The DisplayPort to VGA Active Converter Cable (4.5 meters), model DP2VGAMM15B, allows a DisplayPort-equipped desktop or laptop computer to be connected directly to a VGA monitor or projector at a longer distance than a standard-length cable allows. which avoids having to buy additional adapters.
In addition, since the converter cable supports video resolutions up to 1920×1200, it is possible to convert a DisplayPort video source to VGA without deteriorating the video quality.
The DP2VGAMM15B adapter is backed by StarTech.com’s three-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
