A List of Ultra HD (4k) Monitors with HDCP 2.2

I'm not sure if HDCP 2.2 is necessary on a monitor but if you plan on connecting a Ultra HD source to the monitor one day, say Ultra HD Blu-ray, then you'll almost certainly need HDCP 2.2. HDCP 2.2 is the latest copy protection system and if you have a player that uses 2.2 you'll need a monitor with an HDMI 2.0 connection that supports 2.2 or higher. Right now it's hard to find a monitor with HDCP 2.2, it's actually quite hard to find a monitor with HDMI 2.0. Yes, I know that's confusing. As far as I know, you can't have HDCP 2.2 on a monitor/TV that has a HDMI below 2.0, although you can have a monitor with HDMI 2.0 but not HDCP 2.2. Got it? Great.

So to save anyone the trouble I compiled a list of monitors with HDCP2.2 and, to save people who are trying to find out whether a certain model has HDCP 2.2 time, a list of monitors without HDCP 2.2. If the monitor you're researching is on that second list you can stop looking now. I'm assuming that any monitor that has HDMI 1.4 hasn't got HDCP 2.2, so any monitor with HDMI 1.4 goes on that second list, as well as monitors with no HDMI. Even if you could get a monitor with HDMI 1.4 and HDCP you wouldn't be able to play back UHD at 60fps anyway.

The list is correct, as far as I know, when I wrote it but new monitors are coming out all the time and it's possible that I missed a monitor all together. Let me know in the comments if there's a UHD monitor with HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 and I'll add it to my list for future readers.

Unconfirmed monitors are ones that were hard to find specs for. Truthfully I just gave up because I suspect that none of them have HDCP 2.2.


  1. Acer S277HK and Philips 288P6LJEB are not HDCP 2.2

  2. A Take on view. Where the Sink"B" is a *PCmonitor 4k UHD displayport 1.2 hdmi 1.4 and where the Source"A" is actually a GPU Engine such as the new GEforceGTX 1070 or 1080 >DP 1.4 hdmi 2.0b *i.e. asus pb287Q (spec only says HDCP ready asustek hdcp2.2 adopter) in this ABC any plugin Device "C" blue-ray etc. are repeaters. I understand this same concept ABC may not work for tv alone but monitors PC with GPU, what are your newest opinion on this? Thank you!

  3. Seems Samsung has updated U28E590D, and now it comes with HDMI 2.
    Connectivity for UHD-compatible devices
    You can connect multiple Ultra HD devices, like PCs and gaming consoles, to the UE590. There are two HDMI inputs as well as one Display Port input on the back panel. Enjoy upgraded HDMI support with an upgraded HDMI (v2.0) that supports UHD resolutions at a 60Hz refresh rate, so 4K content plays smoothly without delay.

    1. Hey there where can I get the update for my monitor Samsung UE590 series?

  4. The 27UD58 (updated version of the already mentionedd LG 27MU67) does HDCP 2.2

  5. LG 27UD58-B supports HDCP 2.2 with 2 HDMI ports...
