HDMI signals up to 1080p Full HD are supported from almost all modern Mini-DisplayPort source devices, including Laptops, Personal Computers and even Thunderbolt-ready Macbooks and other Apple computers. DisplayPort does all the work with the DP++ 'Dual Mode' hardware, leaving this passive adapter to simply change the socket types for you. That makes it compact, portable and easy to use.
Check your manual or look for the D++ logo on your source device to make sure your equipment has the ability to give you HDMI compliance. If so, it's as simple as plugging it in and letting 'er rip! Both video and audio are supported - don't forget to check our blog on how to enable digital audio on your computer.
DisplayPort Compatibility Note
DisplayPort (DP) adapters require a DP output which is DP++ (Dual Mode) compatible. When a DisplayPort to HDMI 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 HDMI. This adaptor is not bi-directional, and does not convert HDMI to DisplayPort.
