Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) is a standard data format that contains specific information about a monitor and its capabilities, including vendor details, maximum resolution, color characteristics, factory pre-set timings, and frequency range limits.
The Calrad 40-EDID Emulator – EDID/CEC Selector captures and retains HDMI EDID information from a monitor/display and can then be connected to the video signal source, emulating the EDID information in order to trick the video source (video card) into outputting the same video signal, even if the display is not directly connected to the video source or is connected using a video extension system like HDMI baluns. Most video extender systems don’t offer EDID communication between the signal source and a remote display, the 40- HDMI EDID Emulator is a perfect workaround for ensuring the optimum signal is provided to the display, regardless of whether or not there is a direct connection between the source and the display.
