Easily adapter your DisplayPort socket to connect to HDMI TV's and Monitors - Just add a HDMI cable of your preferred length!
Adapters your Displayport socket to a HDMI (Female) connection. Great for getting your DisplayPort equipped computer onto your big screen TV.
So what are the specs? Well as the DisplayPort standard can outperform HDMI, this adapter is capable of standard HDMI v1.3 features including Full HD. The adapter cable supports DPCP as well as HDCP and supports all HDMI resolutions up to and including 1920x1200 @ 60Hz. Technically, it can also do audio, but you will need to check your product specs to make sure your source device actually outputs audio over DisplayPort, or you'll only get video. It's a hard world, right? But the blow is softened thanks to a 15cm lead which will save stress on your sensitive equipment when you connect up a male-to-male HDMI cable.
Other than that, it's a straight shot! If your DisplayPort source has support for HDMI compatible video output, it's as simple as plug-and-play. Check your manuals or look for the D++ symbol to know if your source is ready for the conversion. This cable is not bi-directional, and does not convert HDMI to DisplayPort (for that magic trick, you'll need an Active HDMI to DisplayPort Converter Cable to convert the signal).

DisplayPort Compatibility Note
DisplayPort (DP) adapters are not bi-directional, and require a DP output which is DP++ (Dual Mode) compatible. When a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter is connected to a DP++ (Dual-Mode) connector, the output device senses the presence of the adaptor and sends HDMI signals over the DisplayPort connector rather than DisplayPort signals. No signal conversion is performed by the adapter. HDMI signals are merely passed through.
