KVM peripheral maker Gefen Inc. today announced the release of its ex-tend-it DVI to VGA conversion box. The device is available for order online and costs US$399.
The DVI to VGA conversion box enables Mac or PC users to attach an analog VGA display to the DVI (Digital Visual Interface) port on the backs of so equipped Macs and PCs. The box incorporates its own power supply and cables.
With many DVI-based video cards also equipped with a VGA port and capable of outputting video on the DVI and VGA interfaces simultaneously, Gefen suggested that this device is a way for users to attach two analog displays to a single computer simultaneously.
