This DisplayPort to DVI Cable allows for quick and easy integration of a DisplayPort Device (PC, Laptop) with a DVI equipped monitor or TV. DisplayPort defines a new royalty-free, digital audio/video interconnect, intended to be used primarily between a computer and its display monitor, or a computer and a home-theater system. While standard DisplayPort cables are able to pass video as well as audio, this cable is only capable of passing video. Why, you ask? The standards that define DisplayPort and DVI/HDMI use different technologies for transmitting data which makes them incompatible with each other. If they are incompatible then how am I receiving video? Well, the source device is able to detect which connection is on the other end of the cable and simply sends a DVI signal instead of the DisplayPort signal.
