This HDMI® to DisplayPort adapter lets you connect an HDMI video source, such as your laptop, desktop, Blu-ray™ player, or camera, to a DisplayPort monitor or projector.
The active HDMI to DisplayPort adapter offers plug-and-play installation, providing a hassle-free setup with no software or drivers to install. The adapter uses a USB port for power, avoiding the need for an extra power adapter. It also features a compact design that requires very little space at your workstation.
The HDMI to DP adapter lets you add a second monitor to your laptop, providing the additional screen space you need to multitask more efficiently and accomplish more in the same amount of time. It offers a definite productivity boost, and lets you view documents, spreadsheets, and web pages across multiple screens.
With support for 4K at 30Hz, you get a sharp, crisp picture that’s richer and more true-to-life than traditional HD, with far greater detail. The adapter delivers Ultra HD content to your DisplayPort monitor and supports 7.1 channel surround audio.
The adapter is backward compatible with 1080p displays, which makes it a great accessory for home, office or other workspace applications.

Create a high-resolution 4k x 2k connection with HBR2 support between your Mini DisplayPort™-equipped laptop and a standard DP monitor
Connect your Mini-DisplayPort-equipped computer to a standard DisplayPort monitor
To output 4K to a DisplayPort display at 30Hz, your monitor must support the resolution and refresh rate. If your monitor also supports 4K at 60Hz (DP 1.2 or higher), you may also need to set the monitor to work at 30Hz.
To resolve this issue, use the buttons on your monitor to change the DisplayPort settings to DP1.1. For more information about how to change your monitor settings, refer to the website of the manufacturer of your monitor.
This is an active 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.
