So the limitation with the electronics used in the latest Genesis controller makes the Dell 2407 act like a non-HDCP
monitor, when feeded with 1080p content using HDCP encryption.
The good news might be, if this article
is correct, that Dell 2407 owners should be able to display 1080p in full resolution (as all others non-HDCP monitor owners will), because there will be no HDCP
for the next 3-4 years.
Hollywood studios, along with major consumer electronics makers, such as Microsoft Corp. and Sony Corp., have agreed not to implement image quality downgrades on hardware that does not support HDCP copy-protection and HDMI output.
It was agreed that till, at least, 2010, if not even till 2012, signals from Blu-ray or HD DVD players should be transferred to televisions or displays in full resolution, even if certain components do not support HDCP or HDMI.
This may allow next-generation game consoles, such as PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as well as personal computers to playback Blu-ray and HD DVD movies in up to 1920x1080 resolution even on monitors that do not support high-bandwidth digital copyright protection (HDCP) technology or HDMI output.
Furthermore, if the report is correct and the ICT will not be imposed for years, computer users will be able to watch high-definition movies on large monitors in full-quality without any need to get a graphics card or a display that supports HDCP.
Unless, with the Dell 2407, the limitation with the electronics used in the latest Genesis controller turns out to be more... problematic.
