Belkin kicks out HDMI to Mini DP converter for iMacs

Belkin goes after Kanex XD with Mini DP adapter

Belkin on Wednesday chased after the dorm room audience with the AV360, a new Mini DisplayPort adapter for the 27-inch iMac. Like the Kanex XD, it converts most any HDMI input, such as that of a PS3 or Xbox 360, into usable 720p video for the Apple all-in-one's Mini DP in/out jack. It carries over audio and accepts up to a native 1080p signal, although the iMac's resolution recognition will require lower.

The adapter includes the necessary bridging cable to make the connection and has its own USB cable to supply power without needing a wall outlet. Belkin ships it within the next few days for $150.

Also available is a four-foot Mini DP to Mini DP cable for those who either need a second cable or already have a device that can output in the display format natively, such as a unibody MacBook or MacBook Pro. It costs $30.
