HDMI technology penetrates mobile phone market

In-Stat reports that with the shipping of over 35 crore CE devices featuring the HDMI interface in 2010, the mobile phone market is not far behind. HDMI technology has now started to penetrate the mobile phone market with more than 10 lakh HDMI-enabled handsets shipped in 2010.

In-Stat noted that the mobile phone market is perhaps the single biggest market for consumer technology devices, so it makes sense that HDMI chip manufacturers are trying to get a foot in. HDMI on mobile phones enables media-centric phones such as HD-enabled camera phones to connect to displays, including HDMI-enabled digital televisions.

"The emergence of phones that can capture 720p HD video has helped HDMI gain penetration over the last year," said Brian O'Rourke, principal analyst, In-Stat, in a report. "HDMI faces significant challenges in this market, however. First, phone vendors and wireless service providers must be convinced to include an additional port on their devices. Second, HDMI faces increased competition from new interfaces such as the Mobile High-definition Link (MHL)."

In-Stat also said that overall HDMI device shipments will increase by 20.8 per cent annually through 2014, with HDMI gaining traction in mobile PCs, graphics cards, and PC monitors. DVI device shipments will increase through 2011, but will start to decline slowly after due to competition from both DisplayPort and HDMI.
