HDMI and/or USB video input


We have several ActivPanel displays at our school. I believe they are either version 1 or 2. On one of our displays, the HDMI port has become damaged and inoperable. 

Is the HDMI port the only input for video? I noticed another port (not the Touch Screen port), labeled TV USB. Will  this port accept video from a laptop. My thought was to connect an HDMI to USB cable from the laptop to the display. Will this work, or do I need to have the display repaired or replaced?

Let me know if providing the exact model and serial number will help further.

Thank you,


  • Hi William,

    Yes, the only input that will provide an image from your computer is the HDMI or VGA port.  The USB is for touch on the ActivPanel.
