Of course, as usual, Apple says nothing about features that MAY be present, but they don't support. All I can see from that small photo is the two DVI connectors out the back, which tells us nothing we want to know about this.
HDCP, that's the DRM that must be supported (at least in theory). do these cards support that? They must, for playback. I remember all of the discussions about this late 2006, throughout 2007 of which cards supported it. Most didn't. I'm not sure how many do now.
But Apple has a bad habit of not supporting board features.
With ATI, you could see that clearly (oh, darn, another pun!). With Apple, the board came with no software, and only was supported by the basic choices in the prefs panel.
But when you bought an ATi instead, you got the control panels which supported the turning on or off of all the features the PC cards had.
