Extron Announces New EDID Emulator for HDMI

The EDID 101H joins the EDID 101 Series of EDID emulators, which includes the EDID 101D for DVI and the EDID 101V for VGA signals.

Anaheim, California (February 26, 2013) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the EDID 101H, an EDID Emulator for HDMI signal sources. It features EDID Minder®, an Extron exclusive technology that automatically manages EDID communication between connected devices. Pre-stored EDID is communicated to the source based on a user-selected resolution and refresh rate. Alternatively, the EDID 101H can be set to capture and store EDID information when connected to a display. A unique HPD - Hot Plug Detect port provides control for remote cameras and other signal sources that require a periodic HPD trigger.


"Problems with EDID communication between devices have become a major headache for AV integrators," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The EDID 101H solves these problems by ensuring that EDID information is properly communicated between the HDMI source and display."

The EDID 101H joins the EDID 101 Series of EDID emulators, which includes the EDID 101D for DVI and the EDID 101V for VGA signals. The EDID 101H is housed in a compact 1" high, quarter rack width metal enclosure for convenient, discreet installation. An energy-efficient external universal power supply is included.
