If you are looking for an adapter for USB-C to HDMI, for example to control the image output via the Thunderbolt 3 port of the Apple MacBook (Pro / Air), you will find a large selection. Whether USB-C hub, cable or simple plug - it is important that the image or video transmission can take place in the desired resolution and with a high frame rate. You play it safe when you open the “Anker PowerExpand+” USB-C HDMI An adapter from Anker, because this delivers a 4K resolution and 60 Hz, i.e. 60 frames per second, with the appropriate video source.
With the Anker PowerExpand + you can connect image and video sources with USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 connections to an output device with HDMI. For this you still need a corresponding cable (see below). Then you can, for example, connect a current Apple MacBook Pro, a current Apple MacBook Air, models of the Apple iPad Pro or smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S10 to a monitor, television or projector. The adapter dongle has a surface made of anodized aluminum and a cable braided with nylon. The scope of delivery also includes operating instructions and an 18-month guarantee.
As already mentioned, in addition to the adapter, you also need the right HDMI cable if you want to use 4K media with up to 60 fps want to play back via the connected monitor, beamer or television. A cable would probably be best HDMI 2.1, thus enough potential for the 4K resolution given is. This also ensures the transmission of even higher resolution media, use of HDR 10+ and other standards; up to 8K resolution. For example, “Amazon's Choice” applies this cable model from CSL-Computer, which you can buy in different lengths of 1 m, 2 m and 3 m.
