This approach provides one streamlined multiformat adapter solution for full 4K60 digital video. 

Kramer K-SPIDER supports a wide range of digital connections for laptops and mobile devices, maximizes versatility and convenience for participants, and makes setup a fast and seamless experience. K-SPIDER includes HDMI, DisplayPort, mini DisplayPort, and USB C inputs and an HDMI output.
