Configuring Monitor Emulation¶
The Monitor Emulation page lets you enable or disable monitor emulation for the video ports on your remote workstation. You can access this page from the Configuration > Monitor Emulation menu.
Some PCs and workstations do not boot if a display is not attached. The monitor emulation feature presents a generic display to ensure the boot process completes. When a session is connected, the client display information is sent to the host. For further details about Teradici's monitor emulation feature, see Monitor Emulation.
Monitor Emulation option
If monitor emulation is performed in hardware for a device, the AWI Configuration menu will not have a Monitor Emulation option.

AWI Tera2 Host Monitor Parameters¶
|Enable Monitor Emulation on Video Port 1||When enabled, the host responds to all Display Data Channel (DDC) queries, regardless of whether a PCoIP session is active. If a session is not active, the host provides emulated DDC data. If a session is active, the host provides actual DDC data gathered from the monitor connected to the client's port 1 connector. The ports are mapped one-to-one and in sequential order (e.g., client port 1 to emulated port 1, and so on).
When disabled, the host only responds to Display Data Channel (DDC) queries when a PCoIP session is active and a client display is attached.
Note: Enabling this field can help resolve problems where video is not present at the client.
|Enable Monitor Emulation on Video Port 2||This field affects DDC queries for the port 2 connector, and provides functionality identical to that for the port 1 connector.|
|Enable Monitor Emulation on Video Port 3||This field affects DDC queries for the port 3 connector, and provides functionality identical to that for the port 1 connector.|
|Enable Monitor Emulation on Video Port 4||This field affects DDC queries for the port 4 connector, and provides functionality identical to that for the port 1 connector.|
|Enable Host Hot-Plug Delay||When enabled, allows lengthier hot plug de-assert/assert profiles on the host. Enabling this feature allows the host to resolve black screen issues with certain Linux GPU driver timing expectations.|
|Enable Accelerated Monitor Emulation||When enabled, this property accelerates the delivery of EDID information to host systems that boot up very quickly (e.g., faster than five seconds), causing blank screens on the remote end. Typically, these are systems with solid-state drives (SSDs).|
