In-Stat: HDMI Gains as DVI Slides
Digital Visual Interface (DVI) technology continued to lose ground in the market to its younger cousin, High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), and is headed for losses in the PC market, according to a new report from tech researcher In-Stat.

HDMI-enabled product shipments increased from 5 million in 2004 to 17.4 million in 2005, and while DVI-enabled shipments are projected to reach nearly 66 million in 2006, a steady decline will then begin. In-Stat said this week in a statement there are two reasons for the projected decline: 1) the recently released HDMI 1.2 specification makes the standard more compatible with PCs; 2) two new specs announced in 2005, DisplayPort and Unified Display Interface (UDI) offer higher bandwidth and a simpler design than DVI.

The analyst firm said HDMI has seen its initial success in DTV expand into other devices such as STBs, DVD players and DVRs. In-Stat forecasts that DVI will be completely out of the CE market by 2008.
