SMART TV: What is InstaPort Technology?

Last Update date : 2017.05.11

Samsung's Smart TV InstaPort Technology performs simultaneous background HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) authentication with devices connected via HDMI cable (DVD, BluRay players, etc) in less than 1 second! HDCP prevents copying of digital audio and video content between HDMI connections.


It means that, by the time you select a new HDMI connection (DVD player for instance) the HDCP authentication has already been performed so you can begin streaming content immediately. The image below shows you exactly how instantaneous that is:

Advantages of InstaPort in Samsung TV: 


●   Allow consumers to quickly access their HDMI connected entertainment devices.

●   Reduces delay when switching between the source devices connected to HDMI port.

●   Performs HDCP authentication with all the sources connected to HDMI port.
