TeleAdapt Mini DisplayPort adapter sends USB audio over HDMI

updated 03:50 pm EST, Wed March 3, 2010

Converts both video and audio to 50-inch HDTVs

TeleAdapt has launched the Mini DisplayPort and USB Audio to HDMI Adapter, a new cable that enables Mac owners to use an HDTV as an external monitor. Unlike typical adapters that send just the video signal, the TeleAdapt adapter uses USB audio to combine the audio and video signals through the same HDMI cable. It is capable of connecting any Mini DisplayPort-based MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or iMac computer, with supported resolutions up to 1080p.

The converter is powered via USB, eliminating the need for an additional AC adapter. Uncompresses two-channel audio is supported, such as LPCM.

The new HDMI adapter can now be purchased for $40, which includes a one-year limited warranty for both parts and labor.

    Nice!

    Might have to pick one of these up. Solves a problem quite elegantly, IMO.

    Looks familiar

    Except this one's been out (almost a year now, I think):

    Clever!

    If this thing actually does what it says on the box, it's pretty clever, particularly taking the power over USB. And $40 isn't torture either!
