周辺機器メーカーの Kanex が SlimPort to HDMI アダプタを発売しました。SlimPort は DisplayPort のモバイル機器向けバリエーションで、マイクロUSB端子からDisplayPort や HDMI、VGA信号と最大8チャンネル音声を外部ディスプレイやスピーカーに出力する規格。

現行の端末ではLG の Optimus G Pro と兄弟機 Google Nexus 4、先日発売されたばかりの 新 Nexus 7 などが対応します。
Kanex SlimPort to HDMI アダプタの仕様は端末側が SlimPort対応マイクロUSB端子(5ピン)、ディスプレイ側がHDMI出力ポート、および映像出力と同時に端末を充電するためのマイクロUSBポート。ケーブル長は12インチ / 約30cm。

製品ページの互換性リストには、Nexus 4 / Optimus G Pro と新 Nexus 7 のほか、ASUS PadFone Infinity、富士通 Stylistic QH582 (Windows 8搭載のArrows Tab Wi-Fi QH55/J。SlimPort出力と同時の充電は非対応) が挙げられています。価格は29.95ドル。

また Kanex は、SlimPort とは非互換ながら良く似た規格 MHL 2.0 (11ピン)対応の HDMI アダプタも同時に発売しています。こちらは Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 2 対応。MHL対応HDMI端子から端末に給電できるほか、アダプタにもマイクロUSB端子を搭載します。価格は同じ29.95ドル。

用途としてはほぼ同じでややこしい両規格ですが、SlimPort のほうは実装により出力先にHDMI以外のDisplayPort や VGA なども選べること、動作に外部電源を必要としないこと、規格としては20Gbps の広帯域に対応することなどが特徴です。
