Northampton, UK – StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts has announced the release of the USB to HDMI Adapter (USB2HDMI) - a convenient multi-monitor solution that enables users to connect an HDMI®-capable display to a Windows® or Mac®-based laptop or desktop computer, through a USB 2.0 port.

The adapter is a cost-effective solution for adding a secondary monitor or several monitors (using multiple adapters), without having to update the computer video card, or even open the computer case. The adapter offers practical, scalable technology that could be utilized in many environments, including business and home applications. As a solution for enterprise or SOHO business users, the adapter makes it easy to add multi-monitor configurations for the sake of improved employee productivity, while home-users/end-users could benefit from the adapter’s use as a cost effective way to connect their home computer to an HDTV, for watching videos, viewing photos, or simply using the Internet.

“We discovered that people were looking for an easier way to output video and audio from their non-HDMI enabled computers to an HDMI display” said John Mardinly, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com. “As is the case with many of our other USB adapters we offer, this adapter allows older computers to be used with today’s cutting-edge technology.”

The USB to HDMI Adapter offers the following features:

Support for 1080p display resolutions (1920 x 1080), 720p video playback recommended

USB-powered – the adapter draws power from the host USB connection, with no need for an additional power supply/adapter

Supports the Windows Aero® interface in Windows Vista and Windows 7

Supports 2-channel (stereo) audio

The USB to HDMI Adapter (SKU: USB2HDMI), is available from leading resellers including Misco, Insight and Amazon and is distributed by Ingram Micro, EntaTech and Micro-P. MSRP for this product is £83.99 GBP exc. VAT.
