New USB 3.0 4K Video Adapters Provide the Highest Graphical Resolution Output Available through USB

StarTech.com announces two new USB 3.0 to 4K Ultra HD Video adapters, USB 3.0 to HDMI® and USB 3.0 to DisplayPort® 1.2, delivering the highest graphical output available from a USB video adapter, to support Ultra HD 4K displays. The adapters provide an easy way to increase productivity for graphics-intensive applications such as photo editing, graphic design, multimedia creation and other high-detail applications, by enabling users to connect their laptop or desktop PC to a 4K display, even if the computer is unable to output 4K video.

Lockbourne, OH - September 25, 2014 - StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts, has announced the release of two Ultra HD 4K USB 3.0 Video Adapters, including a USB 3.0 to DisplayPort 1.2 4K Video Adapter (SKU: USB32DP4K) and a USB 3.0 to HDMI 4K Video Adapter (SKU: USB32HD4K). The new adapters enable users to connect their USB 3.0-equipped laptop or desktop computer to a 4K television, display or projector, even if the computer does not natively support 4K video.

The adapters feature a chipset that offers a true plug-and-play experience. When connected to a host computer, the adapters will automatically verify that the newest drivers are installed and if necessary download the most recent versions and prompt users to update.

“4K displays are becoming more readily available in the market, but not everyone has a powerful enough laptop, Ultrabook or desktop video card to drive a 4K monitor” said John Mardinly, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com’s line of USB Video Adapters. “Our USB 3.0 to 4K adapters let you take advantage of resolutions supported by Ultra HD displays for applications that require an added level of graphical clarity and detail, such as photo editing, graphic design and multimedia creation”.
