Kramer Introduces the PT-1C EDID Processor

Ideal HDMI Troubleshooting Tool

Kramer Electronics, a worldwide supplier of innovative and reliable signal management products, is pleased to introduce the PT-1C EDID Processor.


The PT-1C draws its power from the HDMI cable and is housed in a compact Kramer Pico-Tools™ enclosure. The key to its versatility are the four DIP-switches located on the back panel.

Many installers have experienced problems with the way Apple handles HDCP, especially when integrating Video Conferencing systems. One of the DIP-switches on the PT-1C turns HDCP on or off. When placed immediately downstream from a Mac with the HDCP off, the Mac outputs a non-encrypted signal that solves these issues with Apple's implementation of HDCP. The PT-1C does not bypass HDCP rules and cannot remove HDCP from a signal if it is present.

Another DIP-switch on the PT-1C limits color depth. In situations where bandwidth on certain legacy equipment does not support Deep Color, the PT-1C can be used to ensure that only 8-bit color is passed.

The audio DIP-switch provides a means for limiting the output of an upstream device to 2-channel LPCM (Linear Pulse Code Modulation) for cases where the target EDID is asking for an audio type that other system devices do not support.

Finally, the EDID lock switch allows the user to lock in the EDID from the connected display or other displays/EDID sources.

The PT-1C is in stock and available from Kramer sales offices around the world.
