Dell, HP and Lenovo jointly announced their support for the newly released DisplayPort 1.0 digital display interface standard developed by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). Dell, HP and Lenovo are VESA members.

Designed for PCs, monitors, TV displays, projectors and other sources of display content, DisplayPort enables a common interface signaling approach for both internal and external display connections. According to the press release from Dell, HP and Lenovo, this approach can reduce overall design complexity, making digital displays such as LCD monitors easier to use and more affordable for customers.

The new display interface standard addresses low-voltage operation, enabling integration into the latest generation of silicon process geometries for graphics, while still supporting cost-effective integration into the current generation of LCD panels.

"DisplayPort is an excellent customer solution that can provide advantages over current and other emerging interfaces," said Dell CTO Kevin Kettler in a statement. "DisplayPort can enable more-affordable flat-panel displays, support protected high-definition content, and scale performance to meet the demands of next-generation displays by enabling new features and usages. With VESA administering the specification, the industry can take advantage of an open and extensible path for support, compliance, and future upgrades."

DisplayPort is also designed to efficiently accommodate the higher display resolutions and color depths enabled by Microsoft's next-generation operating system, Windows Vista.

"Compared with proprietary specifications, DisplayPort introduces an open and extensible solution that protects past investments and supports future innovation, which will ultimately benefit our customers," commented George He, senior vice president and CTO of Lenovo.

The DisplayPort specification also addresses the industry need for a ubiquitous digital interface standard with a compact connector, as well as optional content protection, that can be deployed widely at low cost. A protected digital interface that can be easily deployed on a PC enables broad access to premium content sources such as high-definition movies.
