Belkin AV360 converts HDMI to 27″ iMac Mini DisplayPort input

Posted June 28, 2010 in

If you’ve ever stared angrily at your 27-inch iMac and asked what – beyond OS X – it’s ever done for you, then Belkin’s new AV360 Mini DisplayPort Converter may be just the ticket.  The converter box is capable of taking in an HDMI input – such as from a games console, set-top box or Blu-ray player – and outputting it in through a Mini DisplayPort connector.

That takes advantage of the 27-inch iMac’s Mini DisplayPort input, which basically allows it to work as a standalone display for an external source.  The AV360 is powered from a USB connection, supports HDCP and stereo audio.

However, while it will accept a 1080p HD input, the AV360 only actually outputs 720p HD to the iMac, which could be a disappointment for some hoping to use the full extent of the 2560 x 1440 display.  The Belkin AV360 will go on sale later this month, priced at $149.99.
