HDCP stands for High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection, a copy protection scheme to eliminate the possibility of intercepting digital data midstream between the source to the display. HDCP compatible products such as DVD players, satellite and cable HDTV set-top-boxes, as well as few entertainment PCs require a secure connection to the compliant display.
DVI-D are used for direct digital connections between source video(namely, video cards) and LCD monitors. This provides a faster, higher-quality image than with analogue, due to the nature of digital format. All video cards initially produce a digital video signal, which is converted into analogue at the VGA output. DVI-D eliminates the analogue conversion process and improves the connection between source and display.
EDID stands for Extended Display Identification Data. It’s a data structure indicating the capabilities of a display that is communicated to a computer graphics source. With three user selectable EDID modes plus EPROM based Firmware, the HDDA12A-UK will overcome many system compatibility problems experienced with other Distribution Amps.
The idea behind such a label is to reassure you, the consumer, that a product that you are purchasing will be capable of meeting the hardware requirements so as to display HD or in the case of 3D Ready, 3D content without requiring any additional hardware or upgrades.
The inbuilt HDMI 1.3 compliant ‘Clear Eye’ technology ensures your source signals arrive at your display in pristine condition. It allows you to use output cables up to 10m without worrying about signal drop-off over your output cable run.
*Note - your DVI socket needs to be HDCP compliant to work with an HDMI signal
Using the very latest high-end cable technology, we have designed a cable with a profile that is 50% smaller than the average HDMI cable.
