Simulation Display – DVI Dummy Monitor Dongle

The Thruput DVI Dummy Monitor Dongle provides a unique solution for remote computer management. A common problem when connecting remotely to a machine is the need for the graphics card to recognise a monitor connection. Thruput has the solution with a small DVI dongle that can emulate any resolution. The advantage is clear – the machine never loses the DVI link and even over-size monitors can be transmitted over technologies such as Real VNC.
