TV One adds EDID Manager to CORIO 2
TV One has released the new EDID Manager feature for its C2-2000A series of video switcher/scalers.
EDID Manager lets users copy the EDID data from a display attached to the output of the TV One unit and simulate its presence on a PC attached to its input, effectively giving the C2-2000A scaler transparent EDID operation.
EDID is an information packet retrieved by a PC graphic card over a DVI link from a monitor that informs the graphic card of the resolutions compatible with the display. The EDID manager on a CORIO2 C2-2000A unit works by holding multiple copies of EDID data in nonvolatile memory and allowing the user to select which one is shown to a PC on the DVI input.
