Stocks in this article: SIMG

Silicon Image, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIMG), a leading provider of HD connectivity solutions, today announced the expansion of its MHL ® (Mobile High-Definition Link) portfolio with four new products—the SiI8558 MHL transmitter, the SiI9296 MHL-to-HDMI bridge, the SiI1296 MHL-to-VGA bridge, and the SiI9293 dual-mode MHL/HDMI ® receiver—all of which supports the highest digital A/V capabilities and incorporate features defined in the latest MHL specification version 2.0.

MHL, LLC, the entity overseeing and administering the adoption, licensing, and promotion of the MHL specification, estimates that by the end of 2012 more than 200 million MHL-enabled products will have shipped worldwide since the inception of the standard. Silicon Image’s newly announced suite of MHL 2.0 products will enable the next generation of MHL products and accessories to reach the market starting in 2013, continuing to expand the number and types of devices in the MHL ecosystem.

“In addition to today’s hottest smartphones, PC monitors, and DTVs, MHL technology is finding its way into other innovative products including automotive infotainment systems, A/V receivers, Blu-ray players, pico projectors, accessories, and many consumer media devices,” said David Kuo, director of product marketing at Silicon Image, Inc. “As a leader in developing HD connectivity solutions, Silicon Image continues to deliver new optimized, feature-enhanced MHL ICs for the latest worldwide mobile and CE products.”

About MHL 1.0 and 2.0:

MHL technology allows consumers to transmit and share multimedia content – such as HD videos, photos, apps and games – from their mobile device to the big screen. MHL-enabled DTVs and displays provide power to charge the mobile device when connected, ensuring that the devices battery is charged and ready to use even after viewing a full-length HD movie. With Remote Control Protocol (RCP), consumers can use the DTV remote to control content from the mobile device.
