Spatz DVIMAGIC

We're not entirely sure how they plan on getting their DVIMAGIC devices past the DMCA (since it is, afterall, a encryption countermeasure device), but Spatz has apparently developed boxes that'll take that HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) DVI signal (aka DRMed video coming off a player device) and convert it to good ol' non-DRMed analog RGB or even back to non-DRMed DVI. Man, the MPAA is so not going to be feeling this one, especially since right now they're riding on HDCP to keep all that nice hi-def video safe and secure on Blu-ray and HD DVD players. Too bad the box'll set you back €399 (about $480 US)—still, a small price to pay to stick it to the man like that.
