Goodbye DVI, Hello UDI?

eHomeUpgrade has posted an interesting story this morning outlining a proposed new display interface that would replace DVI in all PC's. Apparently, a number of leading PC hardware vendors such as Intel, Apple, NVIDIA, and more are working together to develop this new specification. Who knows what features we can expect with this new technology, though you can be sure there will be plenty of HDCP hoops to jump through.

UDI is targeted to become the new display interface for desktop PCs, workstations, notebook PCs and PC monitors, replacing the aging VGA analog standard and providing guidelines to ensure compatibility with today's DVI standard. Further, as planned, the UDI specification will be fully compatible with HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface), the standard digital interface for High Definition TVs (HDTVs) and advanced CE displays. UDI will be able to use High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) technology widely deployed in HDMI-compatible products today. As a result, host platforms with UDI connectors will be able to plug into monitors and HDMI-equipped display devices including HDTVs with full content-use rights management and high-definition video compatibility.
