HDCP 2.3 (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection)HDCP 2.3


Protecting copyrighted material is a big deal. That's why

HDCP came along. It's a security feature that encrypts

could be no signal. 



Yamaha have a strong focus on both quality and performance. In fact over two generations of their AV receivers plus their latest sound bars, were designed to be compatible and updateable to the latest HDCP encryption technology. The products listed below, plus many more, received a firmware update to HDCP 2.3.
