Connecting and disconnecting displays from a Windows computer causes a complete re-discovery of all other displays. This process results in output flashing and can lead to Hippotizer becoming confused about output location. One method of ensuring this does not happen is to ensure that the computer does not see a display being disconnected which can be accomplished with EDID Emulation.

Note: Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) technically refers to information carried by DVI and HDMI connections to describe displays to the computer. (The display tells the computer what resolutions it can handle). Though display port uses a different signalling standard it is colloquially refereed to as EDID as well.

Hippotizer uses three types of EDID emulation, depending on the system:

Hardware Emulation — DVI

Used by:

  • Karst DVI
  • Karst DVI Genlock
  • Boreal DVI Single Link
  • Boreal DVI Genlock

Hardware Emulation — SDI

Used by:

  • Karst SDI
  • Boreal SDI
  • Taiga SDI

Software Emulation

Used by:

  • Amba
  • Boreal DVI-DL
  • Taiga DVI-DL
