The Lindy HDMI 2.0 EDID Emulator Adapter is designed for systems that require EDID signals to be continuously provided without interruption and helps overcome EDID-related problems that can occur when using AV/KVM Extenders, Switches, and Splitters. It can also be used in place of a monitor to keep the graphics card of a PC or Server awake for remote access via IP. With support for resolutions up to Ultra HD 4K 60Hz (via cloning) including High-Dynamic Range and with the ability to pass–through HDCP 2.2 content, the Emulator is suitable for use with the very latest PC and AV applications.
Some computer systems, KVM switches, and digital video signage systems may interrupt the flow of EDID data, or may not be able to pass this information directly back to the video card’s output port. This adapter can be used to quickly and easily clone the EDID data from an HDMI display so that the graphics card has direct access to the correct data from the display, the cloning process takes less than 10 seconds!
It is also possible to use the Emulator without cloning a display as it comes complete with preset EDID data for the most commonly used resolution/timing combinations, please see the Technical Information section for a full breakdown.
