Gefen DVI Detective with External Controls

Simplify even the most extensive display installations thanks to Gefen and their DVI Detective with External Controls. This tool is a unique and useful little device that reads and stores a computer's digital video information (EDID) in order to simplify the installation process for users who are extending a digital projector or plasma display away from the computer. Once installed and connected, the DVI Detective continually transmits the EDID to the computer, essentially tricking the computer into thinking that the video is present, even when it is not connected. This particular model includes external buttons to control the programming of an EDID and the protection of the memory inside the unit.
