Gefen HDMI Detective Plus (EXT-HD-EDIDPN)

High Definition displays with HDMI inputs use EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) to ensure that a connected Hi-Def source sends compatible audio and video signals. When displays are switched away or disconnected and then reconnected, the EDID data can be lost, resulting in an incorrect signal or complete loss of audio and/or video.

The Gefen EXT-HD-EDIDPN HDMI EDID Detective Plus has been designed specifically to address this issue by recording the display EDID date and making it available to the Hi-Def source reliably and on a continuous basis. With DDC re-clocking technology, the reliability of HDCP handshaking is improved, ensuring that the Hi-Def source always receives the correct EDID. 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. The HDMI EDID Detective Plus has been designed for quick and easy programming and installation.

The HDMI Detective Plus provides all the functionality of the DVI Detective N & DVI Detective Plus and adds HDCP pass-through with DDC Re-Clocking and the ability to use one of (6) pre-programmed EDID profiles and (6) user-programmable EDID banks for custom EDIDs.


EXT-HD-EDIDPN Highlights

  • Gefen EXT-HD-EDIDPN HDMI Detective Plus - Ensure Perfect Match Between Source & Display

    Ensure Perfect Match Between Source & Display

    The Gefen HDMI Detective Plus 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-HD-EDIDPN HDMI Detective Plus - Prevent Inactive HDMI Ports

    Prevent Inactive HDMI Ports

    The Gefen HDMI Detective Plus 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 HDMI ports, and ensures consistant resolution and frequency regardless of operation.
