The MHL Alternate Mode for USB 3.1 connects MHL-enabled source and display devices via a Type C USB port. The Standard was released on November 17, 2014 and is retrocompatible with the existing specifications of the MHL: MHL Support 1, 2, 3 and SuperMHL.  The standard supports simultaneous data transmission (at least USB 2.0 and according to video resolution: USB 3.1 Gen 1 or 2) and power charge (up to 40 W via USB Power Delivery) in addition to the MHL audio/video.  This allows the connection to the mobile/portable docks to be used to allow devices to connect to other devices while charging. The use of passive cables is possible if both devices support the standard, z.B. when connecting to superMHL, USB Type-C and MHL-compatible HDMI, otherwise an active cable adapter is required to establish a connection to standard HDMI devices.  The HDCP Licensing Agreement requires devices to be compliant, i.e. they meet the requirements of the HDCP specification and compliance test specifications. The license agreement does not require specific testing.
MHL is connected directly to display devices via special HDMI inputs that are capable of LHM or indirectly via standard HDMI inputs with MHL-to-HDMI adapters. MHL was developed by a consortium of five companies: Nokia, Samsung, Silicon Image, Sony and Toshiba. MHL is an HDMI customization for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.  Unlike DVI, which is compatible with HDMI only with passive cables and adapters, MHL requires the HDMI socket to be MHL-compatible, otherwise an active adapter is required to convert the signal to HDMI. It has several aspects in common with HDMI, such as the ability to carry encrypted hdCP uncompressed high-definition video, eight-channel surround sound and remote control of devices with consumer electronics control (CEC). The agreement applies from the last date set on the signature page and is still the date that DCP has countersigned. With an active adapter, MHL devices can connect to HDMI display devices that don`t have MHL functions by actively converting the signal to HDMI. These adapters often have an additional micro USB port to power the mobile device with charging energy, as standard HDMI ports do not provide enough electricity. No, if your agreement is terminated, you must restart the licensing process from the beginning. The Samsung Galaxy S III and later the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S4 use an 11-pin connector and six additional connectors to achieve functional improvements over the 5-pin design (such as the simultaneous use of the USB OTG). However, if consumers have a standard MHL-to-HDMI adapter, they just need to buy a tip.
With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung has also launched the MHL 2.0 smart adapter with 11-pole built-in connector. The first Samsung MHL 1.0 smart adapter, released with the Galaxy S III, requires external power supply and can work with HDMI TVs at 1080p at 24 Hz.  The MHL 2.0 adapter released with the Galaxy S4 can emit 1080p to 60 Hz and does not require external power. Passive cables allow mHL devices to connect directly to MHL-enabled TVs (i.e. display devices or AV receivers with MHL-enabled HDMI port) and provide a charge stream before the mobile device.
