involvement in the deployment of the HDMI technology standard, which was
widely adopted by Chinese consumer electronics manufacturers, who represent
more than 30% of the worldwide HDMI Adopter base. Over the last two years,
Silicon Image products based on the MHL^® mobile connectivity standard have
also been integrated by a number of mobile device manufacturers in China.

promoting HD connectivity standards in China and working with Chinese CE
manufacturers on the development of standards-compliant products,” said
