The DVI interface, popular for years on computer and some TV displays will decline sharply in its device shipments, from 112 million in 2007 to just 3 million in 2011, according to research released by In-Stat on Monday. HDMI and DisplayPort will replace it.
"HDMI?s success continues to be enormous, especially in the Consumer Electronics (CE) segment," said Brian O?Rourke, In-Stat analyst. "Close to 90% of digital television (DTV) shipments in 2007 are expected to include HDMI. In addition, HDMI penetration of large markets such as set top boxes continues to increase."
Research by In-Stat found the following:
- 143 million HDMI-enabled devices will ship in 2007.
- DVI-enabled device shipments will decline sharply through 2011, due primarily to competition from DisplayPort.
- Several PC original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) released HDMI-enabled mediacentric notebook PCs in 2007, including Toshiba, Sony and Hewlett-Packard.
DisplayPort is a new interface standard that is used primarily to connect a computer to its dispay or a computer to a home theater system. It is a competitor to HDMI and, like HDMI, also includes HDCP. It is supported by AMD, Intel, HP, Lenovo, Samsung and others.
