The Atlona PC / Laptop to HDMI Converter, with a built-in scaler, is designed to upscale a PC input source to provide digital HDMI output. Input resolutions up to WUXGA and HD up to 1080p are supported by the converter. With stereo LPCM analog/digital audio input/output, it converts digital/analog audio signal to digital/analog format and embeds the audio on the HDMI signal, while maintaining sync for an error-free display.

Upon selection of the Native output, the PC / Laptop to HDMI Converter automatically detects the factory setting of the connected display providing appropriate resolution and refresh rates. It offers adjustment for parameters like contrast, brightness, hue, saturation, sharpness, RGB (color tone) level, and aspect ratio size for a high quality display of images.

Featuring a comprehensive OSD menu, the PC / Laptop to HDMI Converter enables you to select a variety of output resolution and various parameters for a high quality video output. The audio input source in the OSD menu allows you to output the audio to HDMI, TOSLink, and phone jack simultaneously. It goes into standby mode when no input signal is received for 15 min, and saves power by terminating the connection with the display. In addition, the converter is compliant with HDMI 1.2, HDCP 1.1, and DVI 1.0 standards.

      I use the converter to play movies on a big screen TV through my laptop. Worked as described right out of the box. 10 minutes later and I was watching a movie. I have my movie collection backed up to an external hard drive and I wanted to be able to watch movies with out using the original DVD. It does this flawlessly. The manual is a bit thin. The description of how to activate the VGA port on my laptop id not work for my HP but I was able to easily do that by going into the control panel. ...... The only additional item needed was an HDMI cable. Price and service from B & H were outstanding- as expected.

      Works great! Exactly what was needed. Had to replace a dead TV. The new one is HD and has only HDMI input. Still needed to use the aging but not dead yet computer. Now I am the hero instead of the goat.

          Comments about Atlona PC / Laptop to HDMI Converter:

          I was so excited to find that this product exists. It has become the perfect addition to my company's camera switchers. Now we can incorporate VGA-computer outputs at any resolution to our multi-camera 1080p productions. It used to be a huge problem when we would get source material in 1024x768, but now it's as simple as plugging in the Atlona Converter and scaling on its very intuitive menu system. The product worked great right out of the box with almost no learning curve or experimenting.

          I would recommend this to anybody! Fantastic product!

              This was purchased to convert a standard VGA signal to be compatible with a Blackmagic Atem 1m/e. On the ATEM all the inputs have to be exactly the same resolution. Plugged in the Atlona and in automatically detected that Atem's 1080i native resolution.
              The conversion looks great. No ghosting or weird artifacts. If you need to get your vga signal upscaled to 1080i this is an excellent option.

                I use this product to watch movies on a large screen TV. I have digital backups of my movies on an external hard drive and this device lets me play movies through my laptop without using the original DVD. Easy to setup. Had a movie playing in 10 minutes. The manual is a bit skimpy. The instructions on how to enable the VGA output did not apply to my HP laptop but I was able to do this easily through the control panel. The "in the box" didn't list a VGA cable but it does come with one. The only thing I needed was an HDMI cable.

                  Love this product! Needed to get a feed from our projection computer to our video switcher and this did the trick. Tried multiple scaler switchers and all of them had scan problems or just wouldn't work. This one worked right out of the box without having to change any of the many available settings which really surprised me. We're going from a vga out from a mac (running bootcamp) to a kanex pro vga over cat5 4channel distributor running to a BlackMagicDesign 4k switcher. This unit converted the VGA signal for the blackmagic switcher no problem.

                  Very happy with the product which finally solved many problems which I was having.

                    We often video training sessions that include PowerPoint and software demos from the presenters laptop. We have been searching for a way to record the screen image without installing software on the presenters laptop. This device, attached to an Atmos Ninja does the job beautifully, and results in a perfect hi- res Apple 422 .mov file that we can drop right into the Final Cut project along with the live shot of the presenter, and a cutaway cam of the audience.

                    Used this as a VGA up-scaler for a BlackMagic ATEM live production setup - worked great (after I updated the ATEM firmware!); big cost-saving over a full-fledged scaler (as long as you're just trying to get VGA in and not another broadcast signal).
