The next step for Analogix is to add in support for copy protection as defined in the DisplayPort 1.1 spec proposed in November at the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) that oversees DisplayPort. That spec, expected to be finalized in early 2007, defines a hybrid approach that embraces both DisplayPort's own copy protection technology and the existing approach used in HDMI and known as High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP).
Initially the two camps were set to support separate copy protection schemes. Analogix got around the problem by making its DisplayPort chips compatible with DVI which supports HDCP.
