Video Adapter Rental
Video Adapter Rental are for connecting laptops, tablets and other devices to projectors and HDTV’s. All laptops come with a “Video Out” port. The challenge we face is determining what your specific device has in order to assure it can connect to a projector or HDTV. There are no specific port standards by Brand or Model, so the fact that you will be using a Lenovo or Apple laptop is not sufficient to provide necessary cables and adapters.
“USB A or B cannot be used for Video connection. Projectors and most HDTV’s do not have the capability to show information from thumb drives. Please do not plan to use a USB A or B connection.”
This brief guide shows the more common ports, but certainly not all. Providing a brand or model of laptop will not help in determining a video port, since manufacturers offer options within models. If you are unsure, please email us a photo of your laptop ports. Having the correct adapter is critical for proper connection.
VGA is an old but popular video output that is still present on many PC laptops. Often it is blue or grey in color.
