MHL Consortium Showcases Latest superMHL Innovations at CES 2016


MHL Consortium will have the latest superMHL™ innovations on display at CES 2016. For the first time, attendees will be able to get hands-on with a complete 8K home entertainment system powered by superMHL technology. MHL’s latest specification supports advanced color and High Dynamic Range (HDR), which ensures that the picture not only packs in more pixels, but that the colors are deeper and brighter to deliver a more true-to-life image. Sound quality also gets a boost with object audio support.

“Home theater owners seek the best in picture quality to complement their sound set-up. They tend to own larger screens and be relatively high consumers of movie content. This has already led to comparatively high take-up of 4K, so 8K could prove to be the next logical upgrade for them,” said Jack Wetherill, senior market analyst of home electronics at Futuresource. “As we have seen with 4K, the right connectivity is essential in delivering content to sets, so superMHL technology will have a key role to play in the delivery of 8K.”

Live Larger – 98” LG 8K SUPER UHD TV

superMHL technology on LG’s new 8K SUPER UHD TV will be showcased in MHL’s booth. The 98UH9800 delivers stunning 8K content and immersive audio, which inspires tomorrow’s living room. LG’s adoption of superMHL technology strengthens MHL® as an innovative audio and video connectivity standards leader able to meet the ever changing demands of the home theater market.

Connect More With Less – superMHL Accessories

To support 8K and advanced audio/video features, MHL developed the 32 pin superMHL connector that can carry concurrent audio, video, data and power all through a slim, reversible, consumer-friendly design. MHL Adopters, JCE and KinnexA, will be showcasing superMHL accessories that will enable consumers to seamlessly connect their mobile devices, set-top boxes (STBs), Blu-ray Disc™ players, AVRs, streaming media sticks and other source devices to TVs and displays.

The superMHL specification supports the following features:

  • 8K video
  • Deep Color
  • Wider color gamut to view content the way filmmakers intended
  • High-Dynamic Range (HDR) to strike the perfect balance of bright spectral highlights along with shadow details
  • Immersive surround sound with support for Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, and an audio only mode
  • Power charging up to 40W
  • Reversible superMHL connector

The Ubiquity of 900 Million MHL Products

MHL now has an installed base of 900 million products globally, and companies continue to release new products at a steady pace. The superMHL specification is backward-compatible with previous MHL 1, 2 and 3 versions, making the connection possibilities endless.

“The MHL standard enables people to create and connect by sharing their digital lives to the big screen. The products we’re showcasing at CES add to the momentum first started with Samsung’s superMHL prototype demonstration last year,” said Gordon Hands, president, MHL, LLC. “This growing support from leading companies is creating a vibrant superMHL ecosystem.”

FAA Approves AerTrakTM to Comply with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Operations Mandate19.3.2018 18:19Pressemelding

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for installation of AerSale®’s AerTrak™ system on Boeing 737 NG series aircraft (ST04009NY), to comply with the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Operations rule, a critical part of the agency’s Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). Beginning January 1, 2020, the FAA has mandated that aircraft operating in airspace defined by 14 CFR § 91.225 must be equipped with an ADS-B Out system that meets the minimum performance requirements of 14 CFR § 91.227. ADS-B provides enhanced navigational accuracy using precise tracking via global positioning satellite (GPS) signals. Reducing risk and improving safety, the technology increases navigational coverage, especially in remote areas beyond radar range. Additionally, ADS-B enables more direct flight plans, thereby saving time, costs, and reducing emissions. “AerTrak is a cost-effective ADS-B Out solution for operators of Boei
