Gefen DVI Detective N (EXT-DVI-EDIDN)

Computers 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 can lose the ability to display the image properly or at all.

The Gefen EXT-DVI-EDIDN is a DVI Detective which solves this problem by memorizing the EDID information. After a quick and simple EDID recording process, simply connect the computer's video source to the DVI Detective, where it will fool the computer into thinking that a display is present, even when the port is inactive or the display is switched away to another computer.

NOTE: The Gefen EXT-DVI-EDIDN does not support HDCP. Please use the Gefen EXT-DVI-EDIDP (DVI-I) or the Gefen EXT-HD-EDIDPN (HDMI) for applications requiring HDCP support.


EXT-DVI-EDIDN Highlights

  • Gefen EXT-DVI-EDIDN DVI Detective N - Ensure Perfect Match Between Source & Display

    Ensure Perfect Match Between Source & Display

    The Gefen EXT-DVI-EDIDN memorizes the EDID profile of the connected source and the display. This Virtual EDID ensures perfect video resolution and frequency timing. Activating the write-protection switch on the outside of the unit will lock the settings from to prefent any accidental over-ride.

  • Gefen EXT-DVI-EDIDN Back

    Prevent Inactive DVI Ports

    The Gefen EXT-DVI-EDIDN fools the computer into thinking that a display is present, even when the port is inactive or the display is switched away to another computer. This prevents computer systems from deactivating inactive DVI ports, and ensures consistant resolution and frequency regardless of operation.
  • Gefen EXT-DVI-EDIDN Back - Program Button

Question: I have multiple Panasonic pt5500d projectors that are ceiling mounted and am having problems with ghosting and loss of image when switching some laptops. Will this unit take care of this and is this some thing that will work on all my other projectors? --we use VGA inputs
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. By continuously providing Extended Display Identification Data (EDID), this product may improve the loss of image when switching sources. Please note however, support for VGA does require an optional adapter, purchased separately.

Unfortunately, there are a number of reasons you may be experiencing ghosting, including faulty VGA cables and electromagnetic interference.
