Does anyone know anything about these "protected" products on the hdfury website?

VRROOM is expected to ship in November. Pre-orders should open up soon. The price listed is the initial pre-order price for the first 100 units ordered. The price will rise as more are ordered; eventually to $499 after 500 are sold I believe. You probably need to be a subscriber to the HDfury Discord support server in order to grab one at the lowest pre-order price.

Note that the VRROOM won't include Diva-like Ambilight support; there may be a later device to replace the Diva. It will be more like the Vertex 2 but with HDMI 2.1 ports with 4K120 and VRR support. And will feature an eARC port like the Arcana as well as an HDMI audio output.

If the 8K devices are going up in price I assume the 4K ones will stay put then? Do you know?

Is the note about "FRL6: 48Gbps/1500MHz under testing" something that may or may not happen down the line and if so what additional features would it allow? With the new chipset, is the upscaler confirmed to have full 4:4:4 processing? There is also a note that DSC1.2a is that referring to support for Display Stream Compression (DSC)?

Thanks to a post from claw in another thread, I pre-ordered myself a Vrroom. Thanks, claw! :) I'm not currently setup for HDMI 2.1 but at some point I will be and it'll help me avoid having to replace my AVR immediately. Plus all the other things I already use my Integral 2 for. Can't wait!

The Vertex 2 did not have the horsepower to do Aspect Ratio detection. Will the new device be able to offer such a feature? Right now that is the only reason I would have to upgrade.
No answer for that, too early in FW dev to tell. Coding the basics cores atm

FRL6 is not confirmed because we don't have yet any source/display combo to confirm or prove it yet.
So technically it is supported, yet without real end users sources and displays available, we cannot confirm it, should happen soon.
Yes DSC1.2a is Display Stream Compression, no source or display available here as well to confirm but since we only pass thru in this case, we should be totally fine.
I doubt processing is 4:4:4 (it is usually done with a free lane for color depth, so chroma usually top at 4:2:2) since it would be a waste of resources as there is no 4:4:4 content out there for the public, yet we could still end up nicely surprised but it would need some serious measurements tool to confirm.
All questions here cannot be answered today, too early in FW dev and not enough capable equipment available to confirm any of these yet.

4K/120Hz/4:4:4/12bit is 40Gbps and Vrroom is advertised as 40Gbps so it should be able to support it. Hopefully HDfury staff will reply to confirm for you.
4:4:4 10-bit would be 40 Gbps, but I believe 4:4:4 12-bit would be 48 Gbps. HDfury has had difficulty finding source devices that will output a 48 Gbps signal. Probably not reporting 48 Gbps formats as supported for this reason. Verify before claiming support.
