New display standard proposed

— 2:50 AM on August 19, 2005

C|Net is reporting that the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) is reviewing a replacement for VGA and DVI display standards. Dubbed DisplayPort, the universal standard is designed to be scalable, with the capacity for additional lanes to meet the demands of next-gen displays. DisplayPort will also be capable of carrying audio signals, and it will apparently use a connector small enough to be integrated into thin and light notebooks. However, the tinfoil hat crowd should note that DisplayPort has an optional content protection scheme to ensure a secure display path for copyrighted material.
