The Dual Link DVI-to-Mini-DisplayPort Converter from Gefen works with all Mac and PC computers with a mini-DisplayPort. Using dual link DVI graphics, the Dual Link DVI-to-Mini-DisplayPort Converter supports resolutions up to 2560x1600.

It's designed as a Plug-n-Play solution for viewing DVI video using the Mini DisplayPort interface with audio support. The Dual Link DVI-to-Mini-DisplayPort Converter can also be used with displays using standard DisplayPort connections with a passive Mini-DisplayPort-to-DisplayPort cable.

Audio support is provided through the built-in 3.5mm audio jack. The audio output is fed through the Mini-DisplayPort connector on the unit. An EDID switch button is provided for manually selecting the three EDID modes: 2560x1600, 2560x1440, or pass-through. The unit is powered using the included USB cable.

Advanced Extended Display Identification Data (EDID)
The Dual Link DVI-to-Mini-DisplayPort Converter comes equipped with advanced EDID management features, such as the EDID switch located on the front panel. It can be used to switch seamlessly between three different modes: 2560x1600, 2560x1440, or pass-through
Audio Conversion
Audio input is handled by a 3.5mm (1/8") audio jack. Both the DVI video signal and the audio signal are converted by the Dual Link DVI-to-Mini-DisplayPort Converter and relayed through the mini-DisplayPort. Since the mini-DisplayPort handles both video and audio signals (just like its HDMI counterpart), there's no need for a separate audio connector from the converter to the display receiving the signal
Supported Resolutions
The Dual Link DVI-to-Mini-DisplayPort Converter supports resolutions up to 2560x1600. Also, the included EDID button can switch to 2560x1440, which is the native resolution of Apple 27" iMacs and Apple 27" LED Cinema Displays
USB-Powered
The Dual Link DVI-to-Mini-DisplayPort Converter is powered through a USB cable so it doesn't take up extra space on the electrical outlet

    By John C

      Comments about Gefen Dual Link DVI-to-Mini-DisplayPort Converter:

      I use both Apple & PC computers, I have a 24" Apple monitor that I used for business presentations on occasion. With all the Pico / Portable projectors available I was able to lighten my travel load, but what do I do with my Apple monitor? This Link DVI allowed me to connect my 24" Apple monitor to my Windows PC and it works great. Gave away my old 24" Gateway monitor. I'm very happy with the purchase. B&H was great in helping me find the right solution. Thanks guys! PS - I'm a CFP and not in sales for B&H or or this company. I write this only because I never write review and discount most of them.

      Purpose: connect the 27" Apple LED Cinema Display to my PC
      Pros: easy to use, connects to my PC for power, small form factor that hides itself well
      Cons: does not come with all the cables necessary, the blue LEDs can be annoying if you have to stare at them incessantly.
