The Gefen VGA to DVI Conversion Box (EXT-VGA-2-DVI) connects traditional analog video graphic cards (VGA) to DVI compliant digital monitors. The VGA to DVI Conversion Box ((EXT-VGA-2-DVI)), enables users to connect laptops or legacy PC computers equipped with HD-15 video connections, to the new DVI (digital visual interface) video display format.

How it Works

Simply connect the supplied VGA (M-F) cable to the input side of the VGA to DVI Conversion Box. Then connect the DVI monitor or projector to the DVI output of the VGA to DVI Conversion Box. The converter generates the compatible analog to digital conversion signals to make the connection between the analog input and the digital output work.
