Dell demos super-thin DisplayPort LCD concept

Dell DisplayPort Concept

Dell at its Hybrid Business conference yesterday demonstrated what will likely be the future of its computer LCDs with an unnamed concept. The panel uses the recently established DisplayPort video standard to transmit both video and data across a single cable. The technology allows every aspect of a display -- including the demonstrator's speakers, webcam, and touch-sensitive controls -- to run without clutter. It also eliminates a lot of the back-end processing hardware that adds to the bulk of most LCDs, Dell says, allowing the new 0.5-inch thick display to "float" behind a pane of glass rather than depend on a metal or plastic shell. Display resolutions can also be much higher at 3840x2400 without resorting to dual links, as with DVI.

Since the display exists only as an example, no prices or availability were given. Dell said that it does intend to produce DisplayPort LCDs for end users, however, and is mainly dependent on video card manufacturers adopting the standard for output. Notebooks and other all-in-ones will also stand to benefit from the format through their internal connections and may become thinner overall. [via Gearlog]

    dell VS transtft

    I feel like they are copying my own design. I wouldn't be surprised if they added some lights to the final version :)
