VisionTek Active DisplayPort™ to Dual Link DVI converter is a new generation DisplayPort™ to Active Dual Link DVI converter that receives both video and audio streams from an upstream DisplayPort Source link and converts to a Dual Link DVI output. The DisplayPort to DVI-D Dual-Link adapter lets you connect your DisplayPort video source (Macbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, etc.) to any DVI-D display, eliminating the expense of having to upgrade to a DisplayPort-capable monitor. The DisplayPort adapter offers an active conversion and easy connectivity directly without any external power input and is able to handle full dual-link resolutions (up to 2560x1440). Use it to mirror your display to another monitor, or extend your desktop to increase your workspace.
