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.
