VESA Approves DisplayPort 1.1 Video Interface

VESA DisplayPort 1.1 Video Interface

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has approved DisplayPort v.1.1, a new interface standard for flat panel displays, projectors, PCs and CE devices.

DisplayPort 1.1 is designed to replace LVDS, DVI, and eventually VGA video interfaces which are still in use now, providing the ability to connect to both internal and external displays with a common digital interface.

DisplayPort 1.1 adds support for High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) version 1.3, which enables viewing of protected content from Blu-ray and HD-DVD optical media.

The new video interface standard offers several advantages over DVI and VGA: a small USB-sized connector with available latching, two-way display connectivity, optional audio support, higher performance than dual link DVI at 10.8 Gigabits per second, and a unique micro-packet architecture that enables new display features.

It also provides for low voltage and low power operation, and enables improved interoperability and reduced EMI through its embedded clock architecture.
