Product Research


HDMI EDID Blocker: The Metra Ethereal HDMI EDID Blocker (HDM-EDIDB) has been developed specifically for the video security integrator in mind. It is no longer uncommon for an integrator to supply video from a surveillance NVR/DVR to multiple displays via HDMI; and when this is required there is a very high probability of EDID failure. These symptoms will include (but are not limited to) - no picture, picture size is wrong, picture is flashing, picture does not square with screen and no picture at all. The problem and cause are well known due to the fact security NVR/DVR's have PC based video cards, and while these are great for single display applications, they are not ideal for multi-display systems. To solve these issues, the HDM-EDIDB completely strips or blocks the EDID return information from any displays to the DVR/NVR allowing the integrator to set the desired resolution and refresh rate of the NVR/DVR. With the EDID blocked there will be no more conflict between the NVR/DVR and the video distribution system.

  • The HDM-EDIDB provides 6Gbps on 4 channels to support a total of 24Gbps bandwidth without loss of signal integrity.
  • The HDM-EDIB features a female HDMI jack and male HDMI connector that connects in-line with your HDMI cable.
  • It is powered by your component's HDMI jack and features a RF shielded metal case.
  • Supports HDCP 2.2, 4K Ultra-HD, HDR, BT 2020, and Deep Color.
