Simple Plug and Play solution
The Kanex C247d converts DVI into Mini DisplayPort so that you can use your PC or Mac system with the 24-inch and 27-inch Apple Cinema Display. The C247d converts a DVI signal into the Mini DisplayPort signal that is required by Apple's Cinema Displays. DVI users can now use the beautiful backlit-LED Cinema Displays as their main display or as their extended desktop. The C247d also features audio pass-through via the USB port resulting in a complete multimedia experience. Power is also supported via the USB port eliminating the need for a bulky external power supply.
This adapter is perfect for those who want to use the latest in Apple's display technology yet have the DVI interface. Most Apple systems use either mini-DVI or Mini DisplayPort connectors while most other PCs use DVI as their display connectors. The C247d provides an easy and effective solution in connecting DVI to Mini DisplayPort.
PC meets Apple LED Cinema Display
Since the majority of PCs out there are equipped with the DVI interface, it has been difficult combining PCs and the Apple LED Cinema Displays. The C247d; however, provides a simple yet effective solution by giving PC users the ability to use Apple's great Cinema Displays.
Have you heard?
Since DVI does not support audio, the C247d transfers audio via the USB port. Take advantage of the built in speakers of the Apple LED Cinema Displays. Now you can watch and listen to your favorite movies, listen to your favorite songs, or videoconference from your system. The USB port both powers the unit and provides audio pass-through freeing up valuable USB slots.
Designed exclusively for use with Apple's LED Cinema Displays
The C247d was designed exclusively with the 24-inch and 27-inch Apple LED Cinema Displays in mind. With a cable length of approximately 11.8 inches the adapter effectively lengthens the reach of your Cinema Display.
Blast for your past Macs
The C247d actively converts a DVI signal to a Mini DisplayPort signal. Now you can connect your 2006 – early 2008 MacBook Pros, 2005 – mid 2007 Mac minis, and 2006-2010 Mac Pros that have DVI to the 24-inch and 27-inch Apple LED Cinema Displays with Mini DisplayPort input.
