MHL Consortium Exceeds 100 Worldwide Adopters

Adopters Span a Broad Ecosystem of CE, Mobile, Semiconductor and Cable Manufacturers

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--MHL, LLC, the entity responsible for administering the MHL Consortium and the adoption, licensing and promotion of the MHL™ (Mobile High-Definition Link) specification, today announced that since the release of the first specification in June 2010, there are now more than 100 adopters (licensees) implementing the MHL standard worldwide, including a significant number of Global 500 companies. Products developed by these companies include adapters, automotive accessories, AV receivers, Blu-ray Disc™ players, cables, DTVs, monitors, projectors, smartphones, tablets, TV accessories and more. Since the retail introduction of the first MHL-enabled devices less than a year ago, the MHL ecosystem continues to grow with a steady stream of product announcements.


"In addition to more traditional use cases such as gaming, media entertainment and desktop productivity, it's been exciting to see companies finding unique ways to implement MHL technology, such as in-dash receivers," said Tim Wong, president of MHL, LLC. "Hitting the 100 adopter milestone within two years of inception is a remarkable achievement. This is another great validation of the many benefits of MHL technology, such as charging the device while connected and experiencing mobile content on a large screen without lag."

Using only five wires, MHL technology delivers 1080p uncompressed video with up to eight channels of digital audio while providing charge to the mobile device. Consumers can connect their MHL-enabled devices to the big screen to watch HD videos, play video games or work on business presentations. Consumers are also able to control MHL-enabled mobile devices using the existing DTV remote.
