Report: Dell DisplayPort LCD Coming this Year

Display technologies consisting of DisplayPort, HDMI and UDI have all been ferociously vying for industry support over the past two years but DisplayPort crossed a major milestone in April when it received approval by VESA to be an industry standard. This week at a business strategy meeting at Dell, the company showed off a prototype LCD panel based on DisplayPort. DisplayPort has several advantages that will allow manufacturers to design thinner LCD panels, Dell's chief technology officer Kevin Kettler said.

Kettler showed a half inch thick LCD that incorporated speakers and a microphone. Audio and video signals route through a single DisplayPort cable. The DisplayPort standard recently adopted a standard that takes advantage of fiber optic cables for signaling. Using technology from a leading DisplayPort task force member named Luxtera, DisplayPort devices that use fiber optics will be able to accept cable lengths unheard of in the industry. DisplayPort LCD panels will be available later this year, Kettler claims.

I have enough trouble convincing people to hook up their TVs via S-video rather than component or coax.

HDMI? Never seen a TV with it.

via S-video rather than component or coax

I hope you mean *composite*.

Component is the BEST mainstream analog connection you can have (the red, green, blue RCA outputs/inputs).

The side speakers are unnecessary , and I hope they make it detachable , If so, I will take 2 of those

Speakers built in to a half inch thick LCD screen? Think I'll stick with my Logitech Z-2300's

Talking of 24" LCD displays, the BenQ has had brill reviews, but Samsung is about to launch one that looks set to be half the price of the BenQ, and if the 22" Samsung 226BW is anything to go by, it'll be a real cracker!

what ? I do... goodbye clunky and huge DVI-I connector technology ! I want my display will all your advantages and your connector the size of a usb plug !

say goodbye to thumbscrews forever.

What's wrong with good old HDMI?

that is so sexy. I hope I can get that around November (my b-day on 7th) and connect it to my 7600GT. Time to give off my hp f70 since I won't get any more benefit from 1280 x 1024 or I'm forced to be with the BenQ FP241W

Doesn't look businesslike.

But the large frame does create the impression of largeness, perhaps even more than a large panel. I just swapped a 20" viewable CRT with a 20" viewable LCD, and the LCD is so "unimposing" in comparison, that it doesn't feel like a 20" viewable screen.
