EDID software

Recommended Posts

I would like to ask if there is a purely software driven EDID solution, that can dictate to the video card and fix a single resolution to all the ports available across all display pcs.

 

The available solutions are expensive and adds another connector to the chain of connectors, most specially if one has splitters and distribution amplifiers in the mix. Most especially if one has mdp-vga then vga to splitter, splitter to kvm, etc.

 

Especially if one is driving 9 ports at once..having a hardware solution can cost an arm and a leg.

 

Thanks

Before yesterday I would have said no, but spoke with some AMD guys at InfoComm

and discovered such a solution does exist for the FirePro line.

Don't have it yet, just got back from InfoComm,

but it is on our todo list for next week.

Will post back after we know more.

thanks jfk, that really sounds great.

 

That is also cool because we are using PowerColor HD 7870 cards :)

 

Thank you for the response.

The EDID utility is supported by the FirePro series.

The HD 7870 is a Radeon series card.

Less optimistic about it working on Radeon cards,

but we will give them a try as well.
