EDID Emulator for HDMI® Displays
About this product
When a video source is connected to a display, EDID information is
shared between devices to ensure optimal video performance.
However, if you are using a third party device, such as a video
extender, between your source and display, the EDID information
may not pass through correctly.
The emulator lets you clone or emulate the EDID settings from
your display and deliver it to your video source to ensure proper
signaling between your devices.
To clone (copy) the EDID settings from your display:
1. If your video source is a computer system, set the mode switch on
the EDID emulator to PC mode.
If your video source is consumer electronics equipment such as a
Blu-ray™ or DVD player, set the mode switch on the EDID emulator
to A/V mode.
2. If your video source is HDMI, use the included screw driver to set
dip switches 1 through 6 in the OFF position (down).
If your video source is DVI (with an HDMI adapter) set dip switches
1 through 5 in the OFF position (down), while dip switch 6 is set in
the ON position (up).
3. Use the included screwdriver, to set the rotary dial on the EDID
emulator to position 1.
4. Connect the USB power cable to the Power port on the EDID
emulator and to a USB power source.
5. Connect an HDMI cable (not included) to your display device and
to the HDMI output port on the EDID emulator.
