With support for different video inputs, including HDMI, VGA, Mini DisplayPort, and composite, the video switch ensures support for almost any laptop, Ultrabook™ or mobile device such as MacBook®, Microsoft® Surface™ Pro 2 & 3, and Lenovo X1™. The switch panel even works with legacy audio/video devices such as DVD players, and supports the use of video adapters for your iPhone® or iPad®.

Frequently Asked Questions
Before You Buy
There are known incompatibilities when converting the HDMI port on the BOX4HDECP to connect a DVI display or projector.
It is recommended to use HDMI to HDMI cables with the connectivity box whenever possible.
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.
To detect the additional display or projector as a secondary display (Mirror, Extend or Projector only), use the hotkey command Windows + P.
This forces the computer to look for external displays and pass the necessary EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) information.
