The folks at Satechi have revealed a couple of new USB-C accessories for those device users that wish to output video from small screens to big screens. Two devices were shown today, one a dongle, the other a cable. The cable has USB-C on one end, and a full-sized HDMI plug on the other. The smaller device is the adapter which has a full-sized HDMI port on one end and USB-C on the other.
The Type-C 4K HDMI cable allows any Mac with a USB-C port to connect to a 4K display. This cables is 6-feed long, meaning users will be able to connect to a TV-screen across a small room – or behind and around an office desk. The USB-C 4K HDMI Adapter is meant to be used with an HDMI cable of any size – run one across the lawn to the neighbors house if you do so dare. Both the adapter and the cable support 60Hz 4K output – and you’ll want to make sure you’re using a high-quality HDMI cord when connecting with the adapter, as not all HDMI cords are created equal.
Both USB-C HDMI accessories are being made available this week through Satechi’s online store and through Amazon. The Satechi Type-C 4K HDMI Adapter was made available today in space gray, silver, gold or rose gold for $35. The Type-C 4K HDMI Cable was released in silver or space gray for $40 USD. The Type-C 4K HDMI Cable will be made available in gold and rose gold in the 4th quarter of 2017.
