"At some point, the output has to be "played" and when it is, the potential for copying is there, no matter how hard "they" try to stop it."

Not necessarily. 4K BluRay players haven't been cracked AFAIK because they demand locked-down dedicated players AND protected hardware paths from end to end. That includes the TV (splitters can be detected and blocked with HDMI 2.0+ IIRC), and 4K home cameras aren't available yet, probably won't until there's a watermark detector, AND in any event "screeners" are usually the purview of the desperate.
