HDMI Connectivity Becoming More Common


HDMI Moves Beyond HDTVs to Set Top Boxes, DVD Equipment, Mobile PCs and More, According to In-Stat

As adoption of HDMI ports approaches 100% in digital televisions, the interface is now moving into set top boxes, DVD Equipment and Mobile PCs, reports In-Stat. Overall, HDMI-enabled product shipments will increase at an annual rate of 23% between 2007 and 2012.

A range of device segments spanning consumer electronics, computers and computer peripherals are seeing increased adoption of HDMI as well. In the near future, portable electronic devices, such as camcorders, digital still cameras, and portable media players (PMPs) will be among the emerging categories to watch.

“The rapid escalation of HDMI in standard-definition and Blue laser DVD players and recorders is directly related to HDMI’s success in DTVs,” says Brian O’Rourke, In-Stat analyst. “Set top boxes, which are traditionally slow to adopt new interfaces, are also increasingly embracing HDMI.”

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

  • HDMI adoption in mobile computers is estimated at nearly a quarter of all machines shipped in 2008.
  • IPTV set top boxes will see the highest adoption among pay TV set top boxes, growing to 85% penetration and 17.6 million boxes by 2012.
  • HDMI penetration in portable media players will approach 10% by 2012.
  • Rising adoption of HDMI and DisplayPort interfaces will negatively impact DVI adoption. DVI-enabled product shipments will decline at an annual rate of 30% through 2012.
  • Digital visual interface (DVI) and high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI), are related, high-bandwidth, unidirectional, uncompressed digital interface standards.

The research, DVI and HDMI 2008: A Time of Transition, covers the worldwide market for DVI and HDMI technologies. It contains:

  • Analysis and five-year annual worldwide forecasts for the penetration of DVI and HDMI into 22 different applications in PCs, PC peripherals, CE, and communications devices.
  • Five-year average selling price forecasts for discrete DVI and HDMI transmitters and receivers.
  • Past history of penetration forecasts back to 2006.
  • Brief profiles of major DVI and HDMI silicon and IP suppliers.
  • Survey data on HDMI familiarity and use from consumers in the US, UK, Germany, France, Japan, and Korea.
