TRENDnet delivers the TU3-HDMI, a new device that converts USB 3.0 to HDMI to allow you to connect your PC to your TV. At $99.99 the price is pretty high though.
TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the availability of the USB 3.0 to HD TV Adapter, model TU3-HDMI, which extends a Windows®-based computer's viewing field to a HD TV, monitor, receiver, or projector with a HDMI port.
The adapter converts a 5 Gbps SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port on a computer to a HDMI port. It also works with standard USB 2.0 or 1.1 ports. Extend mode adds a HD TV viewing field to the left, right, top, or bottom of your existing monitor. Mirror mode, copies a monitor's viewing field to a HD TV or other device. The Primary Display function transfers a computer's operating system controls to the connected HDMI device. The included software manages up to six TU3-HDMI adapters to copy or extend a viewing field over many TVs.
"TRENDnet's TU3-HDMI combines the functionality of your computer with the visual impact of your big screen HD TV," stated Sonny Su, technology director for TRENDnet.
