    It mentions a VESA connector. VESA standard is very old, and pre-dates VGA eventhough VGA only supports 640x480. Most current projectors usually support SVGA or XGA standards.

    It does not seem like an old projector, but it just kinda odd for it to support such a outdated standard like VESA. However this projector could be for europe only, and Europe may still support the VESA standard.

    VESA does not pre-date VGA, it was actually invented to help standardize SVGA and XGA programming - since a program written for VESA would work on totally different hardware provided it supported VESA in BIOS.
