TeleAdapt Gives Mac Users Missing Link to HDTV
February 28, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsWatford, UK - TeleAdapt, the global leader in connectivity technology, announces the immediate availability of their new Mini DisplayPort + USB Audio to HDMI Adapter, providing the necessary link for Apple® computer users to mirror their laptop screen, or enjoy iTunes movies and other high definition AV content stored on their computer through an HDTV.
TeleAdapt helps solve one of MacBook's biggest monitor compatibility frustrations – how to display audio and video from a MacBook to a larger HDTV using one connection. With this new adapter, MacBook users can move the digital video and stereo audio signals from their laptop through HDMI for viewing on larger HDTV screens found in many homes, and hotel rooms, today.
Mini DisplayPort is Apple's current standard digital video output interface, commonly found on new generation MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air computers. Currently, any newer generation MacBook user storing iTunes movies or other high definition content on their laptops cannot enjoy those movies on a big screen without using multiple cable connections, oftentimes compromising image quality to standard definition.
TeleAdapt's new Mini DisplayPort + USB Audio to HDMI adapter simplifies connectivity by converting the Mini DisplayPort video signal into an HDMI signal, a high definition connection common among HDCP-compliant flat panel HDTVs.
Mini DisplayPort transmits a video-only signal, another common frustration among MacBook users who want to watch their iTunes movies and other high definition content on their big screen TVs. The analog stereo audio captured through TeleAdapt's USB connection makes this adapter a must-have for anyone interested in playing both audio and video on a big-screen TV directly from their Apple computer, using one cable connection.

- Input Video Signal: Mini DisplayPort via Male 20 pin
- Input Audio Signal: 2CH LPCM via USB 2.0 A Type Male
