Today’s “Post PC Era” means smartphones and tablets are increasingly being used for gaming, watching videos, productivity applications and more. The advanced hardware and software integrated into the latest mobile products, however, limits the users’ experiences – as content can only be viewed on the mobile device’s small screen. Yet, there’s a new technology that allows the ultimate, interactive experience. MHL® technology delivers 1080p60Hz uncompressed video with up-to eight channels of digital audio packed into a low pin count, 5-pin interface that meets the mobile device’s low power requirements. MHL enables consumers to enjoy interactive applications such as gaming from their MHL-enabled device to an HDTV, while charging the mobile device. With introduction of the latest MHL 2.0 specification, higher power charging and technology required for transmission of 3D formats are supported.
Chandlee Harrell is the senior director of system architecture and technology for Silicon Image, overseeing the company’s standards activities and new technology development. He serves on the MHL Technical board and is actively engaged in new initiatives for the MHL standard and its burgeoning ecosystem.
Prior to joining Silicon Image, Mr. Harrell worked at Silicon Graphics and Bell Labs and has vast experience in digital video, imaging, 3D graphics, streaming networks and video coding. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from Brown University, and a Master of Science degree in electrical engineering / computer science from Stanford University.
