Atlona Technologies is now shipping its AT-HD620 HDMI to Mini DisplayPort converter, which the company says is capable of up-converting video signals to dual-link resolutions up to 2560×1440.
For HDMI users, the unit solves compatibility issues with Mini DisplayPort displays, such as Apple iMac 27-inch or 24-inch monitors, by scaling any HDMI input to match their native resolution.
The AT-HD620 features an HDCP-compliant HDMI input, in addition to a Mini DisplayPort input that functions as a pass-through for Mini DisplayPort sources. The unit allows users to switch between the two inputs, enabling them to use both a connected Mini DisplayPort computer such as a MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, or Mac mini, as well as an HDMI source such as a PlayStation PS3, Apple TV, or Xbox 360.
The converter scales any resolution, including 1080p, to dual-link resolutions up to 2560×1440. Support for 3D motion video adaptive deinterlacing allows for the best possible image, while providing less than a single frame delay.
“The AT-HD620 caused quite a stir when it was first unveiled, and we are very excited to say that it is now available to our discerning customers,” said Joshua Carlson, director of public relations, Atlona Technologies. “The AT-HD620 fills a gap in multiple applications, from boardrooms to video editing. Until now, a product designed to allow HDMI users to utilize the full dual-link resolution capabilities of Mini DisplayPort displays had been missing. We are happy to provide it.”
The AT-HD620 is available at an MSRP of $279.
