Kanex MHL HDMI Adapter Now Available
Brea, CA – August 30, 2011 – Kanex, makers of innovative connectivity solutions to enhance media transfer and sharing, is excited to announce the availability of its new MHL HDMI Adapter. With companies such as Nokia, Samsung, Toshiba, and Sony using MHL connections on most of their devices, such as the Galaxy SII and HTC EVO, MHL is said to become the new industry standard for audio/video interface to connect mobile phones to HD TVs and displays.
The new state of the art MHL HDMI Adapter allows users to view videos, games, photos and other media from their mobile device directly onto an HDTV in high definition (HD) 1080p at 60Hz picture quality and 7.1 channel surround sound.
The MHL HDMI Adapter utilizes the phone's existing micro USB port to create a HDMI interface from the portable device while simultaneously charging it. The mobile device will mirror the content to the HDTV, and will enable operation of the mobile device in MHL mode so users can continue to receive calls, email and more.
