With 3D-ready TVs on the rise, movie studios are bringing 3D content from cinemas to the home. This trend is also empowering the next evolution of 3D�3D on mobile devices. In-Stat projects that the number of 3D-enabled mobile devices shipped in 2014 will hit over 6 crore units.

Senior Analyst for In-Stat, Stephanie Ethier explains, "Due to advancements in autostereoscopic 3D technology, a type of 3D technology that does not require glasses to view 3D images, 3D technology is finding its way into mobile devices. The more predictable viewing distance of mobile devices enables a compelling and convenient 3D experience. Additionally, many of the chipsets found in today's smartphones have the processing power to handle 3D content; therefore the smartphones promise the largest opportunity for mobile 3D technology suppliers over the next five years."

Pertinent research findings uncover particular information, such as: autostereoscopic 3D is necessary for 3D mobile device consumer acceptance; by 2012, 3D-enabled smartphones would represent 45 per cent of all 3D-enabled mobile devices shipments; penetration rates shall be highest in the handheld game console market segment; Tablets, smartphones, and handheld game consoles, shall incorporate 3D more quickly than other portable devices.
