HDMI on Mobiles Enable Advanced Video Apps

The global mobile phone market is now a significant opportunity for many consumer technology companies, shipping in the billions of units every year. So, it makes sense that the HDMI audio/video interface chip manufacturers would pursue it.

HDMI on mobile phones enables advanced media-centric applications -- especially HD-enabled camera phones -- to connect to HD video displays, including HDMI-enabled digital television sets. That said, any video that can be seen on the phone can easily be viewed on a TV -- including streamed OTT pay-TV content.

For the first time, the number of mobile phones with HDMI ports will ship in excess of a million units in 2010, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

Meanwhile, the HDMI interface has become pervasive in all consumer electronics, accounting for over 350 million devices shipping in 2010.

"The emergence of phones that can capture 720p HD video has helped HDMI gain penetration over the last year," says Brian O'Rourke, Principal Analyst at In-Stat.

However, HDMI will face significant challenges in this market. First, phone vendors and mobile service providers must allow it to be included on their devices. Second, HDMI faces increased competition from new interfaces such as the Mobile High-definition Link (MHL).

In-Stat's latest market study findings include:

- Overall HDMI device shipments will increase by 20.8 percent annually through 2014.

- DVI device shipments will increase through 2011 before starting a slow decline.

- HDMI is gaining traction in mobile PCs, graphics cards, and PC monitors.

- DVI device shipments will begin its slow decline in 2011 due to competition from both DisplayPort and HDMI.

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
