Digital visual interface (DVI) and high definition multimedia interface (HDMI) are both experiencing record growth, but the future is much brighter for HDMI, reports In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com). HDMI-enabled device shipments will grow 78% per year through 2010, while DVI will begin to decline in 2007, the high-tech market research firm says. DVI and HDMI are both high-bandwidth digital interface specifications. DVI is aimed primarily at PCs and peripherals, while HDMI is aimed at the consumer electronics (CE) market.
HDMI has become the dominant digital interface in the CE market, first by being designed into digital televisions (DTVs), and recently gaining design wins in devices that connect to DTVs, including set top boxes, DVD players, A/V receivers and game consoles. HDMI is also gaining traction in the PC market among more mediacentric notebook and desktop models.
Recent research by In-Stat found the following:
- DisplayPort will succeed DVI & VGA in the PC market.
- Over 90 million DVI-enabled products shipped in 2005, more than in any previous year.
- Wireless is beginning to make itself felt in this segment, a trend that will intensify over the next two to four years.
The research, “DVI and HDMI 2006: DisplayPort Will Succeed DVI, Smooth Sailing for HDMI” (#IN0602969MI), contains analysis and five-year annual forecasts for the penetration of DVI and HDMI into 20 different applications in PCs, PC peripherals, and CE. Five-year average selling price forecasts for discrete DVI and HDMI transmitters and receivers are provided. Past history of penetration forecasts back to 2004 is also included, in addition to brief profiles of major DVI and HDMI silicon suppliers.
