Apple introduced the iPad 2 and along with it, a few new accessories to accompany its new tablet. One new accessory to hit the retail shelves is the Digital AV adapter, which can be used to pipe content from your iOS device to your HDTV. It’s not just for iPad 2 specifically; the adapter is compatible with the iPhone 4, the original iPad and the 4th generation iPod touch.
The Digital AV Adapter provides iPad 2 users with yet another feature, one exclusive to the new version of Apple’s tablet: When connected to the HDMI adapter, the iPad 2 displays a mirrored version of the contents of its screen on an external display. The Apple Digital AV Adapter routes digital audio to screens that support it.
Connect the Apple Digital AV Adapter to your iPad, iPhone 4, or iPod touch (4th generation) via the 30-pin dock connector and to your HDMI-compatible display using an HDMI cable which is sold separately. A second 30-pin connector built into the AV adapter lets you charge and sync your device while it’s connected to your HDMI-compatible display.
Digital AV Adapter is exactly what you need for iPad 2 so that everyone in the room can enjoy it on your widescreen TV, video projection screen, or other HDMI-compatible display.
