Kramer introduces PT-1C EDID Processor

AUTHOR: Inavate

Kramer Electronics has released its PT-1C EDID Processor which helps resolve issues arising with HDCP.

The PT-1C draws its power from the HDMI cable and is housed in a compact Kramer Pico-Tools enclosure. The key to its versatility are the four DIP-switches located on the back panel. Many installers have experienced problems with the way Apple handles HDCP, especially when integrating video conferencing systems. One of the DIP-switches on the PT-1C turns HDCP on or off. When placed immediately downstream from a Mac with the HDCP off, the Mac outputs a non-encrypted signal that solves these issues with Apple’s implementation of HDCP. The PT-1C does not bypass HDCP rules and cannot remove HDCP from a signal if it is present.
