More than 650 million MHL products have shipped worldwide since the first MHL products were released in 2011 (as I filmed my first MHL video in 2011). The global MHL ecosystem includes adapters, automotive accessories, A/V receivers, Blu-ray Disc players, cables, DTVs, monitors, projectors, smartphones, streaming media sticks, tablets and more. A steady stream of MHL 3.0 mobile devices that output 4K Ultra HD video have been released this year, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Sony Xperia Z2 and Z3, and ZTE nubia Z7, along with MHL 3.0 4K Ultra HD displays from Samsung and Sony. 4K is rapidly growing in popularity and, with these MHL 3.0 smartphones, consumers can capture brilliant photos and videos and then enjoy them in full 4K Ultra HD quality on their new big screen 4K TV. In part thanks to MHL and thanks to the newest ARM Processors from Qualcomm and others, already now there are tens of millions of consumers with 4K Camcorders and 4K video players directly within their smartphone in their pocket!

When I was traveling in the USA last week, I had the chance to catch up with Sri who gave me a detailed description of what Kent Displays is doing with its latest Cholesteric LCD for writing applications. Kent Displays is famous for its Boogie Board which he said was being shipped in millions of units and they are now using the same technology to build mobile phone accessories where you can eWrite on the cover, this technology can be used to create electronic writing surfaces on laptops, tablets, appliances, educational toys etc. This LCD technology is well proven, they make them in a roll to roll coating factory in Ohio, the displays are very thin, flexible, light, very nicely visible in bright sunlight as you can see here filmed near the San Francisco bay (sorry about the wind), the writing is similar to paper, the 8” display with a small battery works for an impressive 7 years, means charging isn't even required.
