Connect ANY Computer to Your HDTV

Connect your HDTV to your computer (Mac or PC) easily with The Sewell HDdeck. The HDdeck is an external video card you connect to virtually any computer through USB adding an additional screen (HDTV, projector or monitor). This will allow you to expand your computer's desktop space where you can watch videos, surf the web, play games, and more. It will not only handle video but also your computer's audio through the HDMI connection.

HDdeck USB to HDMI Connection Diagram

Once you have an additional HDTV or monitor connected to your computer system, you will be able to use them in 'extended desktop mode' (found on your computer's display settings) which means you can use all screens like one contiguous screen. 'Mirror mode' is also supported which shows the same image on both screens at all times.

How it Works

The HDdeck is a USB to HDMI display adapter. The secret to the USB conversion is the video compression algorithm inside this little external video card. It carries the top-of-the-line DisplayLink chip that guarantees smooth performance on your secondary displays just as if the display were connected to a true video port on your computer. That allows the USB pipeline (maxing out at around 480 mbps) to provide top-notch video connectivity including Hi-Def video and DirectX. This enables you to easily do just anything from photo editing to surfing the internet, watching movies, and play select games that support DirectX, such as Starcraft 2.

Installation is as easy as using the included CD to install the DisplayLink driver (downloading the latest driver is also avaiable from our site), and connecting the USB and video cables.

Integrated Audio

As an added convenience there is no need to run separate audio cables. This unit handles the audio and video soley through the USB port, making your set-up a lot cleaner and easier.

Up to 6 Screens at a Time

If you're looking for an inexpensive way to set up a video wall (with either extended desktop or mirroring) for 1080p high definition TVs, just use multiple HDdecks. Using six HDdeck USB to HDMI units and included software allows 6 simultaneous screens and allows you to arrange them in any way you want.
