Watching HD content on smartphones is on the rise. All over the world, reports suggest that users have started storing and watching high quality, high definition content on their mobile device and this has opened up new revenue streams for companies in this market.
Analogix Semiconductor has announced that the company has added a SlimPort HDTV cable to its portfolio of SlimPort accessories. Now, the users of the Google (News - Alert) Nexus 4 smartphone or the SlimPort technology-enabled MYDP mobile device can make use of just a plug to connect their devices to any HDMI monitors or TVs.
SlimPort allows the users to transfer full HD resolution content of various types to any size screen. According to the company, this feature allows the users to save battery power and makes watching the HD content more enjoyable.
150cm in length, SlimPort HDTV cable offers support for 1080p resolutions and 7.1 channel HDMI audio, a perfect combination to enjoy HD content. It makes use of DisplayPort technology and supports Mobility DisplayPort (MyDP) standard. The cable comes with FCC (News - Alert) and CE certifications and one year warranty.
DisplayPort technology allows users to send state of the art digital links in order to send audio and video to any screen that supports high resolution playback. But the high resolution playback does not mean that it will consume more battery. In fact, the company claims that DisplayPort technology consumes only a fraction of battery power to display its high definition content.
“Unlocking your media from the smartphone is as simple as a single, lightweight cable,” said Andre Bouwer, vice president of marketing for Analogix. “This sleek connector allows you to get maximum productivity and enjoyment from your device and will quickly go everywhere you go.”
Recently, the company announced that the Optimus G Pro will feature its SlimPort technology.
