Note: Your computer must support HDMI Alt Mode.
HDMI Alternate Mode for USB Type-C; the HDMI Alternate Mode for USB Type-C Connector Standard. This will allow HDMI enabled source devices to utilize a USB Type-C connector to directly connect to HDMI enabled displays, and deliver native HDMI signals over a simple cable without the need for cumbersome protocol and connector adapter or dongle chips.
HDMI Alt Mode will support the full range of HDMI 1.4b features such as: resolutions up to 4K, Audio Return Channel (ARC), 3D, HDMI Ethernet Channel (HEC), and Consumer Electronic Control (CEC). This HDMI passive cable will utilize the USB Type-C connector on the source side and any HDMI connector on the display side. Unlike the other Alt Mode display technologies (e.g. DisplayPort, MHL) which require various adapters or dongles to connect to HDMI displays, HDMI Alt Mode enables an easy connection via a simple USB Type-C to HDMI cable.
