Part of the Kramer TOOLS line of compact solution products, the VA-1VGA will capture and emulate the EDID data of a display. EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) is a data-structure consisting of 128 pieces of information that a display provides to the graphics card of a connected computer source to describe its capabilities so that the source can output the best possible signal for that display. The EDID information is conveyed between the source and the display via a standard known as the Display Data Channel 2 (DDC2) utilizing pins 12 and 15 of a standard 15-pin HD computer graphics video signal connector.
Kramer says their VA-1VGA ensures that if a display is turned off, temporarily disconnected or for any reason unable to be seen by the source, the source will still output the best possible signal resolution. The VA-1VGA will “trick” the source into thinking the display is still directly connected even when the EDID information is unavailable.
