Posted by at 12:07 pm on April 12, 2011

IOGEAR has released a new USB to HD Adapter, GUC2025H , designed to connect additional HD displays to a desktop or laptop computer using a USB 2.0 cable. Utilizing increased bandwidth of HDMI and DisplayLink technology, IOGEAR is now able to provide both audio and video support, a huge advancement from traditional internal video cards or external adapters/cards (VGA/DVI) that can only support video.

With a USB to HD Adapter in place, laptop users will be able to have up to three displays showing content; the laptop screen, a second display via the built-in VGA port and a third from the USB port courtesy of IOGEAR’s new adapter. In the home, the GUC2025H complements convergence since it provides a hard-wired streaming solution of any standard or HD content from the PC to the TV with a single HDMI cable connection. YouTube, Hulu and other computer content can be streamed to the TV interference-free with ease.

Installing the USB to HD Adapter video card is quick and easy for anyone who’s ever plugged in a mouse or other USB peripheral. No need for multiple software and hardware updates to get both audio and video, and no need for an external power supply since the adapter runs via the USB port. With video cards, it’s sometimes necessary to remove a computer’s back panel, locate the existing video card, remove and replace it, all without affecting any of the sensitive electronics. While certainly possible, these actions can void a manufacturer warranty, or worse, cook the motherboard.

Because the IOGEAR USB to HD Adapter connects externally, there is no threat of memory loss or inadvertent collateral damage from the installation. With support of resolutions up to 1600×1200/1920×1080 and 32-bit color, the USB to HD adapter shares content at its ideal resolution for the purest viewing experience possible.

The USB to HD Adapter model GUC2025H is now shipping with an MSRP of $99.95.
