[Mike] True it's the same kind a shift but why? It's incredible impedance to market adoption when you make new technology backward incompatible. When we went from analog to digital - that was inevitable. Since then it became apparent the best protection for digital content is not HDCP but simple amount of raw bit rate on the output of baseband HDMI that has to be re-compressed again for any subsequent pirate distribution. Making new HDCP that is incompatible to old HDCP is going to slow down adoption considerably. ----- Original Message ----- From: Mike Tsinberg<mailto:Mike@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: opendtv@xxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:opendtv@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Monday, September 22, 2014 10:44 PM Subject: [opendtv] Re: HDCP 2.2 That means Home theaters installed in 2014 will only be able to view 4K HDCP 2.2 content when they switch the AV receiver 3 or 4 years later - 2017?
