The Pro HDMI to VGA and Audio Converter is an active device which converts a digital HDMI signal to an analog VGA video and stereo audio signal. This product is easy to use with no software or drivers required. Simply connect the unit and enjoy high definition content on an analog display. The durable metal housing protects the converter and provides for a long life.
