EDID is a VESA standard data format that contains information about a display device and
its capabilities, including the preferred (as well as the allowed) device resolutions.
The DCS-200's EDID file is stored in non-volatile memory. This file is read by a computer's
DVI graphics card during boot-up, when its DVI output is connected to a DVI-I input
connector on the DCS-200 system. The DCS-200 must be powered on first for the EDID
information to be read.
The following functions are available:
