HDMI video converters are devices that convert video signals from HDMI connections to different video formats or output options. They are commonly used when you want to connect an HDMI source, such as a DVD player or gaming console, to a display or device that doesn't have HDMI inputs or supports a different video format.
HDMI video converters typically fall under the category of video converters or video adapters. They take the video signal from an HDMI source and convert it to different formats, such as VGA, DVI, DisplayPort, or component video. This allows you to connect an HDMI source to displays or devices that accept these alternative video formats.
