The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) is a non-profit standards organization in the field of computer graphics.

Techopedia explains Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA)

The Video Electronics Standards Association aims for the continued growth in technical standards development and was formed by NEC, a leading manufacturer of graphics-related products like monitors, together with eight other video display adapter manufacturers, namely ATI Technologies, Orchid Technology, Genoa Systems, STB Systems, Renaissance GRX, Video 7, Tecmar and Western Digital/Paradise Systems.

The first standard produced by VESA was the 800×600 resolution standard called Super Video Graphics Array (SVGA) to be used in computer displays. Another standard being promoted is DisplayPort, which is a digital video interface standard meant to supersede the VGA and DVI video interfaces.
