Reports generated by Monitor Asset Manager provide detailed technical information about the target display device and its capabilities. Corporate licensed versions of this lightweight utility can be set to run periodically in the background where it can silently save reports in industry-compliant MIF file format to designated locations at pre-specified intervals. An IS manager wishing to implement industry-compliant asset management and inventory practices will find that Monitor Asset Manager is the perfect tool to compliment existing management capabilities.
Moreover, end users puzzled by the way Windows treats their monitors and high-definition display devices can gain insight into exactly what Plug-and-Play means: all the information provided by the display to the system is displayed in readable format, including DPM and GTF/CVT support, color chromaticity values, native and recommended resolutions with exact timing parameters, as well as device minimum requirements and maximum limits. The latest version also supports DisplayID structures, extracts and decodes EIA/CEA-861 extension data for consumer electronics devices like HDTVs, builds EDID override INF files, allows simple editing of key EDID data fields, and queries for basic Monitor Command and Control (MCCS) information from next-generation DisplayPort and DDC/CI compliant displays.
