Hello, for an upcoming film convention I have to display video from my laptop to the projector. The problem is, my laptop only has a HDMI Port and the projector is VGA.

I've read similar questions posed by people online, but it's always pertaining to the presentation of powerpoints and documents. I, however, need to transmit my video/audio to the projector and it's speakers with no lag. What are my options?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks so much for the response but the webpage only says the following: "1 projector, 1 screen, speakers and 1 microphone per room. The projectors come with VGA hookup only"

Thanks again for the quick help.

Do I still need to run a cable from the converter to the speakers?

I was going to buy the converter you linked http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... however it says "Converts VGA Source to HDMI Display" in the description.

Wouldn't my source be the laptop (HDMI) and the projector, the display (VGA)? I'm not knowledgeable on this so I'm probably wrong. Cool avatar btw ^.^
