The UltraAV USB 2.0 to HDMI Audio and Video Adapter and the USB 2.0 to DVI-I or VGA Video Adapter both set up in minutes and eliminate the complicated process of adding an internal graphics card to a desktop PC. Notebook users can add support for an additional monitor, while using a computer to stream video, movies or the Internet onto a large screen TV. In addition, the adapters offer increased productivity by adding an additional display to mirror or extend a user’s desktop.

“By incorporating the DisplayLink DL-195 USB video processor to our new USB graphic adapters, we’ve eliminated the delay often seen in mid-level video processors,” stated Michael Weizer, director of marketing, Accell. “Whether looking to stream video onto a large screen TV or add an additional monitor to your desktop, users will experience a solid and secure connection, with a definite increase in quality video performance.”

Available now at various Accell retailers and distributors, the UltraAV USB 2.0 to HDMI Adapter is available with an MSRP of $99.99, while the UltraVideo USB 2.0 to DVI-I or VGA Video Adapter is available with an MSRP of $89.99.
