This new presentation on High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection provides an update on the new specifications as well as use cases.
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.
Three leaders in the development of high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) technology and High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) discuss what has been done and is being done to improve HDMI/HDCP interoperability among consumer electronics products. In the presentation, DCP, LLC president Stephen Balogh provides an update on HDCP compliance, testing facilities and test tools.

DCP, LLC is pleased to announce the release of two new High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) specifications. HDCP Interface Independent Adaptation (HDCP IIA) can be implemented over any compatible protocol including TCP/IP and any compatible wired or wireless interface including Wi-Fi, Ethernet and USB. HDCP on WHDI can be implemented over the new Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI). Both of these new HDCP specifications support the transport of compressed or uncompressed content and include state-of-the-art encryption technology.
To license either specification, current HDCP adopters need only to sign an addendum to the HDCP License Agreement, which will be added to the web site soon. New adopters will need to sign the HDCP License agreement as well as the new addendum.
As of December 31, 2008 DCP, LLC will no longer accept submissions for Approved Retransmission Technologies (ARTs). Learn More
