While it still may be a few years before we can officially wave goodbye to VGA and DVI, the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) today announced approval of DisplayPort 1.1 as the new industry standard for flat panel displays, projectors, PCs and consumer electronics devices.

DisplayPort 1.1 most notably adds support High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) version 1.3. HDCP is the copyright protection technology required by both Blu-ray and HD DVD content, which prevents the digital video signal from being hijacked and recorded to unprotected media.

The new standard is designed to eventually replace LVDS, DVI and VGA, and manufacturers are already clamoring to adopt it. The reason is simple: DisplayPort utilizes a single digital interface for connecting both internal and external displays. This means that DisplayPort can carry pixels directly from any display source to any LCD panel.
