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.
