Adapters preserve the legacy display investment

Sometimes the introduction and then proliferation of new technology wares yields angst for the budget-conscious consumer or DoD department heads looking to stretch defense dollars as far as they can.

Sometimes the introduction and then proliferation of new technology wares yields angst for the budget-conscious consumer or DoD department heads looking to stretch defense dollars as far as they can. While Mini DisplayPort and DisplayPort rapidly become the de facto display-to-computer interfaces in new mobile laptop or desktop computers, many already-owned-and-paid-for displays and monitors only support older video connections including VGA, HDMI, or DVI. However, StarTech.com’s Mini DisplayPort adapters link old and new – and eliminate the need to purchase a new monitor or display. Sounds perfect for a military command and control center looking to next year’s budget and tightening the monetary belt in the meantime.

And the investment-preserving adapters provide many notables. Among them: Mini DisplayPort adapters offer display resolutions up to 1920 x 1200, and are software-free for easy implementation. In addition, HDTV support renders resolutions up to 1080p. And the plug-and-play Mac- and PC-compatible adapters are available in three variants: Mini DisplayPort to DVI, Mini DisplayPort to HDMI, and Mini DisplayPort to VGA.
