New white paper: High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection revision 2.0Saturday, November 15, 2008
The consumer electronics industry has rapidly adopted High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) to protect digital content transmitted over digital interfaces like HDMI and DisplayPort. Now, usage models are emerging that let end users conveniently connect displays, devices, and home-theater systems via standard protocols and interfaces like TCP/IP, Wi-Fi, USB and Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI). Robust and proven technology is needed to protect content transmitted in these scenarios and HDCP is evolving to meet this need with a new set of specifications outlined in a new white paper. The first of these specifications to be released are High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection revision 2.0 Interface Independent Adaptation (HDCP IIA) and High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection revision 2.0 on WHDI (HDCP on WHDI). Additional HDCP revision 2.0 specifications for specific implementations will follow.
