Computers and other Hi-Def video source devices can sometimes lose the EDID (Extended Display Identification Data), when switched away from the source. When displays are switched off (or disconnected and reconnected), EDID can also be lost, and a computer or a Hi-Def video device may no longer be able to show the video properly. The Gefen DisplayPort Detective Plus provides rapid integration of your source and display by allowing the EDID to be pre-set or recorded. This data is then stored in non-volatile memory. The display can then be switched or relocated to a different source, providing the new source with the correct display setting. External DIP switches allow pass-through or blocking of HDCP and DPCP based on your application, and provide instant access to other pre-programmed EDID banks. Using the Gefen Syner-G PC software or terminal emulation via USB, the installer can also manipulate/modify the EDID data to meet installation-specific requirements and resolve system-specific compatibility issues.
