Technology advances at a feverish pace, sometimes being caught in between the old standards and the new. The advantages to an HDMI to VGA cable is that it bridges the gap. Let’s say you have a television monitor or display that is not equipped with HDMI capability and only VGA, that’s where this type of cable comes in. Beyond using a cable, there is the possibility of using an adapter however doing so is bulky and not necessary when a cable makes the connection process so much easier.


HDMI to VGA cables are user-friendly and can heighten the diversity of an existing home theater system setup. Though we always advocate for an upgrade when better, more advanced technology is available, we understand some Canadian households still enjoy products with VGA outputs. There’s no reason that anyone should give that up. Instead of going with an adapter, an HDMI to VGA adapter provides a simple way to continue using VGA-output devices. Canadian households are not the only spaces where these HDMI to VGA cables are used either. Arguably, they’re even more common in professional video presentation settings, corporate conference rooms, classrooms, and more.
