The title is rather self-explanatory in this case: ZOTAC will be launching an HDMI to USB 3.0 adapter. As with all USB 3.0 connectors, it is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 as well.

This is an accessory is its purest form as the USB 3.0-to-HDMI Adapter alone is nothing all that special. Pair with your tablet, netbook, ZOTAC ZBox, or a monitor to create something special. You can have full 1080p HD resolution on any display with HDMI support via a USB port on your device of choice.

If you need multiple monitors or just want to connect your HD TV to show off some home videos, this is what you want in a nearby drawer. My only concern is there is no mention of HDCP support so I am not sure how this adapter would handle playing Blu-ray disc content through it.
