Who Needs ADC? Converter Helps Bring Cinema Display To The Masses

Gefen has released a new DVI to ADC video converter allowing owners of older Macs to use the new Apple monitors equipped with Appleis ADC connector. The ADC connector carries power, the video signal, and USB signals from the computer to the monitor through one simple plug. According to Gefen:

To those who thought that life with Appleis Display Cinema monitor couldnit get any better, it just got a little brighter. With Gefenis DVI to ADC Converter Box, you no longer have to scrap those classic Macintosh models-just plug them into the box, then connect them to the monitor. Itis as simple as that.

The boxes, which come with 6-foot DVI cable, 6-foot USB cable and a 208W 28V power supply, provide three main solutions:

  1. To enable older G4 computers with DVI connections to connect to the 15 and 22-inch Apple Displays with ADC connections
  2. To facilitate the addition of a second LCD display with ADC connections using a PCI slot with the ATI Rage 128 pro graphics card
  3. To connect VGA computers to the new Apple 17-inch Studio Display with ADC connections.

The DVI to ADC Converter Box is available for US$299. You can find more information at the Gefen Web site.
