Why do i need HD(720p) or Full HD(1080p) ?
Well, you don't need it. But you may want it !
HD-DVD players, Blu-Ray players, HDMI graphic card, PS3, all of them are
able to unleash their true potential (720p/1080p mode) only through HDMI
If you want a valid ticket for the Full HD world you either need a
compatible display(with HDMI input) or a solution for your existing
Why do i need a HDCP compliant display ?
HDMI is a new standard that comes with hardware protection called HDCP.
If your display don't have a HDMI input you won't be able to display
720p/1080p signal on it (from HDMI sources)
Prior to exchange Data Video, HDMI source is exchanging keys with HDMI
Both have a special HDCP chip embedded. If your display doesn't have it,
even if it's technically able to display 720p or 1080p signal, it will
display a BLACK SCREEN.
On Playstation3, 1080p mode is only available through HDMI output !
What can i do if my display is not HDCP compliant ?
You can buy a new display with HDMI input or use a HDCP
They will extend video link to a "man-in-the-middle" device which will
remove HDCP protection and output Analog RGB
Some issues with those HDCP stripper/converter box are the following:
- They need extra wires, such as Power Supply, extra analog cable.
- Most of the time, switchs or settings need to be tweaked.
- Quality is limited and restricted because of longer analog link (need
of VGA analog cable)
- They are not compliant to HDCP rules as they allow easy acces to
decrypted analog video.
What are the advantages of using HDfury ?
HDfury is the world first device that you can directly screw on your
Unlike HDCP stripper solution on the market HDfury is compliant to HDCP
rules it does not allow and end-user easy access to analog decrypted
