HIGH-DEF­I­NI­TION WORLD

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES TRENDS -

Af­ter the iphone came into ex­is­tence, the mo­bile space has turned up­side down. Dis­plays that can play Full HD con­tent cap­tured at 1080p res­o­lu­tion have since be­come the norm. What is more im­pres­sive is the abil­ity to cap­ture Full HD video with the phone’s cam­era. There is more. Imag­ine you have a pre­sen­ta­tion or a Full HD video on your phone which you need to show to your boss. You can al­ways show it on the phone or trans­fer it to a PC. Now, you can also use the phone’s HDMI con­nec­tiv­ity op­tion to beam con­tent straight to an HD TV. The mini­hdmi ports are slowly be­ing re­placed by the new in­dus­try stan­dard, MHL. The Mo­bile High-def­i­ni­tion Link spec­i­fi­ca­tion looks sim­i­lar to a mi­crousb port. The spec­i­fi­ca­tion is back­ward com­pat­i­ble and the same port can be used for charg­ing the phone as well as con­nect­ing it to a com­puter. The Sam­sung Gal­axy SII had the MHL port, so does the HTC One X. An­other ben­e­fit is that the phone can get charged while con­nected to the TV, though not all ca­bles sup­port this fea­ture. How­ever, nei­ther the MHL con­nec­tor or cable are in­cluded in the sales box as it is slightly ex­pen­sive at the mo­ment. A lo­cal MHL con­nec­tor might cost close to 600 and an MHL cable could

` come for 750 and go up to a few thou­sands.
