A Displayport is a port on a computer that allows for the connection of an external display, such as a monitor, projector, or TV cable. DVI, HDMI, and VGA are the three display connections that are used the most frequently in modern computers.
VESA is the organization that developed the digital audio and video interface known as DisplayPort (abbreviated as DP). Its connections are available in two different flavors: the conventional, which is illustrated above, and the more compact Mini DisplayPort. Both types of connections are capable of sending the same messages despite having very different sizes. Connecting a display device to a computer, such as a computer monitor or projector, requires the usage of these cables.
