SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Last year we saw a dramatic increase for HDMI in portable consumer devices, including HD camcorders and digital still cameras (DSC). In addition, on the PC side, HDMI’s share of mobile PCs, graphics cards, and PC monitors continued to increase. New In-Stat research, PC/Display Interface by Device, Q4’11 Forecast, forecasts that HDMI-enabled mobile PC shipments will surpass 300 million units in 2014.

“HDMI has made significant strides in mobile PCs over the past three years, since it has two big advantages in this market, says Brian O’Rourke, Research Director. “Its small size is a better fit for size-conscious mobile PC OEMs. In addition, HDMI’s popularity across the CE segment makes HDMI a popular choice, especially for consumer mobile PCs. Dell, Sony, HP, Acer, and Toshiba all feature HDMI in their consumer notebook lines. Netbooks are adopting HDMI as well, particularly higher-end devices that are marketed as media devices, so that they can connect to an HDTV.”

Other details from the report include:

  • Embedded DisplayPort will have a 35% attach rate in mobile PCs in 2013.
  • 117 million LCD PC monitors will ship with DVI in 2011.
  • HDMI will have an 82% attach rate in A/V receivers in 2012.
  • Over 19 million HDMI-enabled digital camcorders will ship in 2014.
