The company's new chipset boasts HDCP and a 720p capability.

We tend to focus on in-home entertainment here at High-Def Digest, but it's hard to ignore the fact that just about everything is going HD these days, including in-car entertainment. The latest announcement from National Semiconductor shows just how far that goes.

The company has launched the new FPD-Link III chipset which includes the DS90UH925Q serializer and DS90UH926Q deserializer. Why is that interesting? Because this new chipset is the first to offer HDCP compliance for in-car entertainment.

National Semiconductor boasts that their new chipset is capable of 720p resolution, making it perfect for playback of Blu-ray discs. They're capable of quick transmission and work with 24-bit content at a length of 10 meters.
