This DisplayPort Female to Female Adapter (AKA, DisplayPort Coupler or Joiner) aids in providing two valuable functions; 1) To join two standard DisplayPort cables (with Male plugs) together, and 2) to convert the gender of a DisplayPort Male plug to a Female socket. Supporting the DisplayPort v1.2 spec, you can expect resoutions up to UltraHD 4K@60Hz when used with short 1m-3m cables, and reliable extension of 1080p/60Hz signals when using longer cables.
Finally, a DisplayPort Coupler for all those cable extension, joining and gender changing requirements.
'So what's the big deal about a DisplayPort Coupler' I hear you ask? Well apart from being hard to find, these handy adapters let you change the gender of a Male DisplayPort (DP) cable, and also let you join two standard DisplayPort Cables together.
Now, let's keep things real here... the DisplayPort standard has never been a star when it comes to operating over long distances (which is why you won't find many DP cables over 5m), however for all those times when you just need to tether two cables together for a meeting or presentation, this little friend can be a lifesaver.
So whether you're joining your existing DisplayPort cable to connect with the office projector, or installing a cable to hang from the back of your monitior with a Female interface for easy plug 'n play, you can be sure Cable Chick has you covered with this DisplayPort Coupler.
Maximum lengths when joining cables
We all know that there's some loss of signal strength when using adapters. And while digital signals will still deliver a perfect image, the overall distance you can run a signal is shortened when an adapter is introduced. So when joining two DisplayPort cables, the maximum length will greatly depend on the required resolution. You can expect support for 3840x2160p (Ultra HD 4K) @ 60Hz when the two cables combined measure under 3m, and Ultra HD 4K@30Hz with joined cables up to 5m-7m, and 1080p@60Hz should work up to 10m.
