Samsung managed to be first with the introduction of a LCD panel that supports the new DisplayPort interface.

Approved by VESA (the Video Electronics Standards Association), DisplayPort will be the replacement for DVI, LVDS and eventually VGA.

The 30 inch LCD Panel with DisplayPort Samsung showed off supports a total data rate of 10.8Gbps. This is double the data rate you get with current display interfaces. This speed enables Samsung to display a 2,560x1,600px resolution image without any color smear.

In a joint undertaking with Genesis Microchip Inc. (Santa Clara, California), Samsung developed its 30” panel using a new four-lane, 2.7Gbps/lane interface chip. The interface technology processes 2,560x1,600 pixels of graphics data at up to 10 bits of color depth or 1.07 billion colors, a feat that would normally require at least three DVI or four LVDS interface chips.
Mass production of the 30-inch panel is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2008.

About DisplayPort:
This interface technology supports both internal (e.g. for notebook PCs) and external (box-to-box) connector links between PCs and monitors. DisplayPort has a scalable AUX channel for two-way communications, embedded clocking for higher speed, fewer wires, reduced electromagnetic emissions, and a micro-packet architecture for flexible design configurations. Its transmission range is wider than that of other interface standards and can be easily expanded. Besides Samsung, Display Port also is supported through VESA by many PC integrators, graphics chip makers, timing controller silicon makers, and the world’s leading producers of digital connection devices.
