Plug and Play Solution Bridges New and Legacy Equipment in the Classroom with One Quick Connection

PHILADELPHIA, June 29, 2015 (ISTE Booth No. 620) – Belkin®, a trusted leader of technology solutions for office, classroom, IT infrastructure, and mobile environments, today announced today announced availability of its new Universal HDMI to VGA Adapter Kit with Audio, the only branded, multi-purpose adapter kit that gives existing legacy equipment complete compatibility with new digital devices.

Today's classroom is a mixed technology environment comprised of legacy VGA equipment, (e.g., old projectors, early-generation interactive whiteboards) and new HDMI-enabled devices, (e.g., iPads, Apple TV, Chromebooks). Budget constraints can restrict the purchase of new equipment forcing educators to use what the school currently has available. There is no easy way to integrate existing equipment with new devices creating a disconnect that hinders collaboration in the classroom.

Belkin's new adapter kit converts digital HDMI video signals into an analog signal plus audio output required by the existing VGA-dominant school infrastructures. Key features of the Universal HDMI to VGA Adapter Kit with Audio include:

  • All Inclusive. HDMI-f to VGA-f Adapter, HDMI-m to HMDI-m converter, 3.5 mm audio cable —1 M, and "anyone can install" instructions.
  • Plug and Play. No drivers, software or external power adapters needed.
  • Tried and Trusted. Tested in USA-based labs and FCC and CE certified.
  • Complete Compatibility. Supports Apple TV, Chromecast, Chromebook with HDMI, Rasberry Pi, HDMI laptops, and other HDMI output devices.
