Please note that due to technical limitations, this coupler does not transmit power, which is necessary for some display adapters (but will work fine with monitors). To extend a DisplayPort source port with power, we recommend a DisplayPort Extension Cable
The easiest way to build DisplayPort into your world is with this handy
female-to-female panel-mount coupler. The dual female ports will splice two
normal DisplayPort cables, and the panelmounting shell will mount directly
to an enclosure or wall panel.
This type of coupler is often featured in home theater installations and other
professional-type setups where video sources and displays are separated. It's
also quite convenient as an interchangable part in an OEM rig, where repeated
insertions might wear on the mounted port and an easily-replacable coupler is
preferrable to a complicated retermination.
For best signal quality in a plate-to-plate run, we recommend using
one of our
DisplayPort panel-mount cables with this coupler rather than two
couplers. This type of setup would have one less interconnect, which helps
prevent signal degredation.
DisplayPort is a relatively
new standard in computer audio/video connectivity, offering resolutions up
to 2560x1600 (for 30-inch displays) with uncompressed 5.1 or 7.1 audio in a
If you are connecting an HDTV, DVD player, or Blu-ray player, you are
probably using HDMI, which looks
similar to DisplayPort. We have a full line of
HDMI products available, including
an HDMI panel-mount
