DisplayPort is a digital display interface standard put forth by the Video Electronics Standards Association. It defines a new royalty-free digital audio/video interconnect intended to be used primarily between a computer and its display monitor or a computer and a home-theatre system. 5.184 or 8.64 Gbit/s forward link channel supports high resolution displays with a single cable. 8b/10b data transmission (up to 2.7 GHz symbol rate up to 4 lanes). Reduced bandwidth transmission for 15 metre cable (at least 1920x1080p60 24 bpp). Full bandwidth transmission for 2 metre cable. Supports color depth of 6 8 10 12 and 16 bits per color component. Supports YCbCr color space (ITU-R BT.601-5 and BT.709-4) 4:2:2 chroma subsampling Optional Dual-Mode support generates DVI/HDMI signal with a simple line-level conversion dongle. 128-bit AES DisplayPort Content Protection (DPCP) support and support for 40-bit High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) from version 1.1 onwards. Supports internal and external connections so that one standard can be used by computer makers reducing costs. Open and extensible standard to help with broad adoption.
