Eliminate the Headache of Display Configuration and Auto-detection with SmartAVI’s EDID-Mirror. The EDID-Mirror prevents Windows7, XP and Linux from auto-configuring your displays if your computer is started up with the displays disconnected or turned off. Certain operating systems, especially Windows 7, have a display auto-detection feature that can reconfigure your displays if they are not powered on or connected at startup. This can lead to the frustrating task of reconfiguring your displays. The solution is the EDID-Mirror, a DVI-D EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) emulator that provides a constant signal to the computer, regardless of whether the displays are present or not. This ensures that the display configuration is not lost.
