"With SlimPort-4K the video output capabilities of smart phones and tablets surpass that of most mainstream Blu-ray video players"

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Analogix Semiconductor, Inc., today announced the availability of its highly integrated SlimPort-4K product line, which allows users to share content from their mobile devices on external displays at up to 4K Ultra-HD resolution, with 3D graphics and audio.

Analogix’s high-speed, ultra-low power SlimPort-4K transmitter, ANX7816, is in mass production and the SlimPort-4K receiver, ANX7738, is sampling.

SlimPort components and adaptors are DisplayPort (DP1.2/MyDP1.0) certified. The DisplayPort standard provides for even higher frequencies and Analogix is already developing the next generation of SlimPort® transmitters that will support 4K at 60 frames per second – which provides the smooth, life-like cinematic experience desired by movie viewers.

“With SlimPort-4K the video output capabilities of smart phones and tablets surpass that of most mainstream Blu-ray video players,” said Andre Bouwer, vice president of Marketing for Analogix. “This gives smart phone owners the flexibility to watch movies on their small screen when on the go, or on the big screen when at home and recharging their batteries without compromising video quality.”

The SlimPort-4K transmitters and receivers have versions supporting the latest High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP2.2) encryption standard, so content owners are assured their copyrights are secure.

With numerous manufacturers having introduced SlimPort-enabled products in a variety of form factors, supporting multiple system processors and operating systems, as well as accessory manufacturers rolling out an assortment of adaptors to connect SlimPort-enabled devices to larger displays, SlimPort® is becoming the de-facto mobile interface solution for display, data and charging over mobile USB connectors.

The SlimPort transmitters integrate all of the components needed in the smart phone into a single chip. This reduces the system cost so that SlimPort can be added to mainstream mobile devices without compromising the user experience.
