Latest Kanex™ Mini DisplayPort Adapter Now Supports Full HD Digital Audio Video
Brea, CA (PR WEB) October 8, 2009 – Apogee Inc is releasing the latest addition to the current line of Kanex™ Mini DisplayPort adapters. The new the Kanex™ Mini DisplayPort with Digital Audio to HDMI adapter is now available and compatible for Apple® MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac Mini, and iMac.
Compared to other adapters out in the market, the Kanex™ Mini DisplayPort with Digital Audio to HDMI adapter is the first and by far the most advanced adapter with the ability to provide clear high quality digital audio and video through the use of the Apple® minijack. The Kanex™ Mini DisplayPort with Digital Audio to HDMI adapter features a USB 2.0 input able to supply power to the adapter.
It also supports HDMI 165 MHz, 1.65Gbps per channel, and like the first generation adapter, it supports HDMI resolutions of up to 1080p and 8 bit per channel. The Kanex™ Mini DisplayPort with Digital Audio to HDMI adapter is also able to support uncompressed audio such as LPCM, but can also support compressed audio DTS Digital such as DTS-HD and Dolby True HD formats.
Previously, Mac users had two options when it came to obtaining audio from their MacBooks. One option was to use the 3.5mm audio jack to RCA which produced only analog audio. A second option was to use the headphone port, which is also the Apple® minijack, and then output audio to their HDTV through Toslink. With the new Kanex™ Mini DisplayPort with Digital Audio to HDMI adapter, Mac users will no longer be faced with the inefficient use of two to three cable connections to their adapters.
It was the consideration of the headphone port capability that the Apogee Inc. R&D team was able to produce this all in one adapter solution by utilizing the Apple® minijack that is currently available on the latest MacBook models. By simply connecting the Kanex™ Mini DisplayPort with Digital Audio to HDMI adapter to a Mini DisplayPort and Apple® minijack, users are now able to connect to their HDTV models and get the high digital quality home theater experience they want.
