HDMI Alt Mode for USB Type-C™ Connector​

HDMI Alt Mode for USB Type-C™ Connector


The HDMI Alt Mode for USB Type-C connector will allow HDMI-enabled source devices to utilize a USB Type-C connector to directly connect to HDMI-enabled displays, and deliver native HDMI signals over a simple cable without the need for protocol and connector adapters or dongles.

This enables two of the most popular solutions for connectivity to come together—the small form factor, reversible, and multi-purpose USB Type-C connector being adopted by smartphones, tablets and PC products, and HDMI, which is the leading display interface with an installed base of billions of displays. Almost 290 million HDMI-enabled display devices are expected to ship in 2016, including projectors, monitors and 100 percent of flat panel TVs.

HDMI Alt Mode will support the full range of HDMI 1.4b features such as:

  • Resolutions up to 4K
  • Surround sound
  • Audio Return Channel (ARC)
  • 3D (4K and HD)
  • HDMI Ethernet Channel (HEC)
  • Consumer Electronic Control (CEC)
  • Deep Color, x.v.Color, and content types
  • High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP 1.4 and HDCP 2.2)

It’s up to manufacturers to choose which HDMI features they support on their products with USB Type-C.























MHL3.0 Supports 4K

MHL 3.0 does 4K video output
索尼新旗舰演示MHL 3.0:轻松搞定4K

You may have already followed the announcement of Sony's Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet, but did you know that they are also the first mobile devices to feature MHL 3.0? For those who haven't caught up, this standard allows 4K video output -- over a bandwidth of 6 Gbps -- from a micro-USB port, while giving back up to 10W of power to keep your phone or tablet juiced up. Better yet, you also get a dedicated 75 Mbps channel for data transfer, as opposed to just 1 Mbps in earlier versions, which is only enough for HID input (like keyboard, touch screen, mouse and even gesture control). It's still snail pace compared to the likes of USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt, but at least you can now transfer files to and from your mobile device over the same cable. Besides, it's possible to achieve a higher transfer rate of up to 600 Mbps using special connectors, such as USB 3.0's 10-pin configuration.

At MWC, Silicon Image demoed MHL 3.0 -- powered by its SiI8620 transmitter chip -- working between an Xperia Z2 and a Sony 4K TV, with the bonus capability of navigating through the phone using the TV's remote. The company also showed off file transfer between a USB drive and a Snapdragon 800 development board over MHL 3.0, though products (likely monitors, set-top boxes and docks) that support this feature won't be out until later this year.

索尼发布了新款旗舰手机Xperia Z2和新款轻薄平板Xperia Z2 Tablet,但你可能不知道的是,它们还是首款支持MHL 3.0标准的移动设备。


MHL 3.0接口标准已经发布半年了,为了在移动设备上抵抗HDMI而做了大幅改进,包括支持2160p/30fps 4K超高清输出、最高10W功率充电、增强的7.1声道环绕音效、改进远程控制协议(RCP)支持键盘/鼠标/触摸屏等外设、接口简化等等。事实上,MHL 3.0并不需要专门的接口,可以和流行的microUSB、USB共存,特别是如果使用USB 3.0 10针特殊接口可以最高达到600Mbps,传输4K毫无压力。MHL 3.0还分配了75Mbps的专用数据传输通道,而不像旧版规范哪样仅仅1Mbps。

Silicon Image日前就首次展示了MHL 3.0的实际工作效果,使用了索尼的Xperia Z2手机和一台4K电视,顺利传输超高清内容的同时,还可以使用遥控器在手机上导航。同时展示的还有在U盘和骁龙800开发平台之间通过MHL 3.0传输文件,不过这个功能要到今年晚些时候才会有产品支持。

• Simultaneous high-speed data channel 
• Improved Remote Control Protocol (RCP) with support for peripherals such as a touch screen, keyboard and mouse 
• Power charging up to 10W 
• Backward compatible with MHL 1 and MHL 2
• Latest HDCP 2.2 content protection
