I am curious what the main differences are between using the HDMI output or the DSI connector to hook up a screen?
I understand that HDMI carries audio while the DSI ribbon connection will not, and that the HDMI can scale to much larger screens, while the DSI is meant for smaller LCDS. But beyond that i have found very little info explaining WHY you might use one instead of the other.
Are there power or processing considerations involved?
This is meant as a general question. But as extra info for my situation i will share that my current project is to build a DJ controller with raspbian running the DJ software Mixxx on a pi 3. I would like ALL of the required hardware to be contained in a suit-case style housing.
