The connector isn't proprietary.

The signalling is proprietary, but not to that product so there are a
number of sources for chips to handle the conversion between OpenLDI and
DVI, especially since that standard seems to be used by a fairly large
number of laptops and TVs until recently (supposedly, both are starting
to move to displayport internally, but I don't know of specific models
that have done so yet).
