HDCP blasted into our consciousness during the first turbulent years of HDMI more than a decade ago. Interoperability problems with HDMI never really went away over those intervening years — they merely changed, evolved. EDID and connectivity still remain the biggest causes of headaches, but bandwidth is rising in the proverbial charts as a result of new formats like UHD and HDR.
HDCP 2.2 is a key component of this, and to date there have been far more questions than answers as to what its ramifications may be. Even since HDCP 1.4 was announced as "broken" in 2010, most of us still don’t really know how HDCP works, what the real differences are with HDCP 2.2, what will or won’t work, or why.
Did you know that:
- HDCP 2.2 uses a completely different type of authentication and encryption process?
- HDCP 2.2 and 1.4 actually will interoperate seamlessly?
- Peripheral converters aren’t a viable option?
CEDIA’s new three-part webinar series investigates the full story of HDCP 2.2 — the evolution of HDCP, how it works, and what to expect in helping you to successfully design and deploy a content-ready UHD system. Take the guesswork out and take control.
Join us for the first webinar on May 19 at 6:00 p.m. ET
. I look forward to seeing you there!
