Nobody was happy to see digital video standards splinter along the lines of DisplayPort
and HDMI back in 2007
. Two years on and Dell and Apple seem to be the primary forces behind the standard as the rest of the consumer electronics industry opts for straight-up HDMI
. Kind of makes you wonder if DisplayPort is the new Firewire
particularly with HDMI 1.4
and minascule Type D HDMI plugs
around the corner. At least Eizo's tossing DisplayPort another bone
today with the introduction of its 23-inch FlexScan EV2333W-H in Japan. The 1920x1080 pixel display with 3000:1 contrast, 300nits of brightness, and 7-ms response also packs a DVI-D jack to help ease the transition. It'll cost ¥54,800 (about $560) when it lands in Japan mid-July. Not exactly a game-changer.
