About the DisplayPort Standard
The DisplayPort interface standard, as approved by the Video Electronics Standard Association (VESA), is designed to be available throughout the industry as an open, extensible standard. DisplayPort was developed to reduce platform costs and drive a common digital interface across PC platforms and components. DisplayPort allows high-definition digital audio to be available to the display device over the same cable as the digital video signal and delivers true plug-and-play with robust interoperability. It is cost-competitive with existing digital display interconnects. For additional information on DisplayPort or on VESA, visit www.vesa.org.
