Windows Vista, HDCP and Digital Rights Management
Posted by News-Bot on October 28th 2005



Part of the feature set of Microsoft's upcoming Windows Vista operating system is support for High-Definition content, either through television signals, HD or Blu-Ray DVDs, or Internet video. Along with this support though, is a new set of restrictions designed to ensure the sanctity of HD content and protect it from copying.

To this end, the company is building support for HDCP into the operating system as part of its suite of DRM (Digital Rights Management) abilities called Output Content Protection Management (OCPM).
