A new range of cables and adapters enables you to connect devices – such as a computer and a screen – to one another if they have a Mini DisplayPort or a DisplayPort. This also includes the ultra-powerful Thunderbolt output, which can be found on the latest Mac computers in particular.
Sandberg already offers an extensive range of adapters for different video standards
as well as various video cables, so the new range of DP/mini-DP cables and adapters is simply an extension of this.
Simplicity and functionality
It is important to Sandberg that things work and that everything is kept simple. That is why there are virtually no standards that cannot be connected to one another using one or other of Sandberg’s products. And it works like it should. For example, audio is always included in Sandberg’s cables and adapters for DP, mini-DP and HDMI. This is far from true of everyone on the market. Each individual cable and adapter is individually tested in order to ensure that the products work and meet the specifications.
The latter is becoming increasingly important as very large data volumes are transferred at ultra-fast speed.
Product Manager Anders Petersen says: “We have found that users are happy to pay a little bit more for a product that does the job properly. So we start with the highest common denominator for components, compatibility and quality control. You can compare the cables in a system with the mortar in a house: you can build a house from the finest stone, but it will fall down if the mortar is no good. The same is true of cables.”
Unlike other video standards, the DisplayPort standard is based on data packets rather than an uncompressed analogue or digital signal. For more detailed information about DisplayPort and Mini DisplayPort, check out Wikipedia
or other media.
