Dr. Bott delivers HDMI adapter with audio support

After Apple released new MacBook Pro notebooks Tuesday the company announced the new portables feature Audio out over the Mini DisplayPort connection. While may not have plans for its own branded adapters to provide HDMI with audio, Dr. Bott has announced its Mini Display Port to HDMI Adapter II. The adapter supports the new audio-out capabilities of 2010 MacBook Pros and supports HDCP copy protection, allowing a MacBook Pro to connect to an HDTV via its HDMI port. the adapter is plug-and-play -- it does not require use of a driver and does not require a restart.

For owners of MacBook Pro 2009 and earlier Mini Display Port capable notebooks, Dr. Bott offers the Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter Pro w/Optical Audio to get both audio and video to an HDTV set via HDMI. The Optical Audio cable requires the use of the MacBook Pro's audio out port and uses a USB port for power.

The Mini Display Port to HDMI Adapter II (9180-MDHK) is $30, while the Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter Pro w/Optical Audio (9601-MDOP) is $100. Both are now shipping.
