The Atlona AT-HDVieW VGA to HDMI Converter/Scaler provides a way for users to easily connect a Desktop or Laptop PC to an HDTV, HD Monitor, or video projector. Using a PC's VGA monitor output, then connecting the provided USB cable, as well as the PC's audio output (cable provided) to the AT-HDVieW, and then connecting an HDMI cable from the AT-HDVieW to an HDMI-equipped HDTV, HD-monitor, or Video projector, you can view your Desktop or Laptop on your "big" screen in up to 1080p resolution.
When the connections are made, the VGA signal is upscaled up to 1080p and the audio is combined in the HDMI connection, so all you need is a single connection to your HDTV for both audio and video from your PC or Laptop. If your PC doesn't have an HDMI output, and you want an easy way to connect your PC or Laptop to your HDTV, definitely check out the Atlona AT-HDVieW.
