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.

Artificial Intelligence for National Border Security

National border protection agencies are under pressure to provide the highest level of security in the face of growing threats, such as increasing illegal migration and international terrorism. Now, government agencies are embracing advanced border security technologies to aid in effectively and reliably securing national borders. These solutions look to detect and identify potential threats and prevent them from escalating to a point that may jeopardize security. Security Surveillance Market Development Traditional border security patrols and Closed-circuit Television (CCTV) surveillance systems aren't adequate protection, and agencies must increasingly deploy new solutions to stay ahead of criminals and other potential threats to ensure the safety of a country’s borders. According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, the value of the border security technology market will exceed $70 billion globally in 2027 -- that's rising from $48 billion in 2022.
