Nokia, Samsung Electronics, Silicon Image, Sony and Toshiba have formed a Mobile HD Interface Working Group for the creation of an industry standard defining an A/V interface to connect mobile phones or portable CE devices directly to HDTVs and displays. The new mobile connectivity standard will be based on Silicon Image's Mobile HD Link (MHL) technology. The Working Group will define, promote and market it as an industry standard open to anyone desiring to be an adopter, and enable the development of mobile products that adhere to this new standard across a broad connectivity ecosystem.

The group's vision for the next generation of mobile connectivity is to provide an easy and cost-effective implementation for manufacturers while offering consumers a simple and reliable mobile connectivity experience. A single-cable with a low pin count interface will be able to support up to 1,080p HD digital video and HD audio in addition to delivering power to a portable device.

The group will also organise a consortium of founding members who will develop a mobile connectivity technology standard specification that governs transmission and reception of HD content between portable devices and display devices, to support connectivity in accordance with the new specification.
