The DVI [Digital Visual Interface] is a standard for high-speed,
high-resolution digital displays.
Below is a 24 Pin DVI Female connector
seen at the Computer. The connector diagram and pin-out table show a
DVI-I Digital and Analog [RGB]; 29 pins [modified D style] connector. A
DVI-D Digital only connector with 24 pins [modified D style] looks about
the same with out the 4 analog 'C' pins.
The DVI interface is found on a number of devices including TVs,
Computers, Monitors, and Video cards.
Digital Visual Interface [DVI] was developed by the Digital Display Working
Note that the Digital Display Working
Group disbanded around 2006, so don't expect an up-grade for DVI.
