Product ID: DPMDPHD2HD
This unique adapter cable lets you connect almost any laptop or desktop computer to an HDMI® display or projector. It supports the HDMI, DisplayPort™ and Mini DisplayPort output from your computer and video resolutions up to Ultra HD 4K.
This versatile adapter cable is also Thunderbolt™ compatible, when connected directly to a supporting DisplayPort over a Thunderbolt I/O port.
This adapter cable is ideal for your boardroom’s HDMI display or projector. You can reduce clutter and eliminate the need for multiple adapters on your boardroom table by providing a single adapter cable that can support a variety of signals.
The adapter cable supports multiple input signal types, so you’ll be able to accommodate a variety of user needs. Employees and guests can plug in their HDMI, DP or mDP laptops and deliver their presentations using your boardroom’s HDMI display, without having to carry their own adapters.
This adapter cable ensures you can maintain an astonishing picture quality with four times the resolution of 1080p. 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.
The adapter can be powered through the provided Micro-USB cable by connecting the cable from the adapter to a USB port on the user’s laptop or to a USB port on the HDMI display. The user can then connect their laptop to either input on the adapter cable and share their presentations.
The DPMDPHD2HD is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

You should only use video converters and extenders if it is absolutely necessary to do so. In many cases, most video converters and extenders are not necessary if you purchase the correct cable.
The following table lists the maximum length of cable for common video standards.
|Video standard||Maximum length|
|DisplayPort||50 ft. (15.2m)|
|HDMI||50 ft. (15.2m)|
|DVI||50 ft. (15.2m)|
|VGA||200 ft. (71m)|
Note: StarTech.com offers cables longer than what is listed above, including active cables, which typically include built-in active signal boosters that allow for longer cables. Active cables are specifically designed to exceed the suggested maximum lengths and are tested at the listed specifications (for example, the maximum listed resolution).
Video adapters passively adapt a cable from one connector type to another. Video adapters do not change the signal type, or change the video standard.
Examples of common applications for adapters include the following:
DVI-I to VGA
RCA to BNC
Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort
Couplers (female to female, or male to male)
Note: You can use a coupler to extend a cable for a short distance. However, each coupler that you use can introduce signal loss, which degrades the signal quality.
Video converters actively process and change the signal type from one video standard and convert it to another standard. They are typically used to convert digital to analog and vice versa, but can be used to convert a digital signal to another digital video standard (for example, HDMI to DisplayPort).
Video converters work over short distances from the source to the destination: up to 15 feet or 3 meters.
Video extenders convert an input signal to a higher voltage for transmission over longer distances and then convert the input signal back to the original video standard. The input and the output signal will match on a video extender, as the same video standard is maintained end-to-end. If a cable is extended with adapters or converters, the signal quality degrades.
Note: For more information on using a video adapter or converter with a video extender, see the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/video_signal_converters_convert_then_extend.
This is a passive video signal converter.
A passive video signal converter changes the type of connection that is being used but does not change the signal that passes through the converter. Because the video signal is not modified, passive converters tend to be smaller, simpler, and less expensive than active video signal converters. Examples of passive converters include DVI-I to VGA, HDMI to DVI, and DisplayPort to Mini-DisplayPort converters.
An active video signal converter modifies both the type of connection that is being used and the signal that passes through the converter. Because this type of conversion can be complex, active converters tend to be larger than passive video signal converters and sometimes require additional power. Examples of active converters include DVI-D to VGA, HDMI to DisplayPort, and VGA to HDMI converters.
