Kanex (http://www.KanexLive.com) has released the US$149 C24DL, a full resolution dual-link digital video inverter (DVI) to 27-inch Apple LED Cinema Display (ACD).
It’s a dual-link DVI with USB to Mini DisplayPort converter designed for users with legacy Macs (2006-early 2008 MacBook Pro, 2005-mid 2007 Mac Mini) or PCs with high-end graphics cards to connect specifically to a 27-inch ACD. The Kanex C247DL supports the native HD resolution (2560×1440) of the ACD not available with other standard DVI adapters.
The converter actively converts the video signal from the dual-link DVI. The included USB cable powers the C247DL, allows for audio transfer to the ACD speakers, and supports all USB 2.0 functions including use of the iSight camera. The C247DL is available now for $149 at KanexLive.com/C247DL .
