Silicon Image originally demonstrated a mobile interconnect, based on its transition-minimized differential signaling (TMDS) technology, at the January 2008 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). This interface was termed "Mobile High Definition Link" at the time of the demonstration, and is a direct precursor of the implementation announced by the MHL Consortium. The company is quoted as saying it did not ship that original technology in any volume, but used it as a way to get the working group started.

A Working Group was announced in September 2009, the MHL Consortium was founded in April 2010 Nokia, Samsung, Silicon Image, Sony and Toshiba, the MHL specification version 1.0 was released in June 2010 and May 2011 marked the first retail availability of MHL-enabled products.
