Mobile High-Definition: 1 More Cable to Sell with Every Job
Mobile High-Definition (MHL) cables should be an easy attachment sale for every installation to allow smart phone and tablet source connectivity into a full-featured home entertainment system.
Who doesn’t want to sell one more cable and make some more money on every job? For integrators looking to add one more easy-to-sell cable to every sale, take a quick look at the Mobile High-Definition (MHL) category.
Accell, for example, has announced the addition of its new certified MHL cables that transmit uncompressed audio and video, allowing users to play games, watch movies or listen to music on an MHL-supported DTV, PC monitor or A/V receiver.
Accell’s lightweight MHL cable fits into the port of an MHL-enabled smartphone or tablet, directly connecting it to an MHL-enabled display or receiver.
“It’s been great to see more companies such as Accell developing thin, lightweight and portable cables. Consumers can carry these accessories wherever life takes them, seamlessly connecting mobile devices to larger displays,” says Michael Bergen, senior partner alliance manager, MHL, LLC. “Share photos with friends and family, play games with no lag and update presentations from hotel rooms to boardrooms – that’s the beauty of MHL.”
- Content displayed from smartphone or tablet onto a DTV
- Power charging of connected device while in use
- Connected device can be controlled by using the TV’s remote
- Supports up to 1080p resolution and 7:1 channel audio
- MHL compliant – tested and certified by MHL-approved testing center
The cables support MHL-enabled display devices and A/V receivers featuring an MHL input. Available in 6.6 ft. (2m) and 10 ft. (3m) versions, with an MSRP of $17.99 and $21.99.
