BREA, Calif., March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kanex announces two HDMI adapters for the 4th generation Apple TV®, allowing customers to use their existing hardware and have high quality audio support. The Digital Audio Adapter for new Apple TV provides an optical audio port to connect a surround sound system to the 4th generation Apple TV, while the HDMI to VGA Adapter connects a VGA-ready TV, monitor or projector with audio support. These Kanex adapters offer an easy way to enjoy the new features of the Apple TV, without the hassle of replacing current equipment.

"While new technology is generally designed to enhance entertainment and make life easier, it can also complicate things. Although the new Apple TV brought a host of new features and apps, it also took away its optical audio output, leaving many users with no easy surround sound system solution," said Andrew Truong of Kanex.  "Our plug and play solutions for the new Apple TV allow users to keep their existing home theater hardware, and enjoy the benefits of modern technology at the same time."

Kanex Digital Audio Adapter – Surround Sound Support
With this compact, portable device, users can stream HD content from the new Apple TV directly to their existing home theater system via HDMI, along with pristine sound via digital optical port. Enjoy music, podcasts, TV shows, and radio apps from the new Apple TV on any surround sound system or sound bar. The Kanex Digital Audio Adapter for new Apple TV supports 7.1 and 5.1 surround sound via standard optical audio, or 2.0 surround sound via 3.5mm audio port.

Kanex HDMI to VGA Adapter – Upgrade VGA Projectors, Monitors & TVs
Presentations and educational experiences are enhanced with the Kanex HDMI to VGA Adapter, allowing users to connect an Apple TV to a TV, monitor or projector equipped with VGA. High quality audio is also supported with a 3.5mm port for external speakers. With the Kanex adapter, AirPlay mirroring from an iPad can be used with an existing projector, eliminating the need to upgrade to expensive HDMI equipment.

The Kanex Digital Audio Adapter and HDMI to VGA Adapter are available now at www.kanex.com for $59.95.
