    This site: http://www.digital-cp.com/ will tell you all you need to know about HDCP.

    A scaler will take an incoming video source and convert the output to match the resolution of the display device. i.e. it will take, for example, a PLA signal with 576 lines anc 'scale' it to fit the number of lines of the display device by either adding information if the display has a greater vertical resolution or removing information if there are fewer lines.

    Plasmas and LCD's come with scalers built in but an external scaler will yield better results.
