MHL Consortium showcased the latest superMHL innovations at CES 2016. For the first time, attendees will be able to get hands-on with a complete 8K home entertainment system powered by superMHL technology.
MHL’s latest specifications supports advanced color and High Dynamic Range (HDR) which insures that the picture not only packs in more pixels, but that the colors are deeper and brighter to deliver a more true-to-life image. Sound quality also gets a boost with object audio support.
The 98” LG 8K SUPER UHD TV (98UH9800) delivers stunning 8K content and immersive audio. LG’s adoption of superMHL technology strengthens MHL as an innovative audio and video connectivity standards leader able to meet the ever changing demands of the home theater market.
To support 8K and advanced audio/video features, MHL developed the 32 pin superMHL connector that can carry concurrent audio, video, data and power all through a slim, reversible, consumer-friendly design. MHL Adopters, JCE and KinnexA, will be showcasing superMHL accessories that will enable consumers to seamlessly connect their mobile devices, set-top boxes (STBs), Blu-ray Disc players, AVRs, streaming media sticks, and other source devices to TVs and displays.
The superMHL specification supports the following features:
* 8K video
* Deep Color
* Wider color gamut to view content the way filmmakers intended
* High-Dynamic Range (HDR) to strike the perfect balance of bright spectral highlights along with shadow details
* Immersive surround sound with support for Dolby Digital, DTS, and an audio only mode
