The TMB DVI Parrot from Brompton Technology is a kit containing 1 DVI Parrot and a handy carry bag for it. A unique accessory for the video professional, the Parrot is a rugged, compact, class-leading user-configurable EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) management device which helps prevent "display misunderstandings" by quickly and easily solving various EDID problems. It also supports dual link DVI-I—both analog and digital. EDID is a message, normally stored in computer monitors and other display devices, that computer graphics cards use for configuring their outputs. Without an EDID, computer graphics cards will generally not function properly. The DVI Parrot acts as an EDID emulator that allows users to override the EDID message that is sent from a display device to the graphics card. This lets users force graphics cards to output in particular modes. The EDID emulation also means that the display device - such as a projector or LED video wall - can be disconnected without confusing the source video equipment. The Parrot offers complete control configuration, allowing quick and easy modification of all EDID parameters, greatly simplifying system set-up and trouble-shooting, especially of the large complex video systems that are becoming so popular.

Rugged, Compact Design
The DVI Parrot hardware is housed in a compact enclosure, with only a 28mm cable insertion / panel depth. Parrots are powered over the DVI or USB connection - no external power adapters required. An onboard RGB status LED provides an instant indication of the Parrot's status, and the push button switches between spoof/pass-through mode, or to automatically capture an EDID from a connected monitor.
