Analog Sunset

“Analog Sunset” refers to video licensing agreements that limit analog video outputs of copy-protected content to 480i Component Video. This means that although Component Video can technically support 1080p 60Hz video, only 480i signals are generally available from Blu-ray players and some DVD players and set-top boxes. Devices that convert HDMI to high-resolution Component Video are legally prohibited. These agreements are forcing many customers to upgrade from analog video systems to HDMI digital video in order to watch Hi-Def content.
