Displayport to HDMI
The STC DP-HDMI active adapter allows you to connect your DisplayPort-enabled computer or tablet to virtually any HDMI display. As more and more system manufacturers such as Microsoft, Intel, Dell, and Lenovo include DisplayPort outputs on their systems, Plugable’s active adapters enable you to continue to utilize your existing HDMI displays while minimizing potential compatibility issues that can be caused by low-cost, low-quality “passive” adapters.
Our active DisplayPort to HDMI adapter is capable of supporting up to a 594MHz pixel clock and allows resolutions up to 3840×2160@60Hz or 30Hz(4K). (Most inexpensive “passive” adapters on the market, also known as “level-shifters” or “Type 1" adapters, have a maximum resolution of 1920×1200.) Supports pass-through of LPCM/HBR audio up to 8-channels and 192kHz sample rate.
The adapter has passed the extensive testing requirements necessary for VESA certification and is compliant with VESA Dual-Mode DisplayPort 1.2, High Bit Rate 2 (HBR2), and HDMI 2.0 standards. The adapter is also AMD Eyefinity and Nvidia compatible.
The STC active DisplayPort to HDMI adapters should work with virtually any DisplayPort-enabled host and HDMI display, regardless of which operating system is in use. Though please note that system will require functional graphics drivers as normal.
Available resolution options will be determined by the specifications and abilities of your computer/graphics adapter and attached display. I.e.; if the graphics adapter in your system is only capable of outputting a maximum of 1080P to an external display, the Plugable active adapters will not allow you to exceed this limitation, regardless of the specifications of the attached monitor.
Will convert from DisplayPort on the computer to HDMI on monitor only. Not a bi-directional adapter, and not compatible with gaming consoles, DVD/Blu-ray players or USB ports.
HDMI connector fit may vary. Using too much force at insertion or removal can damage connectors. This can be a big deal if it's an expensive device like a Virtual Reality/Mixed Reality headset with non-removable cables. So be gentle, and if you have any questions about a particular connection please contact our support team.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I am only getting 4K@30Hz when using your adapter. How can I get 4K@60Hz?
If both the system’s GPU, DisplayPort output port and the monitor claim support for 4K@60Hz, please check the Windows Advanced Display Adapter settings to ensure that 60Hz is available and selected from the drop-down list (example screenshot below).
If 30Hz is not listed and you are connected to our adapter with an HDMI cable, please double-check that the monitor has HDMI 2.0 ports. Additionally, some 4K TVs and monitors must enable an “HDMI 2.0,” an “HDMI UHD Color” or “Ultra HD/UHD Deep Color” (or similar) setting for 4K@60Hz to work via HDMI. Please consult the monitor’s manual and check the monitor’s menu settings to see if there is an applicable setting.
Q: What’s the difference between an active and passive adapter?
Some mid-range DP -> HDMI adapters (whether these qualify as “active” or “passive” is a subject of much debate and confusion) are capable of operating at up to 300MHz, but ultimately they are still reliant upon the Dual-Mode functionality of the host to transmit the TMDS signal required for HDMI/DVI displays.
Plugable’s DP-HDMI adapter is truly active. Rather than relying upon passing a TMDS signal via DisplayPort’s Dual-Mode, the adapters actively convert the outgoing DisplayPort LVDS packets into the necessary TMDS signaling. With an internal clock rate of up to 594MHz, our adapters support all the “must-have” features of HDMI 2.0, with resolutions up to 4K@60Hz, stereoscopic 3D support, and higher color depths.
Q: Does the Plugable DP-HDMI adapter support AMD Eyefinity setups beyond two monitors?
Q: Does the Plugable DP-HDMI adapter support 4:4:4 color/chroma sampling?
Q: Does your adapter support HDR?
