C2G Introduces Adapter Kits

New technology is exciting! From how we communicate, to how we gather and share information, technological advances have changed the way we do business. I always look forward to the latest and greatest features from technology, and can’t wait to see how my life might be made a little bit easier because of those advances. For the most part, this is always the case, where those technological advances translate into doing something a little bit easier than you did before; however, in some instances, technology advances at such a rate that we find ourselves caught in the in-between. We find that those advances can cause some heartache and stress and they make doing what we used to do harder than it was before. With the introduction of the new USB 3.1 specification, including the USB-C connector, and the increasing trend of bring your own device (BYOD) we are faced with one of those in-between times where you may face challenges, especially when it comes to connectivity.

If you’re the proud owner of a new Microsoft Surface, Google Chromebook Pixel, Apple MacBook, or any other device which features a USB-C or Mini DisplayPort connector, then you may be facing these connectivity challenges because of the number or type of ports offered by these devices. These challenges can be particularly problematic when you need to connect these devices to a display to share a presentation, video, or pictures or when you are looking to make a wired network connection. C2G has recently introduced adapter kits aimed to make these connections easier and designed for an A/V connection to a display, a wired network connection, or a USB connection from existing USB devices to a USB-C port.

The Microsoft Surface features a Mini DisplayPort audio/video output port and multiple, full-size USB-A ports. Typically, in a business setting, you will find that the projector or HDTV in a conference will feature an HDMI or VGA input. In those cases, an adapter will be required to connect that Mini DisplayPort audio/video port to that projector or HDTV. Additionally, because the Surface does not feature a RJ45 port, an adapter would be required to make a wired network connection for Internet access. The HDMI®, VGA, and Ethernet Adapter Kit for Microsoft® Surface™ from C2G solves these connectivity challenges with an adapter to connect from the Mini DisplayPort audio/video output to an HDMI input, an adapter to connect from the Mini DisplayPort audio/video output to a VGA input, and an adapter to connect from a USB port to a network port for Internet access.

The Google Chromebook Pixel features two USB-C ports along with two USB-C ports. The USB-C ports on the Chromebook are designed for charging the Chromebook’s battery, USB data connectivity, and for audio/video connections. To connect the Chromebook to a projector or HDTV an adapter is required to connect from the USB-C port to an audio/video input commonly found on a projector or HDTV. Like the Surface, the Chromebook does not feature a RJ45 port, and an adapter would be required to make a wired network connection for Internet access. Additionally, the limited number of USB ports may present a challenge when more than just a couple of devices, like a keyboard, mouse, and USB flash drive, must be connected at the same time. The USB-C to HDMI®, VGA, Ethernet, or USB-A Adapter Kit for Chromebook™ Pixel from C2G solves these connectivity challenges with an adapter to connect from a USB-C port to an HDMI input, an adapter to connect from a USB-C port to a VGA input, an adapter to connect from a USB-C port to a network port for Internet access, and a USB hub that connects to a USB-C port and provides up four USB-A ports.

The Apple MacBook features one USB-C port and a 3.5mm port for audio. The USB-C port on the MacBook is designed for charging the MacBook’s battery, USB data connectivity, and for an audio/video connection. To connect the MacBook to a projector or HDTV, an adapter is required to connect from the USB-C port to an audio/video input commonly found on a projector or HDTV. The USB-C to HDMI® or VGA Audio/Video Adapter Kit for Apple® MacBook® from C2G solves these connectivity challenges with an adapter to connect from a USB-C port to an HDMI input, and an adapter to connect from a USB-C port to a VGA input.

We have also introduced the USB-C to HDMI®, VGA, Ethernet, or USB-A Essential Adapter Kit which features a USB-C port to an HDMI input, an adapter to connect from a USB-C port to a VGA input, an adapter to connect from a USB-C port to a network port for Internet access, a USB hub that connects to a USB-C port and provides up four USB-A ports, and a USB-C to USB-A adapter which is perfect for connecting a USB flash drive to a USB-C port.

If you have one of these devices, or any device which features a USB-C port, then pick up one of these new C2G kits. They can help solve your connectivity challenges and make sure that your new device stays connected.
