Diamond Announces USB to Display Adapters
Diamond Multimedia has released a USB adapter which allows users to connect monitors, TVs and projectors through a USB 2.0 interface.
Diamond has announced the arrival of a USB adapter that terminates in DVI. Not only does it have a DVI output, but users can also just pop DVI-HDMI or DVI-VGA adapters onto it and drive those displays. The BVU165 should consume up to 80 percent less power than a laptop or desktop integrated graphics card.
Using these adapters, users can connect up to six displays. While obviously requiring a USB port and an adapter for each display, the adapters do support up to FullHD resolutions. They are also driven by only USB 2.0, not USB 3.0.
The device will be released in two variants, the BVU165, which is the adapter by itself, and the BVU165LT, which comes with an HDMI and VGA adapter. The two devices will be priced at $39.99 and $49.99, respectively, and should be available as of today at authorized resellers.
