Technology is improving every day but that doesn’t mean that you’re able to buy the latest and most high-tech equipment out there as we’ve all got a budget to stick to. This is where converters and adapters are useful as they allow you to pair up new and old technology to extend their life span and same you some money too.
The main reason for people using USB to HDMI converters/adapters are so they can stream movies and videos from their laptop and view them on their large HD televisions.
How does is work?
USB and HDMI ports are very different and are typically used for different purposes but the USB to HDMI adapter takes the data from the USB port and converts it into a format which is capable of being read by an HDMI port.
Not all laptops have HDMI outputs so if you want to connect to most modern TVs then this could really help you out.
Most USB to HDMI adapters are capable of converting the data so that the quality remains at a relatively high standard when viewed on a larger screen. Apart from rendering good video clarity, the converter also gives out good audio clarity too and this is extremely important as a great image with poor audio would completely ruin the experience you’re trying to achieve.
You don’t just have to mirror the image from your computer screen onto your TV as you can also use the TV screen as an additional one meaning that you can open an application on computer screen and another one on the TV screen which is helpful for watching films but also working on your laptop at the same time.
