HDMI’s Mini DisplayPort, Ruled Illegal

Written on July 13, 2011 by Adam Eve

HDMI Organization ruled the Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable as unlicensed.

The HDMI Organization, which is responsible for licensing the HDMI connection standard, stated that Mini DisplayPort to HDMI are unlicensed. That said, it should be immediately removed from sales. As explained by the organization:

“The HDMI specification defines an HDMI cable as having only HDMI connectors on the ends. Anything else is not a licensed use of the specification and therefore, not allowed.”

While the HDMI Organization acknowledged the market need for a cable solution, they are still pointing out that “at this time, there is no way to produce these cable products in a licensed manner.” However, cables with HDMI socket on one end and DisplayPort on the other – like the one pictured above – is fine, since it still requires a full-spec and properly tested HDMI cable.

Is the HDMI Organization move justifiable? Let your opinions be heard by leaving a comment.

Samsung Begins Mass Production of 22-inch Transparent LCD

Take a peek into the transparent future, as Samsung begins production of their backlight-less LCD screens.

Samsung has announced that they have started producing 22-inch transparent, yes transparent, LCD panels for this year. The company boasts that these LCD panels have the “world’s best transparency rate”, with 20% transparency for black-and-white type and over 15% for colored. That means you get to see clear images despite using only ambient light as a backlight for the screens, plus you get to use less electricity along the way.

The 22-inch screen will have a 1680×1050 resolution panel with a 500:1 contrast ratio, and will also be compatible with HDMI and USB. However, it looks like these will be used for advertising and corporate teleconferencing first, before letting the rest of the world take a crack at them.

The Consortium has spoken and the Samsung Galaxy S II heralds the arrival of the MHL.

We’re already impressed with the Samsung Galaxy S II as it is, but one tiny detail about Samsung’s latest Android phone went under our noses during the Mobile World Congress that’s probably just as important as the next feature, and that’s the MHL port. The Samsung Galaxy S II is the first smartphone to ever have the said port which switches the phone into USB data or MHL audio/video modes. A special 5-wire micro-USB to HDMI cable is provided to let you send video and audio to HDMI displays. The MHL cable also allows you to charge your smartphones to HDMI-enabled televisions, although no television is capable of doing that yet, perhaps in Q2 of 2011.

The MHL project was first announced way back in 2008 with the approval of a consoritium that is composed of Nokia, Samsung, Sony, Silicon Image, and Sony. Hit the break and watch the video to know more about the MHL.
