Name of CableImageDescription
Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable

This is the preferred digital signal cable for use with Matchprint Virtual. It is typically shipped with most if not all monitors and will drive the monitor at its maximum resolution.

DVI Dual Link Cable

Single link DVI employs a single 165 MHz transmitter that supports resolutions up to 1920 × 1200 at 60
Hz. Dual link DVI adds six additional pins (located in the center of the connector) for a second
transmitter increasing the bandwidth and supporting resolutions up to 2560 × 1600 at 60 Hz.

This cable is seen less frequently than the Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable. Most new monitors still have the connections for it but are no longer shipping with these cables.
Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter

Image Added

This adapter was needed due to Mac Hardware no longer having DVI connections onboard. It is now used less frequently as new monitors come with the Mini DisplayPort to Display Port cables (not Dual-Link DVI cables).

HDMI cable

For Matchprint Virtual, HDMI cables can be used only if they can drive the monitor at its maximum resolution. Refer to the monitor specifications provided by the vendor.
USB A to B cable

This cable is required for use with Matchprint Virtual as it supplies communication from the monitor to our software.
