I'm designing an HDMI to analogue component video converter for a one-off application - ie not for mass-production. It will take HDMI directly from an HD Handycam at 1080i/25 resolution.
I've seen the post from DaveD saying that you don't need to be an HDCP licensee if you use "no-key" versions, which is good! I'm looking at the AD9398, which appears to be a "no-key" version - can someone just confirm this for me please?
Secondly, I am assuming that the HDMI from a Handycam will not be encrypted - is this correct?
Finally, if the answers to the above are yes, I intend to get an Eval board, but can find little tech info online - ie a datasheet, or even a description of what the Eval board comprises.
I would be very grateful for any help with these questions - thanks.
