Silicon Image Enables MHL® Connectivity Across Sony’s BRAVIA® DTV Line

Latest Dual-Mode MHL/HDMI® Port Processor Design Win Brings MHL Functionality to Mainstream DTV Model

SUNNYVALE, Calif. (BUSINESS WIRE) August 12, 2013 --  Silicon Image ( SIMG), a leading provider of HD connectivity solutions, today announced that its MHL®/HDMI® dual-mode connectivity products have been designed across a broad lineup of Sony BRAVIA® TVs.

MHL technology enables TVs and monitors to receive up to 60 frames per second of uncompressed 1080p video with up to eight channels of digital audio from mobile devices, while simultaneously charging the device. Mobile devices can use MHL to transmit HD games, Blu-ray™ quality video and digital audio to a TV, or function as a laptop replacement with productivity applications like word processors and spreadsheets when connected to high-resolution monitors. Consumers can control MHL-enabled mobile devices using the existing TV remote or a traditional keyboard and mouse.

Since the introduction of the first MHL-enabled devices two years ago, the MHL ecosystem has continued to grow rapidly and now has an installed base of more than 330 million products worldwide. MHL-enabled products include smartphones, tablets, TVs, TV accessories, Blu-ray Disc players, audio/video (A/V) receivers, monitors, projectors, adapters, automotive accessories, cables, and more.

“MHL has quickly become the fastest growing HD connectivity standard for the next generation of video applications and we are pleased that a Tier 1 brand such as Sony has broadly deployed MHL technology in their 2013 models,” said Alex Chervet, senior director of marketing at Silicon Image, Inc. “By including MHL technology throughout the BRAVIA line, Sony again demonstrates their commitment to delivering products that exceed consumer expectations.”
