Why We Buy Audio, Video, and Cable Adapters – Add More Function to Your Home

Occasionally, we run into the problem of not having the ability to amplify audio or connect a video to the right device. When this happens, thankfully, you have a wide array of audio and video signal adapters to choose from.

Why we buy cable adapters is ultimately to turn one cable type into another cable type, modifying the connector. For example, let’s say you have a video signal coming across a DVI/VGA cable but your flat-screen has no such input. If all your flat-screen has is HDMI, an adapter that goes DVI-to-HDMI or VGA-to-HDMI – in accordance with the requirements of whatever the existing connection is – THAT’s what’s needed.

Compatibility issues aren’t just reserved for solution by adapters either. Sometimes a converter’s better. For example, if you have an analog signal to convert into digital, a converter does it! Alternatively maybe you want to extend a signal beyond what the length of a cable allows. Extenders are employed in this case, perfect for adding more power to a signal that has to go across long distances.

As a multi-screen household or if you’re looking to get either audio or video functionality on multiple screens, a splitter is used to do this. Audio and video splitters essentially divide a signal, allowing it to reach multiple input points. The most popular kind of home theater splitter is HDMI, which would send audio and video to two or more devices.

Technically, within the scope of what splitters, converters, and extenders do, you could say network routers and switchers do the same thing. These devices help strengthen or extend distribution of signal. For virtually anything – DVI, VGA, HDMI, or router – there are means of adapting the signal to the unique home setup you have. If you aren’t getting the functionality you’ve always wanted to have from your home theater system, look at the possibility of what adapters can do. You may be surprised to find out there’s a lot you can do.

USB cable adapters can also help a ton in connecting USB devices, printers, keywords, and equipment of all kinds to a computer or wall plug to charge. Although a USB cable adapter’s never going to be able to increase speed or add to the technology in a USB connector, they provide connection where it may not be otherwise possible. If you have an older device or something purchase overseas that may not have the most convenient USB type on it, there are tons of adapters that could potentially help in resolving this very, very common issue.
