Multimedia, AV "The Video Electronics Standard Association officially issued its Mini DisplayPort standard Tuesday, based on the technology licensed from Apple. VESA said that all devices using the Mini DisplayPort connector must meet the specifications required by the DisplayPort 1.1a standard, and cables that support the standard must also meet specific electrical specifications. It's a formal confirmation of the news from earlier this year, when VESA announced the Mini DisplayPort connector would be included in the forthcoming DisplayPort 1.2 specification."

You might find this article worth a read:

It does a good job explaining why Displayport is necessary moving forward. Page 1 explains why HDMI doesn't cut it for many higher-end applications.

Remember HDMI is a replacement for s-video, component cables, old style A/V cables, etc.
