60 Million 3D Mobile Video Devices Ship in 2014

The major Hollywood movie studios are already taking 3D content from cinemas to the home as TV manufacturers ship increasing numbers of 3D-ready TV sets.

While these efforts are aimed at the consumer home theater environment, the trend is enabling the next evolution -- 3D video on mobile devices.

In-Stat anticipates that the number of 3D-enabled mobile devices shipped in 2014 will surpass 60 million units.

"Due to advancements in auto-stereoscopic 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," says Stephanie Ethier, Senior Analyst at In-Stat.

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, according to In-Stat's assessment, the smartphones promise the largest opportunity for mobile 3D technology suppliers over the next five years.

- Auto-stereoscopic 3D is necessary for 3D mobile device consumer acceptance.

- By 2012, 3D-enabled smartphones will represent 45 percent of all 3D-enabled mobile devices shipments.

- Penetration rates will be highest in the handheld game console market segment.

- Tablets, smartphones, and handheld game consoles, will incorporate 3D more quickly than other portable devices.
