Converts from a DisplayPort (DP++) source device to a VGA female socket, for connection to a VGA Monitor, TV or Projector (one way only).
VGA signals up to 1920 x 1200. That's better than HD (just) from a 30-year old standard! I'm impressed. More pixels equals more fun in my book! The DisplayPort connectors are fairly new on the scene, but they developed it with almost universal compatibility in mind. That's why I can bring you a compact, passive and unpowered adapter which has a wide resolution support and DPCP (DisplayPort Content Protection) integration. This slim design doesn't have any screwholes, which keeps its size down for travel and when you need to connect adapters side by side.
While the adapter knows all the tricks of the trade, not all DisplayPort source devices are equipped to output VGA compatible signals, so check your manual or look for the D++ logo to make sure your equiment has the goods to give you VGA compliance. If so, it's as simple as plugging it in and letting 'er rip!
DisplayPort Compatibility Note
DisplayPort (DP) adapters require a DP output which is DP++ (Dual Mode) compatible. When a DisplayPort to VGA adapter is connected to a DP++ (Dual-Mode) output, the output device senses the presence of the adaptor and performs an active signal conversion from DisplayPort to VGA. This adaptor is not bi-directional, and does not convert VGA to DisplayPort.Why shop with Cable Chick
