The HDMI to VGA Converter is your affordable solution for transferring HDMI signal into VGA and Audio signal. The Converter gives you the freedom to use HDMI devices with your existing VGA display devices, including monitors and projectors. You can avoid costly and unnecessary upgrades of your VGA devices with this simple unit.
Educators will appreciate no-hassle wireless iPad mirroring — apps, video, slideshows and more can be wirelessly sent from iPad to your projector using the Converter and Apple TV. Now the entire classroom can benefit from iPad content in a variety of resolutions up to high-definition 1080p. And you can set it all up in a handful of simple steps.
Use the Converter with computers (PC and Mac), gaming consoles, set-top cable boxes and Apple TV. Just hook up your HDMI device to the Converter via the built-in HDMI connector — no additional cable required. Then hook your VGA monitor or projector to the Converter (VGA cable is not included). A Micro-USB cable is included for power, but many HDMI devices provide sufficient power without the cable.
You can also convert audio from your Apple TV thanks to the 3.5mm audio cable port (audio cable not included). Apple TV has two audio-out options: an optical audio port and HDMI. This limits your options because optical audio ports are usually only found on high-end devices, while many other audio devices (like speakers) don't have HDMI. With the Converter, you have a simple way to transfer Apple TV audio signal to any device with a standard 3.5mm jack.
You can even use the Converter in conjunction with Apple's Digital AV Adapter (with 30-pin connector) to project iPad or iPhone 4/4S content. Plug in the iPad's power cord into the Digital AV Adapter, and you'll be able to power your device while presenting material, which is great for long presentations. Please note this is only necessary for Apple's older Digital AV Adapter with 30-pin connector. Apple's new 8-pin Lightning to VGA Adapter can charge and project at the same time.
The HDMI to VGA Converter is the hassle-free little adapter with the big ability to save you time and money in the classroom or office.
Please note: the HDMI to VGA Converter does not work in the opposite direction. It is not possible to convert VGA signal to HDMI signal.
