Will the Nintendo Switch work with Elgato Gaming products?

The Nintendo Switch console will be released on March 3, 2017, and will come with a Dock (base station), that has HDMI out.

If that Dock does not use HDCP (content protection) for the HDMI out, then the Nintendo Switch will be able to work with any Elgato Gaming product.

At this time Nintendo has not revealed whether HDCP will be used or not.

That said, the Wii U did not use HDCP for gameplay.
