Extended Display Identification (EDID) Data is a VESA standard data format that contains basic information about a HDTV and its capabilities, including vendor information, maximum image size, color characteristics, factory pre-set timings, frequency range limits, and character strings for the monitor name and serial number.
The information is stored in the display and is used to communicate with the system through a Display Data Channel (DDC ), which sites between the monitor and the source device. The system uses this information for configuration purposes, so the HDTV and system can work together. EDID helps to eliminate HDMIs troublesome HDCP handshake issue.
The RS232 control allows the switcher to be controlled by 3rd party control systems like Crestron, AMX and Control4, or any computerized software/hardware control systems.

SOURCE-SINK AUTO-FIT Function:
This function applies to the situation when the source's HDMI version exceeds the sink's HDMI version. For example: When the TV is HDMI 1.2 version and PS3 source is HDMI 1.3 version, it will output HDMI 1.2 version.
Under default mode, this machine will output 1.2 version HDMI signal.
Under button mode A、When the source is HDMI1.3, (e.g., HDMI output from PS3), OUTPUT1 to 4 both support HDMI1.3 displays, meanwhile the output is not connected to output port and is not connected to the input port, press "selection of OUTPUT1 and key" simultaneously, the machine will output HDMI1.3 signals.
When the source is HDMI1.3, (e.g., the HDMI output from PS3), OUTPUT 1 to 4 are connected to the displays that can only support HDMI 1.2 MAX, or the output is connected to the output port, meanwhile the input port should not be connected, press "selection of OUTPUT1 and "lock key" simultaneously (no matter whether HDMI OUTPUT port is connected to the display that supports HDMI 1.3 or not), it will output HDMI 1.2 signals.

HDMI Version 1.3b gives you:
Higher speed: HDMI 1.3b increases its single-link bandwidth to 340 MHz (10.2 Gbps) to support the demands of future HD display devices, such as higher resolutions, Deep Color and high frame rates. In addition, built into the HDMI 1.3 specification is the technical foundation that will let future versions of HDMI reach significantly higher speeds.
Deep Color: HDMI 1.3b supports 10-bit, 12-bit and 16-bit (RGB or YCbCr) color depths, up from the 8-bit depths in previous versions of the HDMI specification, for stunning rendering of over one billion colors in unprecedented detail.
Broader color space: HDMI 1.3 adds support for Ăg.v.Color� (which is the consumer name describing the IEC 61966-2-4 xvYCC color standard), which removes current color space limitations and enables the display of any color viewable by the human eye.
New mini connector: With small portable devices such as HD camcorders and still cameras demanding seamless connectivity to HDTVs, HDMI 1.3b offers a new, smaller form factor connector option.
Lip Sync: Because consumer electronics devices are using increasingly complex digital signal processing to enhance the clarity and detail of the content, synchronization of video and audio in user devices has become a greater challenge and could potentially require complex end-user adjustments. HDMI 1.3b incorporates automatic audio syncing capabilities that allows devices to perform this synchronization automatically with total accuracy.
New HD lossless audio formats: In addition to HDMI旧 current ability to support high-bandwidth uncompressed digital audio and all currently-available compressed formats (such as Dolby Digital and DTS), HDMI 1.3 adds additional support for new lossless compressed digital audio formats Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.
