification also addresses the industry need for a ubiquitous digital interface standard with a compact connector, as well as optional content protection, that can be deployed widely at low cost. A protected digital interface that can be easily deployed on a PC enables broad access to premium content sources such as high-definition movies.
The DisplayPort interface is designed to be used for all types of digital display connections, including internal connections in a notebook, monitor, or TV. This capability makes it possible to avoid the costly signal translation from one display format to another that is required with today's display interfaces.
Going forward, the micro-packet architecture of DisplayPort can support new innovative features and display product usages that are not possible today with DVI or HDMI.
