By now, we all have at least one HDMI cable sitting around not doing anything, so it makes sense to save money when possible by reusing those downtrodden components as situations such as this arise: you have a new DisplayPort source device, but you're stuck with a HDMI input on your display. Never fear! Cable Chick is here! And I've brought along a compact little type changer plug which is a one-way ticket from DisplayPort (male) to HDMI v1.3 (female). Audio support is included if your source device outputs it.
This adapter can easily output HDMI signals at 1080p and is a simple a solution for converting DisplayPort signals to HDMI v1.3. The adapter also supports HDCP version 1.2 for HDMI and DPCP (DisplayPort Content Protection) for all your protected media viewing. Please note this is a passive adapter and required HDMI-compliant DisplayPort output for proper functioning. Check your manual or look for the D++ icon to know for sure. This adaptor is not bi-directional, and does not convert HDMI to DisplayPort.
DisplayPort Compatibility Note
DisplayPort (DP) cables and adapters are not bi-directional, and require a DP output which is DP++ (Dual Mode) compatible. When a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter/cable is connected to a DP++ (Dual-Mode) output, the output device senses the presence of the adaptor/cable and sends HDMI signals over the DisplayPort connector rather than DisplayPort signals. No signal conversion is performed by the adapter/cable. HDMI signals are merely passed through.Why shop with Cable Chick
