Connect new HDMI-ready video sources to analog displays with VGA!
Converts a HDMI source device to show on a VGA display with separate stereo audio output splitting. Compatible up to 1080p@60Hz
I shed a tear the day they stopped making plasma TVs. It's taken LCD years to catch up to that image quality, and despite their weight and bulk and other drawbacks, I still have my old CRT computer monitor from the early 2000's. But getting them up and running can be a real chore, so I've decided to stock the Avencore HDMI to VGA + Audio Video Converter.
If you want a new HDMI source device to plug into an older-model TV, Monitor or Projector, then this compact little gadget is sure to impress. It runs off USB power (from a wall charger, laptop or other device) and has no fiddly settings of any kind - just plug in, switch on, and away you go.
It can handle resolutions up to 1080p@60Hz - great for video, text or gaming - and does its best to preserve the input resolution so you get only the crispest of images coming through to your VGA display. With this converter, your good old screens from yesteryear can live on to impress far into the future!

Hi, do you know if this will work okay with copyright free material streamed through an Apple TV. ie I want to airplay a presentation from iPad to ATV and display through a projector?
"Apple TV content has copy protection that our converters cannot get around. If the presentation includes any sort of protected content, it won't work. Our experience with Apple TV is that it will only work with a digital link (HDMI or DVI and maybe DisplayPort)"

Can you tell me the 5VDC current requirement - I am thinking of running the DC power from a USB port. Also I don't see a reference to what HDMI revision. My most usual data source would be 1600 by 900?
"This device requires 5V~1A. HDMI compliance is v1.3 specification - maximum 1080p video and stereo audio (no 3D, CEC, HDCP, Dolby 5.1, etc). We've not tested this unit at 1600x900, but 1600x1200 is fine."
