This adapter converts DVI Male to an HDMI Male connector. Gold Plated.
Note: DVI does NOT support digital audio. Thus, when using this adaptor to convert from an existing DVI cable to an HDMI cable, there is no audio to be converted. Thus, the audio pins in the HDMI adapter are terminated.
Important Note about Resistance: Due to the added resistance introduced when an HDMI switch, connector, adapter, wall-plate, or splitter is used, we recommend the use of THICKER (higher gauge) HDMI cables.� Our HDMI Extreme cables that are 24 AWG cables (compared to our regular 28 AWG cables) are are ideal for use with these HDMI devices.
