I am working on a project that requires an HDMI signal to be stripped of HDCP 2.2. I have looked into it, and there are a few HDMI splitters that can strip HDCP 1.4, but I am yet to see any that can strip HDCP 2.2. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: The splitter I found (linked in answer) does strip HDCP. Apologies for asking this in the wrong forum.

  • $\begingroup$ Besides, manufacturing and selling a device that violates licence agreements to keep content protected would likely be sanctioned, so you will not find a device that strips protection. $\endgroup$ – Justme Sep 13 '20 at 20:13
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, sorry about that. A lot of HDMI splitters do on the down-low strip HDCP, but they just can't list it because of the sanctions. $\endgroup$ – ap0110 Sep 23 '20 at 8:14

It seems I have found a possible solution: https://www.amazon.com/Revesun-Splitter-1080p-Ultra-Definition/dp/B014EZ7266/

Will give an update on if it works or not.

Edit: The splitter does strip HDCP 2.2. Apologies for asking this question in the wrong forum.

  • $\begingroup$ Why would that remove protection? A standard splitter will protect the output content if input content is protected. It won't allow to send protected content to a display device that does not support protection. Also, why would your display not support protection? $\endgroup$ – Justme Sep 13 '20 at 20:29
  • $\begingroup$ Hi, sorry for not specifying this in the question. The video data is going into a usb-hdmi capture device, which is not hdcp 2.2 compliant. $\endgroup$ – ap0110 Sep 23 '20 at 8:11
  • $\begingroup$ Do you understand that that is exactly the purpose of HDCP - to prevent people from capturing HDCP protected video, so that movies are not pirated? $\endgroup$ – Justme Sep 23 '20 at 9:27
