Gefen last week announced two new adapters which are designed to link DVI and digital audio and component sources to HDMI displays. The new DVI Audio to HDMI Adapter and Component Audio to HDMI Adapter are priced at $299 and $199 respectively and should be available shortly.
The DVI Audio to HDMI Adapter, said Gefen, allows one to send HD video to a display with digital audio in TOSlink and S/PDIF formats. It comes equipped with one DVI, one TOSlink and one S/PDIF input. The Component Audio to HDMI Adapter, meanwhile, connects component sources or VGA computers to an HDMI display, bringing HD video together with two channels of audio (left and right) to the display.
Both Adapters are also HDCP pass-through compliant so protected content can be seen with no viewing issues.
