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.

How the COVID-19 Pandemic Advanced Telehealth Adoption

The global COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation across many industries. As an example, consider the healthcare sector. Some routine medical situations can be diagnosed and resolved online. While the trend was already in motion long before the pandemic arrived, the adoption of telehealth increased rapidly in 2020. Around the world, many governments responded to the disruption and inaccessibility of healthcare facilities by loosening previous regulations and restrictions on the practice of telemedicine apps, and teleconsultations. This decision resulted in the mass adoption of these medical services among patients and providers. According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, telemedicine will save the healthcare industry $21 billion in costs by 2025 -- that's rising from an estimated $11 billion in 2021. This increased app usage represents an anticipated growth rate of over 80 percent in the next four years. Telehealth Services Market Development The co
