CONNECT DISPLAYPORT DEVICES TO DVI MONITORS
Easily connect your DisplayPort-enabled devices to a DVI monitor with the DisplayPort to DVI Adapter. This convenient DisplayPort male to DVI female adapter cable allows you to display video from current laptops, desktops and tablets on monitors that are equipped with a DVI input.
CONNECTIVITY FOR OLDER MONITORS
This compact adapter features a female DVI connector which allows you to attach it to an existing DVI cable that can stay firmly screwed in to the back of your monitor. It also ensures that your existing monitors or projectors won't need to be upgraded to DisplayPort-compatible models. The DisplayPort to DVI Adapter supports PC resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 pixels and HDTV resolutions up to 1080p.
BACKWARD-COMPATIBLE DISPLAYPORT TECHNOLOGY
Developed to be the next-generation personal computer display interface, DisplayPort cables let you enjoy your media with extreme refresh rates, intense color depths and the highest resolution possible. This scalable technology was designed to grow with evolving A/V innovations while staying compatible with existing formats like VGA, DVI, and HDMI.
This DisplayPort to DVI Adapter doesn't require any software or additional driver installation to display a DisplayPort-enabled device on a DVI monitor. Once connected, the adapter will automatically convert the digital DisplayPort signal to analog DVI and display instantly on your DVI monitor at maximum resolution.
