Atlona Technologies will release the AT-DP200 DVI to Mini DisplayPort converter, which is designed to allow the use of new Mini-DisplayPort enabled monitors on DVI machines.
DVI does not put out a DisplayPort signal, making it incompatible with new displays offered by manufacturers such as Apple, Dell, and CinemaView. There are many products on the market that allow a conversion from Mini DisplayPort to DVI, but Atlona’s is the only product that allows the opposite conversion, according to the company.
The AT-DP200 makes the conversion possible by inputing the DVI signal and outputting the MiniDisplayPort signal while passing along all EDID and HDCP information. This is all while allowing a computer to scale to the optimal resolution offered by the video display, including 1920 x 1200 or 1280 x 800.
The device also allows use of any Mini DisplayPort product with a DVI graphics card, meaning that even the new 24-inch Cinema Displays from Apple can be made compatible with all Apple computers equipped with a DVI port, including legacy Macs.
