These are the necessary conduits that link a computer with a display. Cables come in a variety of interfaces common today, including HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI, and VGA. Various adapters and splitters exist to convert or multiply one connection to another, but it is always beneficial to use a native connection if you can. It is generally recommended to not exceed cable lengths of 3m if you can help it. Scan recommends connecting a PC to a monitor via either HDMI or DisplayPort, and either is needed for a high-resolution 4K display to work at its highest refresh rate.
This section includes a wide range of audio/visual cables, ideal for those interested in production and other tasks that require more than what their PC or laptop can offer. The selection includes 3.5mm splitters, male-to-female DVI adapters and analogue to digital converter boxes.
