DTLA: Networking Content in Your Digital Home

DTLA licenses the Digital Transmission Content Protection ("DTCP") content protection technology for standard and HD audiovisual content, and the DTCP2 technology also for enhanced video formats such as 4K, 8K and HDR. Both DTCP and DTCP2 enable consumers to enjoy their content digitally networked throughout the home and remote locations, and can facilitate consumer time-shift recording to external devices. DTCP has been widely adopted across the globe in consumer electronics products from set top boxes and digital TVs to Blu-Ray and DVD recorders; in voluntary standards groups; by a spectrum of cable, satellite, and media services; and over a variety of wireless and wired interfaces.

    We want to update you on DTLA operations during the current stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our office located in Santa Clara County remains subject to the shelter-in-place order requiring all people to stay home except for essential needs. This order continues in effect until further notice, per the Governor's March 19 executive order.
    During this period, our administrative employees are working remotely. We are monitoring emails and phone messages, and will do all we can to minimize any impact on our Adopters, Associates, Resellers, and Content Participants. We expect to continue executing licenses, invoicing, and processing and delivering orders for keying material and certificates on non-expedited turn-around times for DTCP and DTCP2. Given current restrictions, DTLA will reschedule its DTCP2 Plugfest for a future date TBD.
