An audio/video problem-solver
Ever had the dilemma of connecting a HDMI-equipped device, like a smartphone or Blu-ray player, to an older overhead or headrest video monitor in your vehicle? Yup, me too. Thankfully, iSimple now offers the ISHD01 MediaLinx adapter, which lets you connect that HDMI device directly into those red, white, and yellow RCA inputs on your legacy gear to get sound and video — making your backseat passengers much happier.
You can use the ISHD01 adapter to connect smartphones, Blu-ray players, or game consoles to a monitor with only analog audio and video connections, which could make long road trips much more pleasurable. For Blu-ray players and game consoles, you'll just need an HDMI cable with male connectors, which attaches to the female HDMI connector on the iSimple adapter. For smartphones, here's what you need:
iPhone® users with the Lightning connector: You'll need the Apple Lightning digital AV adapter and an HDMI cable to plug into the iSimple adapter.
Android™ users: You'll need a compatible MHL-to-HDMI cable for your phone, which plugs into the female HDMI connector on the ISHD01 adapter.
Works for home gear too
The ISHD01 connects to home audio/video gear that only offers RCA inputs as well. Some Blu-Ray players only offer an HDMI output for audio and video, and the iSimple lets you use that output to feed analog audio and video signals to your older TV or surround receiver.
