DisplayPort is the latest and most advanced digital A/V transport technology, specifically developed for the IT industry. It has been designed to replace VGA as the standard means of sending high definition digital audio and video from a computer to a display. The simplified construction and plug-and-play design of the DisplayPort interface provides ease of use and lower costs since one cable can be used to carry both analog and digital audio/video. Mini DisplayPort is a miniaturized version of DisplayPort and is widely used on all Apple Mac computers and displays.
The Gefen Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Adapter is designed to interface a workstation using a full-size DisplayPort output to an Apple Cinema Display. It can also interface an Apple Mac computer with an MDP output to a non-Apple monitor with full-size DisplayPort interface.
