Atlona Technologies introduces USB powered VGA to HDMI scaler/converter
Atlona Technologies (http://www.atlona.com) has announced the AT-HDVieW. This new unit is designed to take both video and audio signal from a computer and upscale it to a digital HDMI output and was specifically made for the retail market.
Users looking to upscale their computer viewing experience through their home entertainment center can now use the HDVieW to adapt their VGA outputs into HDMI. Operating this device is as simple as plug and play, due to the units ability to automatically sense the native resolution of the desired display and scale the computer's output to match it, according to the folks at Atlona.
The HDVieW offers a wide-range HDTV and computer resolutions, up to 1080p or 1920x1200 and will take audio signal from the computer and embedded it into the HDMI signal output, so that user is able to enjoy both audio and video though one cable. The HDVieW is a scaler-converter, which means that it works without any adjustments to the video card software.
The new AT-HDVieW will be available at the end of February at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of US$119. It's currently available for pre-order.
