Displayport™: Digital Multimedia Display Interface for PCs

Document Thumbnail

The newly-developed DisplayPort™ standard is intended to provide an interface suited to a very wide range of applications, including both external (“box to box”) and internal (e.g., notebook PC panel interface) connections. With the widespread industry support, DisplayPort™ will replace just about every major digital multimedia display interface for PC’s that are in existence today. Previous display interfaces, such as DVI, LVDS, and VGA, will no longer be included on displays in the future, as the PC industry vision is to have ultra-sleek displays with just a DisplayPort™ connector on the back of the PC. DisplayPort™ allows high-definition digital audio to be available to the display device over the same cable as the digital video signal. It delivers true plug-and-play with robust interoperability. When the optional content protection capability is active, DisplayPort™ will support viewing high definition television, video and audio types of protected content. This paper provides an overview of the proposed standard and its basic technical details.
