The 1163 HDMI 'A' to DVI-D video cable is for DVD and Blu-Ray players, computers, flat-panel LCD monitors, and HDTV television displays. It seamlessly converts a standard DVI-D digital input/output to an HDMI output/input, working in either direction to complete your video setup and provide the maximum quality of your high-def digital picture.
The HDMI interface is the dominant format in digital multimedia, designed to provide bi-directional communication between devices and displays, and is primarily found in consumer electronics products like DVD and Blu-Ray players, set-top cable boxes, video streaming boxes, and HDTV sets. In the computer sphere, DVI is still
the number one player, and is found on most every desktop computer and flatscreen monitor.
DataPro's HDMI to DVI cable has connectors of type HDMI 'A' and DVI-D, and will function both as an HDMI-to-DVI and as a DVI-to-HDMI. The digital signals are inherently compatible, so no active components are necessary. If you have a recent video card (GeForce 400 series, Radeon HD4000 series, Intel HD 2000, or newer) the DVI output signal will also contain audio! Computers with older video cards will need to send the audio separately.
The DVI-D connector is a single-link plug, because HDMI does not currently support dual-link resolutions.
