High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP)
HDCP is the technology for protecting high definition content against unauthorized copy or unreceptive between a source (computer, digital set top boxes, etc.) and the sink (panels, monitor, and TV). The Processor supports HDCP 1.4/2.1 for content protection over wired displays (HDMI, Display Port and Embedded Display Port).We've also seen a number of people asking about the maximum resolution that can be supported. The maximum screen resolution of the graphics core used on the N2820 allows up to 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz but that is only if it uses DisplayPort. Intel went with an HDMI video output on this particular unit, so the HDMI video output is capable of running at resolutions of up to 1920x1080 at 60 Hz. Sorry to dash the hopes of those that were wanting to push a 4K monitor with this budget friendly system.
High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI)
The HDMI port supports standard, enhanced, or high definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable. The port is compatible with all ATSC and DVB HDTV standards and supports eight full range channels at 24-bit/96 kHz audio of lossless audio formats. The maximum supported resolution is 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz, 24 bpp (WUXGA). The HDMI port is compliant with the HDMI 1.4 specification.The Intel Celeron N2820 processor contains the entry level Intel HD Graphics solution that runs at 756MHz and just doesn't have the power needed to push multiple monitors or 4K Ultra HD screen resolutions. When it comes to connectivity you have the 3.5mm headphone and microphone combo jack, two USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000Mbps), the HDMI 1.4a video output and finally the power plugin. On the other side of the board you have the IR sensor on one side and then a single SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port. You can also see the single SATA III 6Gbps internal header from this shot that is used for the devices single 2.5" storage drive. It should be noted that the maximum z-height that is officially supported is 9.5mm. This is the only shot of the top side of the motherboard that we were able to get and it doesn't show the HSF, but you can at least see the layout.
