The VSEDIDDVI DVI EDID Emulator enables you to capture and retain Extended Display Identification Data from a monitor, which can then be connected to the video signal source (Video Extender, KVM Switch, etc.) to pass the EDID information and ensure the proper video settings are maintained.

EDID information contains important display settings such as maximum image size, color characteristics, factory pre-set timings, frequency range limits, etc., and since most video extender systems don’t offer EDID communication between the source and remote display, the DVI EDID Emulator is a perfect workaround for ensuring the optimum signal is provided to the display to help prolong the life of your displays.

This product is TAA compliant and backed by a 3-year warranty with free lifetime technical support.

The Advantage

  • EDID Copy feature saves time by making sure your display works the way you want it
  • Simple rotary switch enables you to quickly emulate the EDID settings that you want
  • Sturdy steel enclosure provides durability for harsh environments


Detect EDID settings and capture them to trick your computer into thinking the display directly connected

Emulate (spoof) EDID information ensuring optimal resolution when a display's EDID is not available or properly detected

(5 stars) SPECTACULAR !

Pros: When you have 3 or more monitors with Win7, booting up with the monitors off or switching them off then on with a booted system, is a nightmare. Windows doesn't properly restore your desktop. It seems Microsoft couldn't care less about it. There are a handful of programs designed to help but none can solve all the problems. The only complete solution is an EDID Emulator. The concept is to introduce a device in line with each monitor to convince the graphics card & the OS that the monitors are on when they are off. However, all EDID emulators are not created equal. I tried the Pi Manufacturing brand which looks EXACTLY like the Connect Pro unit (probably re-branded ) and the unit was a horror show. It requires SO much power to operate that many "wall warts" fail to work with them. As a result they behaved erratically. If you have 3 or more monitors you will need 3 EDID units. Ouch ! Kinda expensive !! But, if you prefer NOT to waste your time, get solid performers, these StarTech units are absolutely the way to go ! Flawless operation (so far :) and they are NOT power hogs ! Cons: NONE !! Other Thoughts: When you spend hundreds on a graphic card, it would be nice if these MFRs added this feature to them rather then ignore the problem. ALSO: EVERY graphics card has DVI outputs. Who in their right mind buys actual monitors when LED/LCD TVs look SPECTACULAR and are cheap. However, Graphics card MFRs do not have real HDMI outputs. As a rule the HDMI output(s) will not work with a 3rd monitor. You need ANOTHER dongle! A mini display port to HDMI adapter, but MANY of them are unreliable ! WAKE UP GRAPHICS CARD MFRs ! Get with the program ! Undoubtedly, some will argue that Monitors have better image quality. To that I submit, I am using three 50" LCD monitors right now. I do 3D CAD design and graphics work. They are razor sharp and look fantastic. All 3 cost $1,200. Try that with monitors $$$.
