Description: Gefen DVI Detective Plus - Emulation device
Mfr Part #: EXT-DVI-EDIDP
Computers and HDTV video source devices can sometimes lose the EDID - basically the electronic identification of a display which lists its possible resolutions and frequencies. When displays are switched away or disconnected and then reconnected, the EDID can be lost and the computer or HD video source device can lose the ability to display the image properly.
The Gefen DVI Detective Plus allows you to switch or relocate HDTV or computer video displays while "tricking" the source devices into continuously reading the display information - maintaining smooth video operations throughout the process.
- Stores EDID information from DVI displays
- Keeps computer systems from deactivating inactive DVI ports
- Can eliminate CAT-5 lines used to carry DDC signals when extending computer video
- Passes HDCP copy-protection protocols for full HDTV, using an HDMI to DVI adapter (not included)
- No power required after initial programming
