AmazonBasics HDMI to DVI Adapter Cable (Latest Standard)
Enhance your gaming or home-theater system with this AmazonBasics HDMI to DVI adapter cable. Because it’s backwards compatible with DVI-D and DVI-I signals, the cable can be used to connect your computer or DVI-equipped device to an HDMI-equipped HDTV or display. Watch videos from your laptop on your large-screen HDTV–or the other way around. The cable will even connect HDMI-equipped devices like Blu-Ray, PlayStation 3, or Xbox 360 to a DVI-equipped monitor or TV. Other than not supporting audio, the HDMI to DVI adapter cable functions just like a high-speed HDMI cable, making it easy to enjoy serious gaming, home-theater entertainment, and more.
The cable’s extra mesh jacket offers an additional layer of protection and increased cut resistance to the regular cable jacket and ultimately to the inner cable. The CL2-rated cable meets fire safety codes, so it’s safe to use in or through the walls of a residential home.
Cable Length: 15 Feet (4.57 Meters)
HDMI to DVI for Quality Video Transmission
The industry standard for transmitting uncompressed digital data, High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) provides video, especially at high resolutions, and renders small, high-contrast details, such as text, in high quality. HDMI cables are used with a variety of everyday electronic components, including computers and home-theater screens. Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a video-interface standard that provides quality transmissions on digital display devices such as flat-panel LCD computer displays and digital projectors.
By connecting HDMI to DVI with the AmazonBasics adapter cable, you get an impressively enhanced video experience on your compatible device. The AmazonBasics HDMI to DVI adapter cable meets the latest HDMI standard, which means it considerably expands bandwidth up to 18 Gbps, offers 4K at 50/60 (2160p) video resolution (four times more clarity than 1080p/60), and supports the wide-angle theatrical 21:9 video aspect ratio.
The DVI connector of the cable is not fitted for audio capability, however, so audio will need to be transmitted through a separate audio cable or through a fiber-optic (Toslink) cable.
Gold-Plated Connectors for Superior Conductivity
The AmazonBasics cable delivers a superior signal thanks to its durable PVC outer layer, shielding, and corrosion-resistant gold-plated connectors (HDMI A Male to DVI 24+1 Male). To ensure compatibility, check your component product manuals to determine the required connections types.
