Startech, the makers of almost every connectable under the sun have announced a new USB3.0 to 4K Ultra HD Video adapter, two of them to be precise. One features a HDMI and the other a Display Port connection.
Both will allow the connection of an additional monitor to your machine even if your machine does not have a dedicated card making it a solid upgrade for those of you with compact machines, and are looking for an easy way to increase productivity. Both parts are fully plug and play as well which should mean no headaches.
Northampton, UK – September 25, 2014 – StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts, has announced the release of two Ultra HD 4K USB 3.0 Video Adapters, including a USB 3.0 to DisplayPort 1.2 4K Video Adapter (SKU: USB32DP4K) and a USB 3.0 to HDMI 4K Video Adapter (SKU: USB32HD4K). The new adapters enable users to connect their USB 3.0-equipped laptop or desktop computer to a 4K television, display or projector, even if the computer does not natively support 4K video.
The adapters feature a chipset that offers a true plug-and-play experience. When connected to a host computer, the adapters will automatically verify that the newest drivers are installed and if necessary download the most recent versions and prompt users to update.
“4K displays are becoming more readily available in the market, but not everyone has a powerful enough laptop, Ultrabook or desktop video card to drive a 4K monitor” said John Mardinly, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com’s line of USB Video Adapters. “Our USB 3.0 to 4K adapters let you take advantage of resolutions supported by Ultra HD displays for applications that require an added level of graphical clarity and detail, such as photo editing, graphic design and multimedia creation”.
