Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Fifteen PC manufacturers will incorporate a new digital interface for LCD monitors in their PCs this autumn, according to graphics card vendor ATI Technologies. The new LCD monitor interface transmits digital signals directly from a graphics board to the monitor. The current analogue interface in use today is inferior because signals must be reconverted to digital signals for the LCD screen. This in turn can cause signal deterioration, according to ATI. The company also claims that use of the new interface will help reduce LCD production costs. ATI is a member of The Digital Flat Panel Group, a vendor consortium which aims to promote the interface as a standard feature in consumer PCs. The 15 PC makers installing the interface were unnamed by ATI, but Compaq, Fujitsu and Acer are all DFP members. ® Click for more stories
