USB-C to HDMI Adapter Compatibility
As USB-C becomes more prominent on electronics, the need to adapt USB-C to HDMI affects more and more installations.
TechLogix SMPC Presentation Cables and adapter rings feature two different USB-C to HDMI adapters:
- Apple™ Certified / MFI compliant adapters
- Generic adapters
Apple™ Certified adapters are designed specifically for Apple™ products, such as phones, tablets and computers.
Generic adapters are designed for non-Apple products that use Alternate Mode for DisplayPort (commonly known as ALT-DP or ALT mode). It's important to verify your device supports ALT-DP mode for proper operation. If your device doesn't support ALT-DP mode, it likely supports a chipset that's compatible with the Apple™ Certified adapter.
While a bit confusing and potentially frustrating, ALT-DP mode is an important development in signal transport. It allows a USB-C equipped computer to connect directly to a display or monitor. It also is part of a specification that greatly increases the power compatibility of electronic devices.
