what is the difference between vga adapter and the av cable

The Apple VGA Adapter is designed to connect your iPad to a monitor, TV or projector using a VGA cab The Apple VGA Adapter is designed to connect your iPad to a monitor, TV or projector using a VGA cable. This is an older type of connection but still common on many projectors sold today. A VGA connection can only carry a video signal. Another limitation of VGA is its lack of support for HDCP - 'High Definition Copy Protection' - which prevents the playback of some movies (for example movies rented or purchased from the iTunes store) on an external display. The Apple Digital AV Adapter allows you to connect you iPad to a monitor, TV, projector or home theatre system using an HDMI cable. HMDI carries both a video and audio signal, and supports HDCP, making it ideal for playback of rented or purchased movies from the iTunes store. This adapter also includes a 30-pin dock connector to which you can connect a USB charging cable, allowing you to charge your iPad at the same time as using the adapter.

Plus there would be a slight signal delay. There are hot shoe connectors available but are best with nothing larger than an iPad mini. Frankly, if you are serious about an external monitor, either use the HDMI out and a cheap flat panel TV on a stand or buy a proper 5" or 7" camera-mounted monitor.

Does using the VGA cable reduce the battery life on the iPad?
- Asked by Stephen C from BEDFORD
- on Oct 18, 2011
When you use the adapter, yes. This is because the iPad has to do more video processing.
