Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) reports dramatic increase in DisplayPort-equipped PC displays. Over the last 12 months, PC displays making their way to market with DisplayPort have increased by 160 percent, reaching 78 displays from leading manufacturers such as Apple, Barco, Dell, Eizo Nanao, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Mitsubishi, NEC, Philips, Samsung and Sony.
DisplayPort is a high-bandwidth interface designed to work across the full line of PC components and offer backwards compatibility with legacy interfaces such as DVI and VGA, and with HDMI. DisplayPort significantly enhances display performance by doubling of the maximum data transfer rate to 21.6 Gbps, and increasing display resolution, color depths and refresh rates. DisplayPort also enables more advanced features, such as multiple monitor support through a single DisplayPort connector; support for high-speed, bi-directional data transfer; audio enhancements including Audio Copy Protection and support for High-Definition (HD) audio formats such as Dolby, MAT, DTS HD, all Blu-Ray formats, and China’s DRA standard; and improved support for Full HD 3D Stereoscopic displays.
