There are multiple opportunities for the HDCP “handshake” to fail in systems where consumer sources and displays are used for commercial AV deployments. “Handshake” refers to authentication, encryption, and revocation. In some products, HDCP is not deployed correctly, primarily due to manufacturers applying the rules incorrectly (or not following them at all). Maintaining HDCP compliance can feel like a one-way ticket to Headache City, in the back row of the plane next to the bathrooms, with the beverage cart constantly smashing into your elbow. However, it doesn’t have to be that way.
TesiraLUX Now Supports HDCP 2.2
To provide relief from the pain and suffering content restrictions can cause, we’re proud to announce support for HDCP 2.2. With the release of Tesira 3.7 software, HDCP 2.2 support is now available on all TesiraLUX devices.
With Tesira software, you can manage the content sent to specific devices more easily, because the software will indicate content pathways through the system, providing a clear understanding of where protected content is being streamed.
Another feature unique in the industry is that Tesira software will let you prioritize output displays for protected content, ensuring that your most important displays will not be impacted if the maximum device count (32) is exceeded. It’s just one more way we’ve got your back. For in-depth information about HDCP 2.2 and its impact on AV installations, check out our HDCP Pro: A Handy Guide blog post.

- Added support for the Tesira EX-UBT expander
- Standardized the layout of Tesira front panel displays
- Improved Tesira VoIP connectivity with Microsoft Lync 2013 and Skype for Business 2015
