Adapters preserve the legacy display investment
Sometimes the introduction and then proliferation of new technology wares yields angst for the budget-conscious consumer or DoD department heads looking to stretch defense dollars as far as they can. While Mini DisplayPort and DisplayPort rapidly become the de facto display-to-computer interfaces in new mobile laptop or desktop computers, many already-owned-and-paid-for displays and monitors only support older video connections including VGA, HDMI, or DVI. However, StarTech.com’s Mini DisplayPort adapters link old and new – and eliminate the need to purchase a new monitor or display. Sounds perfect for a military command and control center looking to next year’s budget and tightening the monetary belt in the meantime.
And the investment-preserving adapters provide many notables. Among them: Mini DisplayPort adapters offer display resolutions up to 1920 x 1200, and are software-free for easy implementation. In addition, HDTV support renders resolutions up to 1080p. And the plug-and-play Mac- and PC-compatible adapters are available in three variants: Mini DisplayPort to DVI, Mini DisplayPort to HDMI, and Mini DisplayPort to VGA.
