The connector shield can be ground for all

I don't get it

    Other pins carry additional signals such as identification data, additional ground connections for each of the RGB signals to minimize crosstalk, and sometimes for carrying analog signals like VESA Display Data Channel which allows the monitor to communicate its supported display modes to the attached computer

        Yeah, there's a 5V pin though I think it's more intended for use with active adapters or such, I don't think monitors need it in order to work.

      >analog signals like VESA Display Data Channel
      Pretty sure DDC is digital

      I know what it is and I fricking know the pinout.
      I was merely reminded of it recently fricking with some projector which was rgbhv
      I then remembered that arcade machines go even further and most of them have just rgbs and ground so 5 pins and you terminate it by wrapping wire around it
      Maybe the separation of the three grounds is better for higher resolutions idk

      It is in general, even SCART which was meant for TVs specifically has separate grounds for each color channel.

        Yes, you are correct. DDC is a digital protocol, even though the VGA interface itself is primarily analog for video signals. The DDC information is indeed a digital signal that travels through the analog connector.

    There was a 9 pin version of this. Slightly more reasonable.

    The D-Sub connector series was invented decades before it was used on the PC.

      The d-sub come in any size, get could have picked a smaller one if they didn't need all the pins

        9s was in use for serial and 25s were used for serial and parallel (depending on gender). 15s were also in use for MIDI / joystick so they needed something different

    Future proofing. It's potential is beyond our comprehension. But we was moronic and moved along.
