USB to HDMI converterWe know the feeling: You just spent six months backpacking the Annapurna trek in Nepal. You have 9,000 photos on your computer and firm intentions to show every last one of them to your buddies. But doing so on 12-inch computer monitor screen wouldn’t do them justice, nor would that weak, low-definition projector you found to plug into your USB port. You’ve got a state-of-the art HDTV 10 feet away, but no way to get the photos to show up on it.

We’re here to help. Check out our new USB to HDMI converter.

Basically, this product can convert (as you might guess) any USB port on your PC into an HDMI port without requiring any kind of special technical knowledge. All you have to do is plug it in, connect your HDMI cable and device, and start enjoying your high-definition content. It’s incredibly easy.

The applications of this converter are endless. Just think of all the computer-based content you’d rather view on an HDTV:

  • Watch online videos, shows and movies on a larger, high-definition screen.
  • Work at home or in the office more comfortably without straining your eyes.
  • Project presentations onto a larger screen with high-quality picture.

Because our USB to HDMI converters are compatible with HDTVs, projectors and CRT or LCD monitors, you can use it in virtually every scenario – whether it’s impressing the boss at work with your high-tech slideshow or enjoying a relaxing movie at home. It’s easy to install and is powered by the USB itself, so no extra power adapters or equipment are needed. It’s also capable of mirroring or extending your computer’s display, and it supports both standard and wide-screen pictures.

If you find yourself needing to swap your computer display for an HDTV display, call our AV distribution or USB distribution experts today. We also offer a variety of coaxial, networking and cable management solutions.

Tired of your printer taking forever to pick up a job? Save yourself the time and frustration of waiting on slow connections with our new USB 2.0 Over CAT5E/CAT6 Active Extender Sets. They will not only improve your computer experience, but they’ll do it more cheaply and efficiently — saving you money all the while.

The active extender sets basically give you a way to extend the transmission distance from your USB device by 330 feet while retaining high-definition and high-speed transmission signals — all with a single CAT5E/CAT6 cable. These sets support full-speed or low-speed USB devices up to 480 Mbps USB 2.0 specifications, and are compatible with Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 2003 and 2008 operating systems (although please note: this product is not compatible with Mac computers).

In other words, this extension system allows high-speed data transmission from your USB device to peripheral devices (like printers or scanners) through common CAT5E and CAT6 cables, which are relatively cheap and capable of maintaining high performance quality over long distances. Thanks to smaller cable size and end connectors, CAT5E and CAT6 cables are not only cheaper, but they’re also easier to install than bulkier cable types.

So think of all the ways these extender sets can help save you time and energy:

  • Quicker printing without loss in signal or performance
  • Faster processing time for scanned documents
  • Increased distance between devices gives you greater mobility
  • Flexibility from compatibility with a variety of devices

If you’re looking for superior performance over long distances, our USB 2.0 Over CAT5E/CAT6 Active Extender Sets are the best choice for you. Here are a few more things you should know about them:

  • Include recommended 1 foot USB cable for transmitter side
  • Software driver and AC/DC 5V 2A power adapter come with it
  • Ideal for USB peripheral extension, industrial control, security and digital signage
  • Fully compliant with USB 2.0 specification and compatible with USB hubs
