Overview

This is no ordinary video adapter. Yes, it enables you to connect the USB-C™ port on your computer to a VGA display or projector, but it also features a unique Presentation Mode switch. When you turn on this switch, the adapter prevents your computer from launching its screen saver, going to sleep or entering power save mode. The adapter ensures that your screen will always stay on, making it the perfect USB-C video adapter for any presentation or meeting.

Keep your audience engaged with your presentation

When you deliver a presentation, your goal is to engage with your audience, not your computer. But, if you don't move your mouse soon enough, or change your power settings, your screen goes black due to inactivity while you're addressing the audience. This can be a major distraction when you're trying to focus on the message you're communicating.

This adapter prevents screen disruptions with Presentation Mode, a unique feature that automatically initiates occasional cursor movement to prevent your computer’s power settings from interrupting your presentation. It’s perfect for sharing websites, drawings, spreadsheets, PDFs or slide shows during your meeting.

Turn Presentation Mode on or off

You can turn Presentation Mode on or off, depending on your application. Turn it on when you're in the boardroom and want your screen to stay on, and turn it off when you’re using the adapter at your workspace or office desk, to enable your computer's original power settings to take effect. Using the toggle switch is easy, and saves you the hassle of constantly making adjustments in your operating system settings.

Hassle-free setup and operation on Mac and PC

To ensure easy operation and installation, this unique adapter is natively supported on Windows® and Mac computers. It’s easy to connect the adapter using the versatile USB Type-C™ port on your computer. The reversible USB-C connector means you will always plug it in correctly on your first try, saving you the hassle and distraction of repeatedly attempting to connect your laptop to a display or projector.

Crystal-clear picture quality

The adapter supports video resolutions up to 1920x1200 or 1080p. You’ll be surprised at the picture quality the adapter provides, even when you connect it to a legacy VGA projector or television. The adapter harnesses the video capabilities that are built into your USB Type-C connection to deliver every detail in stunning high-definition.

The CDP2VGASA is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

(5 stars) Awesome Product!

By:
Excellent product - especially during the presentations or meetings. Small and very handy - Tv or external monitor, the display resolution is very good. The additional feature "Presentation mode feature " is a big plus. It really helped me in avoiding the screen locks /my computer power settings during the presentations. Overall very satisfied and a highly recommendable adapter.

(5 stars) USB-C to VGA Presentation Adapter

By:
What a great idea. I have sat through so many presentations over the years where the presenter begins talking about a slide and stays on the topic so long that the laptop goes into screen saver mode or even sleep mode. This small device fixes that and provides a great resolution while doing that. No drivers necessary just plug and play.

(1 star) not recognised

By:
I bought this adapter about 4 days ago, and after a lot of searching for some software to run this with, my windows 10 laptop keeps telling me that the device requires a driver to be used. And then I come here to look for any, but there are no drivers at all... No fun indeed.
