Check the chart below to identify the various connection plugs, ports and the appropriate adapters required to connect to the VGA cable supplied in College of Engineering classrooms.
Not all cables that connect a laptop or other device to the VGA cable will properly transmit a video signal. Make sure you are using the correct adapter, and that the adapter supports the output of a VGA video signal with your hardware and applications. HDMI is generally not supported due to HDCP (content protection) issues, although converters will work for many computers. VGA adapters for Apple mobile devices (iPhone/iPad/iPod) will only transmit video signals for supported applications.
