Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL)

Definition - What does Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) mean?

Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) refers to a worldwide standard of connecting a portable electronic device to a high-definition television (HDTV) or audio output device. Products such as adapters, audio-video receivers, accessories, CD players, DVD players, mobile phones, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, laptops, TV accessories, projectors and monitors are MHL-enabled.

Techopedia explains Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL)

Mobile High-Definition Link was introduced by Silicon Image in January 2008 to demonstrate mobile interconnection. The sole purpose of the technology was to help working groups connect various devices with minimum hassle. The technology was quickly adapted by many renowned brands and in June 2010, the MHL specification version 1.0 was released, with MHL-enabled products beginning to be sold to consumers in May 2011. This standard is now universally acknowledged as the only certified interfacing standard for high-definition video and digital audio with mobile smart devices, such as tablets and cell phones, with high-definition televisions and other personal entertainment products.
