Get your content streaming with ease from your smartphone to your monitor, using the PipeLine ET-5 MHL to HDMI Cable. This cable puts together any MHL-enabled device (like a smartphone or tablet) to HDMI-enabled devices. You can stream your audio/video content onto an HDTV, a monitor - the choice is yours! It's perfect if you own an Android-based device, like an HTC or LG phone, and comes with an adaptor built to work for compatible Samsung devices.
PipeLine ET-5 MHL-HDMI Cable Features:
- Watch the content from your smartphone on a larger, higher definition screen
- Connect your devices made by HTC, LG, Lenovo, and more (including Samsung with the adaptor)
- Made with solid conductors for a healthier stream of data
Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) is an audio/video interface that makes it easy to connect an MHL-enabled smartphone or tablet to MHL-enabled HDTVs and displays. The MHL digital audio/video signal is outputted through the mobile device’s Micro-USB connector. PipeLine’s low-distortion high-performance ET-5 MHL->HDMI* cable carries all your precious audio and video to an MHL-enabled HDMI input on a display or monitor, simple as that!
ET-5’s Solid Silver-Clad Copper conductors provide superior low-distortion audio and video. PipeLine ET-5 MHL->HDMI* Cable can be used with MHL-enabled devices made by HTC, LG, Meizu, Pantech, Huawei and Lenovo. The included adaptor ensures compatibility with all Samsung MHL-enabled phones.
Metal: Conductor quality is critically important for any audio or video cable. Pipeline’s High-Purity, High-Performance Copper (HPPC) has fewer impurities for improved clarity and naturalness. For the higher signal speed demands of digital cables such as HDMI and USB, Pipeline’s Silver-Clad Copper (SCC) provides exceptional performance by adding a layer of fine silver on the surface of the conductor.
Stranded vs. Solid: In addition to the harshness caused by bare strands contacting each other, the magnetic fields of the various strands constantly interacting leads to a confused and “out-of-focus” sonic presentation. The Concentric-Conductor Construction (CCC) of Pipeline speaker cable nearly eliminates these problems. Solid conductors (as used in Pipeline HDMI, USB and Audio Interconnect cable) are the complete solution.
Cable Geometry: Any cable with two our more individual conductors (positive and negative paths) requires that special attention be paid to the physical relationship between the conductors. Geometry will dictate parameters such as capacitance, inductance, and magnetic interaction. PipeLine uses carefully implemented controlled-construction techniques to ensure that properly optimized and consistent geometry are maintained throughout the cable design.
“Skin-Effect”: The well-recognized (but often misunderstood) phenomenon of “skin-effect” refers to the phenomenon of high frequency energy travelling primarily on the surface of a conductor. Skin-effect also encourages current to jump from strand to strand, causing harshness to the sound.
Insulation: The insulation surrounding all conductors is crucial because the positive and negative conductors have to be kept apart. The downside is that whenever current is present, insulation has some effect on the cable’s performance. In order to limit any effect (distortion), Pipeline uses low-loss Polyethylene insulation for all analog interconnects, speaker cables, and power cables. For high-speed digital and video interconnects Pipeline chooses to use an extremely hard insulation because this reinforces the geometric relationship among conductors, an essential element to maintaining a constant impedance over the entire length of the cable
Directions: Remove the plastic protectors on the MHL and HDMI ends of the cable. Insert the MHL connector into your mobile device’s MHL port and the HDMI connector into the HDMI port on your HDTV or monitor.
