Overview

The EDID Link is a device to manage DVI-EDIDs and communicate these to the graphics card. EDIDs (Extended Display Identification Data) are used to describe the (preferred) timing of a display device. The timing is describing the display’s resolution and its sync pixels. It is communicated to the graphic source via the DVI-cable.

The EDID Link can be used to generate and constantly hold an EDID whenever a display device is not able to send a correct or the exact needed EDID to the source. In addition the EDID Link will ensure, that a monitor is simulated even when none is connected to it, or powered down. The EDID Link does not need any separate power as it receives the voltage from the graphics card.

The EDID Link handles DualLink-DVI-I signals and creates / emulates DVI-EDIDs. Analog signals will be routed through. The device is not HDCP compliant.

Features

Per default, the EDID Link comes with preinstalled EDIDs and can be used without additional software. The hardware features are explained in the following chapter. In short, it allows to:
- select an EDID via a preset
- work in transparent mode to route the display device's EDID information to the graphics card

For more advanced users, the EDID Link offers an additional software. In short, it allows to:
- read out a display's EDID or load it from a file
- create an entirely new EDID
- modify EDIDs
- write this EDID to one of the user presets or to a file
