Atlona has been making all sorts of converters and scalers for a long time. The company offers a converter for just about every need and today Atlona has unveiled its latest product. The device is called the Atlona VGA to HDMI Scaler/Converter AT-HDVieW.
The device is designed for the user who has a notebook or a desktop computer that they want to connect to the HDTV in the living room that is lacking an HDMI output. The converter is powered by the PC USB port so there is no power adapter to find an outlet for. The adapter takes the audio and video from the host PC and converts it to an HDMI signal.
The audio and video can then be sent to the big screen in the living room at resolutions up to 1080p. The adapter is a scaler and converter allowing it to work without any adjustments to the video card of the host computer. Resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200 are supported and Atlona ships the converter with a 6-foot HDMI cable. The AT-HDVieW is set to ship on February 22 for $119.
