The C2G Pro HDMI to VGA Converter is an ideal solution for connecting newer laptops or computers that output an HDMI signal to legacy displays, such as projects or monitors, which accept a VGA input. This device converts the digital HDMI A/V signals to an analogue VGA video and stereo audio signal. Many products on the market, particularly cables, claim this capability; however, most of these products only "adapt" from HDMI to VGA. Without an active conversion process, there are very few devices that are able to output an analogue VGA signal from an HDMI output. The Pro HDMI to VGA Converter is an active device which converts a digital HDMI signal to an analogue VGA video and stereo audio signal. This product is easy to use with no software or drivers required. Simply connect the unit and enjoy high definition content on an analogue display. The durable metal housing protects the converter and provides for a long life. For added convenience, this device is bus powered from the HDMI port, so no additional power source is required. A 3.5mm stereo audio output is also included so that audio can be enjoyed through the display.
