DisplayPort to HDMI Converter Cable - 5m (16 ft) - 4K
Eliminate clutter by connecting your DP computer directly to an HDMI display, using this 5-meter cable
Product ID: DP2HDMM5MB
- Astonishing video quality with support for video resolutions up to 4K at 30 Hz
- Reduce clutter with a compact 5 m (16 ft.) adapter cable
- Avoid the hassle of converters that require additional cabling and power adapters with a plug-and-play cable adapter
This 5-meter (16 ft.) DisplayPort to HDMI® adapter cable lets you connect your DisplayPort equipped Ultrabook™, laptop or desktop computer to an HDMI television, monitor or projector, with no additional adapters or cables required. The passive adapter supports video resolutions up to Ultra HD 4K, ensuring support for high-resolution applications.
Astonishing picture quality
This adapter cable ensures you can maintain an astonishing 4K picture quality, four times the resolution of 1080p, when converting DisplayPort to HDMI. The adapter is also backward-compatible with lower-resolution displays and video sources. With support for high-definition resolutions of 1080p and 720p, you can future-proof your existing setup for 4K video.
For the simplest and most discreet installation, this DP to HDMI adapter connects directly from your DisplayPort video source to the HDMI port on your display. It doesn't need a power source, unlike some converter dongles that require active power and separate bulky video cabling.
With a built-in DP to HDMI adapter, this 5 m cable delivers a direct connection that eliminates the need for additional adapters, ensuring a tidy, professional installation. Plus, because the cable is 5 meters (16 feet) in length, the cable is ideal when connecting your computer to a display that's much further away than a standard 6 ft. (2 m) cable.
For shorter installations, we also offer a 1 m DP to HDMI cable (DP2HDMM1MB), 2 m DP to HDMI cable (DP2HDMM2MB) and a 3 m DP to HDMI cable (DP2HDMM3MB), enabling you to choose the right cable length for your custom installation needs.
The DP2HDMM5MB is backed by a 3-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Frequently Asked Questions
Before You Buy
Unfortunately no, this device has an intended source and an intended destination. Refer to the title of the webpage for this order.
When you convert video from a source that uses DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort to DVI or HDMI (for example, a computer to a monitor), you will need to consider the difference between passive and active adapters.
If the source supports dual-mode DisplayPort (also known as DP++), then you can use a passive adapter because the source can perform the conversion. If the source does not support DP++, then you need to use an active converter, which includes additional chips to perform the conversion.
Thunderbolt ports support DP++ natively. To run multiple monitors from the same computer, refer to the Active Adapters section below.
Passive adapters are less expensive since they do not need to include additional chips. A quick way to check whether you can use a passive adapter is to see if the DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort source has the DP++ symbol above it. The symbol is a D with a P inside of it, with two + signs to the left, one on top of the other.
Active adapters use additional chips to make the conversion inside the adapter, regardless of whether the source supports DP++. This means that active adapters are more expensive than passive adapters.
If you want to use multiple monitors with the same computer, you should use an active adapter because some video cards cannot run the maximum number of monitors while using DP++. This is especially true if the computer has more than one DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort connection. Check with your video card manufacturer to confirm which type of adapter you need for the setup that you would like to run.
Note: You should use passive adapters with StarTech.com MST hubs, except when you are converting from DisplayPort to VGA, since that type of conversion requires active adapters. For more information on using adapters with StarTech.com MST hubs, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/mst_hubs_passive_vs_active_adapters.
If you experience issues when you connect passive video signal adapters to the Surface Dock, Microsoft recommends that you use active video signal converters instead. StarTech.com offers an active video signal converter for DVI monitors (MDP2DVIS) and for HDMI monitors (MDP2HD4KS).
Note: This issue does not apply to the Surface Pro 3 Docking Station.
When you troubleshoot issues with a video adapter, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:
Video source (such as a DVD player or computer)
Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)
To test your setup components, try the following:
Use the cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
Use a different cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.
When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:
Test each cable individually.
Use short cables when you are testing.
When you test the video source and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:
Remove the video adapter from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the video adapter.
Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together at the resolution that you want to use.
Note: In order for your setup to work properly, the video source, adapter, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.
If a DisplayPort converter with audio is not passing sound from the source to the destination, complete the following:
- Make sure that the DisplayPort connection on the video card is the default audio playback device.
- Make sure that the video card has the DisplayPort audio codec installed. If not, visit the video card manufacturer's website to find out how to update the video card driver.
