Windows Vista Ready LCD Monitor Round-Up

Vista is coming, which means your current monitor might be going. Whether your for or against DRM, you'll have to put up with it if you're looking for the best quality video. Today FiringSquad has rounded up 12 different monitors, capable of HDCP support, and ready for Windows Vista.

"HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection and it's an Intel-initiated program that was developed with Silicon Image. Manufacturers participating in the program must pay an annual fee of $15,000 and a device fee of $0.005. This is a content protection system as opposed to a copy protection system. Essentially, this protocol ensures that high-definition content such as HD-DVD, Blu-Ray, and copy protected MPEG-2 is encrypted at every stage of the transmission. All HDCP does is guarantee that premium high-definition content can be output over a digital display interface such as HDMI or DVI."
