What are these cables called?

Hi,

I've gotten a couple of macs over time (each one at a different time) and they were each connneced to their moniter using some type of a conversion cable. After I got the second Mac I saw that if I switched the moninters between the macs than the cables were not needed. Anyway, I'd like to know what these cables and the connections they use are called. Check out the pictures of them here:

OK. I suppose this is the what the smaller cable is, indeed it came with the Powermac 6100. Do you know what the other cable is?

I can look for another official name.  Unofficially it is an HDI 45 breakout cable.  Or an HDI 45 to HD15/Microphone/Speaker/ADB  cable.
