StarTech HDMI2VGA HDMI to VGA Converter with Audio HD to VGA Monitor
Old Tech, New Tech
HDMI is amazing. There’s a reason it’s quickly becoming the go-to format for everything, including computers and gaming consoles. It’s an easy high-definition signal with audio built right in- a veritable one-stop-shop for all of your entertainment needs! The snag comes when you want to utilize an older monitor or projector. Too often, a perfectly good VGA monitor will sit collecting dust just because it doesn’t have the right connection. Don’t neglect your lonely screens any longer! The StarTech HDMI2VGA is a plug-and-play solution for converting HDMI to VGA video and 3.5mm audio. It also comes with a VGA to component adapter and selector switch. As talented as it is, it cannot go backwards so be sure to confirm that HDMI to VGA is the direction you need to convert.
With the simplest set-up, the HDMI2VGA HDMI to VGA Converter takes only seconds to install. All you need are a set of cables and an electrical outlet. A power source is necessary for this converter to work. An indicator light lets you know when you are all ready to go. Its small, compact size means you can hide it out of sight and out of the way. This converter includes an audio output which makes it a handy solution for business or pleasure. The HDMI2VGA also comes with the safety of a 2-year warranty to ensure you stay happy and connected.
Vanco 280573 HDMI Audio Extractor
Split the Difference
When it comes to home theater equipment, we all want to hold onto what we’ve got. Receivers especially are built to last. HDMI has taken over the world of audio-video technology, but any receiver purchased before 2003- and some purchased much later- do not have any way to connect to HDMI. That doesn’t mean you should have to buy expensive replacements or tolerate analog video. If your devices don’t have a separate audio output, the only way to separate the audio from an HDMI cable is by using a converting device like Vanco’s 280573 HDMI Audio Extractor.
This HDMI Audio Extractor accepts a single HDMI in. The video is carried along to the HDMI which you would then plug straight into your television. For the audio out, you have several options. For digitally compatible receivers, there is an optical and a digital coax slot. 3.5mm is the analog output, which can be changed to left and right RCA with a small, simple adapter. There are buttons on the side to change the output to either 5.1 for the digital options or 2-channel for analog.
The HDMI output on the 280573 audio extractor is fully HDCP compliant and leaves all high-resolution and 3D features intact. Set-up is simple and the small size means you can neatly hide it. All you need are the cables and an available outlet. The provided 5v power supply must be plugged in for this device to properly convert your signal. This audio extractor isn’t exclusively for use with older receivers! It can be used with an endless list of cable boxes, Blu-ray players, computers, and more.
