Stylish connectivity for MacBook Pro and MacBook Air

Photograph of the adapter connected to a MacBook Pro

This travel adapter has been constructed with a sturdy aluminum housing and features a pure white Mini DisplayPort cable built in. While the adapter looks great and works well with any mDP device, it's designed to seamlessly match your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro.

All-in-one video connectivity, with travel in mind

Instead of filling your laptop bag with different converters for different displays, this 3-in-1 adapter gives you all the video outputs you'll need. With VGA, DVI and HDMI outputs, this adapter lets you connect from your laptop's Mini DisplayPort port to any boardroom or classroom display, without the inconvenience of carrying a separate adapter for each display type.

With support for multiple video outputs and a lightweight, small-footprint design, this adapter is the ideal plug-and-play solution for travel or BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) applications around the office.

Innovative, built-in cable manager

The adapter features a built-in magnetic fastener, for cable management. The magnet helps guide the breakout cable into place for quick and secure storage while traveling, ensuring the adapter is neatly stored in your travel bag.

Astonishing picture quality with support for Ultra HD 4K

The HDMI output on this adapter supports Ultra HD 4K resolutions, providing four times the picture quality of high-definition 1080p. The HDMI output is also backward compatible with lower resolutions, such as 1080p and 720p, so the adapter is also perfect for your legacy video equipment. The VGA and DVI outputs also support a high-definition maximum resolution up to 1920 x 1200, so you can still enjoy excellent video quality.

The travel adapter is compatible with mDP Intel® Thunderbolt™ devices that are capable of outputting a DisplayPort signal.

The MDPVGDVHD4K is backed by a StarTech.com 3-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Frequently Asked Questions

Installation

This device is plug and play. It does not use any drivers, and does not require any setup tasks other than plugging in the source (for example, a computer) and the destination (for example, a monitor).

Troubleshooting

  1. If using a display with VGA input, use the On-Screen Display menu to perform an auto-adjust of the image.
  2. Adjust the resolution to be the exact resolution and refresh rate recommended by the display manufacturer.

Check that the device is not being used in reverse.

The display does not support the resolution set within Display Settings. Adjust the resolution to be the exact resolution and refresh rate recommended by the display manufacturer.

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 cables

  • Video adapter

  • 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.

Try the following:

  1. Check that the monitor’s video port works with another source.
  2. Check that the cables between the source and the destination work with other equipment.
  3. Check whether the video adapter works with another source and another destination.

The error “Out of Range” normally means that the resolution being output by the computer is not compatible with the display. Try lowering the resolution to see if that helps resolve the issue.  You may need to connect another monitor or restart the computer or source to accomplish this.

This is likely a High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) issue. If you are converting a video signal from a device that can play copyright-protected content, HDCP will block the conversion to an analog signal (for example, VGA) or to any video capture cards.

You will likely run into this issue when you use devices like Blu-ray players, DVD players, and certain gaming consoles. For more information on HDCP and gaming consoles, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/video_capture_cards_video_game_console_compatibility.

Some video cards also output an HDCP signal full time. In this case there should be an option for your video card to disable this feature. You might need to contact the manufacturer of your video card for more information.

Adhering to HDCP is required for converting all digital signals to analog signals or to video capture cards. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do in these situations other than convert to a digital display.

How To

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.

Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a video display interface that can contain different types of signaling, based on the application. DVI cables and ports are created using different connector types to identify what application they are intended to be used in. The connector types are identified by the number of pins on the DVI connector. DVI comes in the following five different connector types: 

Single and Dual link DVI indicate the maximum resolution capabilities of the video source or video destination. The maximum resolutions are Single Link (1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz) and Dual Link (2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz).

Note: The maximum resolution of your video source and video destination are ultimately determined by the technical specifications of the devices. The connector type is not a definitive indicator of the maximum resolution.

DVI-A carries only analog (for example, VGA) with no digital component. DVI-D carries only digital video (for example, HDMI) with no analog component. DVI-I combines DVI-A and DVI-D connections to include both analog and digital components. A DVI-I port may be on either your video source or display, but whether or not a display carries either or both analog and digital sources depends on the technical specifications of your device.

Common Issues

Using the On-Screen Display menu for the display, enter the Menu system and go into “Picture Mode” then “Aspect ratio” and change from “16:9” to “Just scan” or “1:1 pixel mapping.”  The wording may vary depending on the manufacturer of the display.
