Intel & Samsung Back DisplayPort

Intel and Samsung officially put their weight behind the Displayport 1.1 specification at a press conference at the CES. With their support the competing Universal Display Port (UDI) effort is essentially dead. DisplayPort backers see the interconnect as the digital successor to analog VGA, the Digital Visual Interface used on TVs and PCs and the Low Voltage Differential Signaling links used inside notebooks and monitors. UDI, a variant of the High Definition Multimedia Interface seeing rapid uptake in HDTV sets. Intel has been quietly working in the background for about a year to port its High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) software from HDMI to DisplayPort which uses a very different architecture. HDCP version 1.3 is now available for both HDMI and DisplayPort.
