The UltraAV DisplayPort to VGA (HD-15) cable adapter enables the connection of your DisplayPort supported computer to a VGA supported monitor or other VGA display. It supports VGA resolutions of up to 1920x1200 (WUXGA), 60Hz and is simple to setup and easy to use. Connect the DisplayPort end of the connector to your computer and plug your existing VGA cable from the monitor into the VGA adapter. Setup is complete. The circuitry built into the DisplayPort to VGA cable adapter seamlessly converts the DisplayPort’s video signal into a crystal clear VGA video signal. The DisplayPort to VGA cable adapter requires no external power. It is designed to use the power provided through the DisplayPort connection and features a power-saving standby mode. The power-saving standby mode is initiated through the DisplayPort source or based on the monitor’s (sink) status, which is automatically detected by the adapter. Standby mode reduces power consumption when the adapter is not in use and is ideal for energy conservation.
