Build Status Coverage Status

Extended display identification data (EDID) is a data structure provided by a digital display to describe its capabilities to a video source (eg. graphics card or set-top box). It is what enables a modern personal computer to know what kinds of monitors are connected to it. Despite EDID information being important in telling the computer how the display works, many devices ship with bad or misleading EDID information.

This website lists monitors EDID information, allows users to browse, search and update them. It supports uploading binary EDID files to add new monitors.

Changes are stored in revisions to track malicious changes, only staff can revert revisions.

EDID files are parsed by EDID Parser. EDID Grabber collects EDID files from operating system and uploads them to this website.
