“Yesterday, Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA), the organization behind several display interfaces, has refreshed the DisplayPort Embedded standard, also known as eDP for short. […] The updated standard now includes a new Panel Self-Refresh feature that was developed to save system power and further extend battery life in portable PC systems. This was detailed to us during CES when we visited the DisplayPort booth at CES.”

“Beginning January 1, 2010, all new DisplayPort related standards issued by VESA will be available to non-VESA members through purchase only. DisplayPort 1.2 is the current version of the Standard and recommended for all new designs. It is free to members and can be purchased by non-members.”
It’s impressive how much the VESA guys love being dicks. To think that it’s because of them that a part of the PC video world is still standard… Between them and MPEG, I start to think that it’s impossible to be in the digital video business and keep a minimal amount of mental sanity at the same time.
