Hi,

I am new here. I am looking to purchase an adapter which can plug into my Dell XPS 13 9360 and output 4k HDR Video from a native source file (H.265/HEVC 10 bit) to a 4K HDR capable TV. I have checked around online and came to know about this adapter and another one ‘DisplayPort 1.4 to HDMI 2.0b HDR’. Although the latter one explicitly specifies about HDR, the USB C adapter I am interested in doesn’t? Does this product support 4k HDR as per my needs? Please confirm.

 

Thanks.

Welcome sriharivn,

For HDR to work in a proper manner the source system, in this case your Del XPS 13 9360 needs to have an output with support for DisplayPort 1.4. 
Your Notebook does have a Thunderbolt  output with DisplayPort Alternate Mode Support, but 1.2 spec, not 1.4.
In fact we do not know of any Notebook at this point in time with DP 1.4 support, which is hwy we did not release USB C to HDMI 2.0b Adapter yet.
So the max we can offer at this stage is USB C to HDMI2.0 (CAC-1504 or CAC-2504) for 3840x2160at 60Hz, but unfortunately no HDR Support.
