Apogee officially intros HDMI to DP adapter

Apogee has officially announced its promised Kanex-branded HDMI to Mini DisplayPort Converter. It lets users connect any HDMI source device into a 27-inch iMac, LED Cinema Display or any other Apple device that has an mDP input. This includes sourches such as the PS3, Xbox 360 or Blu-ray player and the device will even pass through audio to the iMac's two-channel speakers. It supports HDMI 1.3 and DisplayPort/Mini DisplayPort 1.1a.

Some limits apply depending on the source. The maximum resolution for regular DVI is 1920x1200; consoles are reportedly limited to sending a native 720p. Also, the adapter allows for video pass-through only and does not perform scaling.

The Kanex adapter is expected to ship sometime in April, priced at $150. It will include the adapter itself and a 3-foot mDP cable.

    Priced out!

    Sorry but $150 for a single input adapter is just crazy, it needs a minimum of two switchable inputs.

    Monoprice...

    Hopefully Monoprice can come to the rescue again with a model for 1/2 the price.
