Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter with Audio Support

Apogee has announced the release of its Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter with USB digital audio. The new adapter joins their Kanex family of Mini DisplayPort adapters and allows Macs with a Mini DisplayPort to be connected to an HD source and have digital audio be outputted through the adapter.

Since HDMI is able to support both audio and video, users wondered why it wasn't possible to have the option of having audio come out the Mini DisplayPort adapter as well. The new adapters will be able to output digital audio signals through the USB port. USB audio was integrated into the adapter with HDMI output to allow the audio pass through. Two USB 2.0 ports are also conveniently located next to the Mini DisplayPort, which allows easy access to plug both cables in.

The new adapter still has the same specifications as its predecessor as it still will be version 1.3b and support resolutions of up to 1080p. The adapter also looks similar to the current Mini DisplayPort to HDMI. The significant difference for the adapter will be the extra USB cable next to the Mini DisplayPort cable. The new adapter also supports uncompressed audio such as LPCM.


Apogee said it plans to release the Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter with USB digital audio in August. No word on pricing, but we'll keep you posted.
