DisplayPort Adapters Fix all your High Def Problems

Jan 26, 2012

The world of monitors is constantly improving. One way to stay up is to get the monitors that are better than the most popular and really high performing, like DisplayPort monitors. If you have a DisplayPort monitor for your computer you already know about the rich visual experience, crystal clear and the one clear downside, the DisplayPort… port. While it’s ideal for your computer, the monitor is actually pretty usable for other media devices and applications with the right DisplayPort adapters.

Once you hook up your DisplayPort to say, your DVD player, you’ll love the look on your DisplayPort monitor. So what other uses can you get out of your Display Port?

Get the most use with multi-media use

  • Connect to a gaming system, media player, or any other HDMI output with the DisplayPort to HDMI adapter. You can play your video games, watch movies or view television all from the same monitor you work on. For homes, this reduces the space taken up by various monitors and screens, and at the office this allows you to perform multiple media presentations.
  • You can also use a DisplayPort to VGA adapter to connect to computers using the more typical VGA connection.

Have you considered the DisplayPort monitors or have one? How do you like it?

When hooking up a new television or other electronic device did you find yourself using color coding plugs and cables to match their jacks in your new electronic device? These colorful cables just so happen to be extremely important to the functionality of your favorite electronics. From televisions to high tech digital cameras, color coded cables make everything easier and give you the connections you need!

Many cables are color coded to make installation easy, but the ones we’re going to talk about today are called RCA composite cables. They are those three-headed cables with colored heads that match to the colored jacks in the back of your device. You may not realize what these three little plugs do for your device so let us explain for you.

The yellow plug is for composite video. Red is for the right channel of audio. Lastly the black or white cable is used for the left audio channel. Together they give you a clear picture and crystal clear audio surround sound.

RCA video cables are another type of color coded cable that are most commonly used for DVD players, high red TVs, computer monitors, plasma displays, etc.
Look out for these colored jacks on the items such as:

  • Televisions
  • Game Systems
  • Stereos
  • DVD Players
  • Camcorders
  • Digital Cameras

Next time you’re hooking up an electronic device with RCA cables you too can show off your knowledge of those three colors!
