Atlona AT-HD620 HDMI to Mini DisplayPort Converter Preview
Atlona Technologies today announced that the company is now shipping its AT-HD620 HDMI to Mini DisplayPort converter, which is capable of up-converting video signals to dual-link resolutions up to 2560x1440. 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 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. 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."
- Joshua Carlson, director of public relations, Atlona Technologies
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 2560x1440. Support for 3D motion video adaptive deinterlacing allows for the best possible image, while providing less than a single frame delay.
The AT-HD620 is available at an MSRP of $279.
