VGA to HDMI cable is a type of video cable used to connect devices with different video outputs. VGA (Video Graphics Array) is an analogue video standard commonly found on older computers, monitors, and projectors, while HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a digital video standard commonly used in modern devices such as HDTVs, gaming consoles, and Blu-ray players.
A VGA to HDMI cable is designed to convert the analogue VGA signal into a digital HDMI signal, allowing you to connect a device with a VGA output to a display or device with an HDMI input. This can be useful when you want to connect an older computer or device with a VGA output to a newer HDMI display that doesn't have a VGA input.
The cable typically has a VGA male connector on one end, which plugs into the VGA output on the source device, and an HDMI male connector on the other end, which connects to the HDMI input on the display or device. The cable may also have additional connectors for audio, as VGA does not carry audio signals as HDMI does. In such cases, you may need to connect a separate audio cable to transmit the audio signal from the source device to the display or device.
