Why do you need HDCP 2.2 to HDCP 1.4 converter ?

Date:2016-05-26 Author:admin Read:296
HDCP 2.2 is the new copy-protection scheme for 4K UHD content. Not only it is not backward compatible but many recent 4K devices don’t even support it.
Source devices, including media servers and head-ends like Netflix,will encode their 4K content with this new scheme (HDCP2.2). TVs must be HDCP 2.2-enabled to play it, and everything in the video chain including switches and receivers must be compliant as well, or the display will go dark and/or display a HDCP error.
Customers may have purchased expensive, high-bandwidth switchers and recievers with HDCP1.4, so they will need HDCP2.2 to HDCP1.4 converter to make sure the HDCP2.2 source can be displayed on the HDCP 1.4 displays.
