ProDock is a new way of hooking up your mobile device to your TV. Many smartphones and tablets these days have mini HDMI ports, but ProDock goes one better with a 6 foot cable that plugs into the USB port on your device allowing you to then connect a full-size HDMI cable to the other end of the dock. With this added 6 feet of room you no longer have keep your phone uncomfortably close to your TV. There are a few things required though. First the device must have MHL built-in and the technology is fairly new, so only the latest Android smartphones currently have this. According to their literature,
“MHL is a high definition video and audio interface standard designed for connecting mobile devices to HD TVs. Supports up to 1080p HD video, 60 fps and digital audio output, Dolby 7.1 support. Technology was established by the MHL™ Consortium and is supported by multiple handset vendors.”
The current list price for the ProDock streamer kit is $49.95 and is available now from the manufacturer at ibolt.co.
