HEVC Compression Standard Approval Comes Just in Time for UltraHD & Mobile HDFebruary 15, 2013With the news of the recent ratification of a new ITU video compression standard, known as HEVC, (High Efficiency Video Coding), consumer dreams of an “Ultra” High Definition electronics enabled world just got one step closer to reality.Subscribers Only
Qualcomm backs away from Mirasol displays amidst weak eReader marketAugust 15, 2012July 2012 witnessed Qualcomm announcing a move away from the manufacturing of Mirasol displays, shifting plans from panel manufacturing to primarily focusing on licensing the technology. Mirasol is the trademarked name for what is...
Trident Sells DTV Business as Profitability in TV Supply Chain WithersApril 17, 2012A few months after news broke of Trident Microsystems selling their STB business to Entropic, Sigma Designs is now announcing that they have been selected as the successful bidder to acquire Trident Microsystems digital TV focused chipset business.
ARM Gaining Momentum in the DTV SpaceJanuary 25, 2012In the battle over the digital television (DTV) system-on-chip market, MIPS remains the dominant CPU cores seen within the TV SoC space, claiming over 60% of TV SoC shipments on a global basis in 2011.Subscribers Only
Can Apple Breathe New Life into the Moribund TV Market?November 14, 2011By offering a complete television solution that seamlessly integrates the three key elements of display, user interface—and most importantly content—Apple Inc. has the opportunity to develop a lucrative new business model that could allow it to cut a profit despite the weak market conditions of the TV market, according to new IHS iSuppli Home & Consumer Electronics research from information and analysis provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
Mobile Market: A Key Opportunity for CE Semiconductor SuppliersOctober 14, 2011As video consumption and recording capabilities begin to extend to mobile devices, there is a growing overlap in required algorithms and video processing techniques between such devices and their counterparts on a shelf in the living room. Functions such as image scaling, frame rate conversion, resolution and color enhancement, and noise and artifact suppression are becoming increasingly essential in mobile CE applications, especially as consumers seek more capable mobile devices and as display quality on smaller screens sees rapid improvement.
Broadcom Market Exit Shows Dramatic Decline of Western TV Chip SuppliersSeptember 29, 2011Broadcom Corp.’s reported exit from the markets for television video processing chips illustrates the increasingly intense state of competition in this area, as Asian suppliers drive the established Western suppliers out of the business, according to the IHS iSuppli Digital TV & Set-top Box Semiconductor Market Tracker from information and analysis provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
MHL Shows Potential for Mobile HD ConnectionsSeptember 08, 2011
Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) is one of the newer high-definition technologies that is linking consumer devices today. Originally started by Silicon Image in Janurary 2008, MHL became a consortium in Spring 2010, primarily backed by Nokia, Samsung, Silicon Image, Sony and Toshiba. Currently boasting over 60 adopters, up from approximately 10 at the beginning of 2011, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the MHL interface has very strong growth potential, owing to the dominant position HDMI has established in HD-capable CE devices and the rapid adoption of HD-video applications in mobile CE devices such as smartphones and now tablet PCs.
LED Backlighting Drives Double-Digit Growth for DTV Semiconductors in 2011February 22, 2011Driven by the vibrant light-emitting diode (LED) backlighting segment, the global digital TV (DTV) semiconductor market is expected to expand by a robust 16.5 percent in 2011, according to new IHS iSuppli research.
Revenue in 2011 for DTV semiconductors is projected to reach $15.5 billion, up from $13.3 billion in 2010. Without the high-performing market for LED backlights used in liquid-crystal display (LCD) televisions, growth of the overall DTV semiconductor space in 2011 would amount to just 4.1 percent.
Revenue will continue to rise during the next few years, hitting $19.0 billion in 2014.
Wireless Links for Video Consumer Electronics Devices Set to BoomJune 01, 2010The Consumer Electronics (CE) industry is entering a new era of ubiquitous connectivity, spurring a boom in shipments of video-oriented CE devices equipped with high-bandwidth wireless video interface solutions, according to iSuppli Corp.
iSuppli expects the market for video-enabled CE devices with high-bandwidth wireless video interfaces to grow to more than 85.2 million units by 2014, up from 606,000 units in 2009. By 2014, more than 53 million of these devices will be wireless-video-enabled digital TVs and consumer-oriented netbooks/laptops.
With the transition to digital technology and High-Definition (HD) largely a fait accompli, the CE market now is rapidly transitioning to an era when connectivity among consumer electronics devices and to the Internet will be the driving force behind many key innovations and new capabilities,” said Randy Lawson
iSuppli Discusses New Era of Consumer Electronics at European BriefingFebruary 22, 2010The Consumer Electronics (CE) market is entering a new era. Is your company ready? “The dawning of a new age in consumer electronics in upon us,” said Randy Lawson, principal analyst and manager, consumer and display electronics at iSuppli Corp. “iSuppli dubs this era ‘CE 3.0,’ a new phase characterized by smart products that come standard with integrated wired and wireless networking features, increasingly complex software and the capability to access content from the Internet.” In this period of radical change, the CE market faces a number of fundamental questions...
