I have seen several threads on this forum and other forums regarding Apples new Mini Displayport interface. Many posts were requests for adapters and cables such to adapt Mini Displayport to HDMI, Displayport, Svideo, Component Video, Composite Video, etc. Currently there are no non Apple manufactured Mini Displayport products. I have also seen many people wondering whether Mini Displayport is an open standard, and whether the connector used by Apple is Standard or Proprietary. Due to the high request for cables and adapters for the Mini Displayport interface, I have started investigating the possibility of Non-Apple companies manufacturing Mini Displayport cables and adapters. However, all of the OEM cable manufacturers I have contacted either have never heard of Mini Displayport, or say it will be several months before they will have the equipment to manufacture it, if they ever do. Overseas OEM manufacturers are still trying to get Displayport products to the market, not to mention Mini Displayport, which is only a few weeks old! Even if an OEM could get Mini Displayport manufacturing devices, it is not clear whether a cable or adapter would even work properly, because Apple has not publicly published specifications for this new standard. To attempt to obtain more information on Mini Displayport I contacted VESA, the company who maintains the Displayport standard. A VESA representative responded that they are not affiliated with the Mini Displayport in any way, and that I would have to contact Apple. Right now it is looking like even if a company wanted to manufacture Mini Displayport products, it would either take a very long time or not be possible at all, because they would not be able to obtain the manufacturing devices required to make the Mini Displayport. It looks like a very large OEM company, such as Foxconn, (which is already a major cable manufacturer) is manufacturing these cables and adapters for Apple. Because of these above reasons I am not feeling optimistic about seeing Mini Displayport adapters and cables for sale in the near future. Please post any other information or questions you may have about the Mini Displayport interface.
