Yes as this is not a gaming monitor. Many older parts may not even have DP/HDMI.
That need the higher res to have multiple images on screen.

Wth are you talking about? VGA and DVI cannot drive 4k@60Hz. DVI might do it at 30Hz, but it's still beyond what the spec says so any implementation would be hit-and-miss.

60 or 30hz do not matter for this type of screen for a certain market that is for.
Again it is not for the typical gamer. This is for the business/military field that is in.

VGA Max does 1920x1080
DVI Max does 2560x1600 Dual link

The monitor might be military standards, but the display port and HDMI ports look standard to me.
So you're rattling around in a tank in enemy territory, and the cable falls out due to vibration ...oops.

This would be set up in any number of Command Posts or Forward Support Bases, not used on the move in an armored vehicle. This would get packed up and set up as those bases move forward or rearward.

Quite a lot of armoured vehicles now rely on tech to guide them, this includes cameras externally and displays in the vehicles. Although I admit 24" may be a bit big, smaller sizes are generally used from what I have seen.

Have you guys ever thought that maybe the MAX resolution for the display is 4k, but it can run OTHER resolutions such as 1080 that VGA and DVI could carry the signal for.....

Precisely why the DVI connector could be mandatory : remember HDMI is not that different.

VGA is another story, though, and here we have to keep in mind this "protocol" would be an issue by itself with EMI (could be ok for OSD/overlay).

That goes for any LCD display out there. And all of them look horrible when not used at their native resolution.
Still, unless someone specifically requested, it doesn't make sense to add interfaces that can't fully exploit the hardware. Then again, if this is the military, this may indeed be a specific requirement.

See, 1080 pretty much is a native res of 4k, and 720p of 1440p, etc. They fit into the res in even numbers and should look crisp if the scaler isn't moronic. (a lot are though).

Yeah, but you have to upscale in the video driver. If monitors see something below the native resolution, they may try to upscale themselves and that usually leads to loss of sharpness (at best).

Not at native integers. There is literally an even number of pixels to split. No sharpness lost.

But few monitors do this right, so really, you are correct.

If they're being bought it bulk they might just use it anywhere, older setups might still be using older connectors in which case, it can be used but you're not getting full 4k. I think the point is that it has the connections to plug into anything that might be there, even if it's as archaic as VGA. We're at least past the days of composite video. :p
