       The host has a DisplayPort interface output, how to connect an HDMI display? Although both the DisplayPort interface and the HDMI interface are digital interfaces, because the DisplayPort interface can transmit 6 channels of audio and video signals at the same time, while the HDMI interface can only transmit 1 channel of audio and video signals at the same time, the DisplayPort interface is slightly better than the HDMI interface. Because the protocol of the DisplayPort interface is different from the HDMI interface, a DisplayPort to HDMI signal converter is needed between the DisplayPort output interface and the HDMI display. The role of the converter is to convert the DisplayPort data into HDMI high-definition audio and video signals for HDMI output. Interface display device usage

       Before we connect the DisplayPort device and the HDMI display device, we need to look at the shape of our DisplayPort output interface, confirm whether it is a small DisplayPort or a large DisplayPort interface, and then purchase the corresponding DisplayPort to HDMI converter; here we say above Take the large DisplayPort interface to HDMI converter as an example. First find the DisplayPort output interface of the DisplayPort host, insert the DisplayPort connector of the DisplayPort converter into the DisplayPort interface, and then use a standard HDMI cable to insert one end of the HDMI cable into the DisplayPort converter’s In the HDMI interface, the other end is directly plugged into the HDMI interface of the HDMI display, and it can be used after normal power on

       Is there any other method besides the above method directly? Yes, directly use the DisplayPort to HDMI cable, plug the DisplayPort connector into the DisplayPort host that outputs audio and video, and then plug the HDMI plug into the HDMI display. The connection diagram is similar to the diagram above. Speaking of here, some friends may ask, if there is a DisplayPort to HDMI cable, why use a DisplayPort to HDMI converter? This is the case. Both the DisplayPort to HDMI cable and the DisplayPort to HDMI converter need to be converted by a chip. The DisplayPort to HDMI cable is limited by the length of the cable and is suitable for short-distance connections; the DisplayPort to HDMI converter is relatively flexible, and there are many HDMI cables. It can be connected as long as possible; so when we choose, we can choose DisplayPort to HDMI cable or DisplayPort to HDMI converter according to our actual needs
