As adoption of HDMI ports approaches 100 percent in digital televisions, the interface is now moving into set-top boxes, DVD equipment and mobile PCs, according to In-Stat report "DVI and HDMI 2008: A Time of Transition." The research firm expects HDMI-enabled product shipments to increase at an annual rate of 23 percent between 2007 and 2012.

A range of device segments spanning consumer electronics, computers and computer peripherals is 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 report further indicates 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-tops, growing to 85 percent penetration and 17.6 million boxes by 2012.

. HDMI penetration in portable media players will approach 10 percent 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 percent through 2012.
