SCOTTSDALE, AZ, Jul 27 (MARKET WIRE) —
Although slow progress best describes the fate of wireless HD chip
vendors in 2010, the five-year outlook is for a robust triple-digit
growth rate of wireless HD video-enabled products through 2014 according
to In-Stat (www.in-stat.com). The number of shipments is projected to
rise from the current levels of less than 1 million to nearly 13 million
“The long term projection is for significant growth in wireless HD
video-enabled product shipments. However, these technologies are likely
several years away from hitting the sweet spot of the consumer
electronics (CE) and PC markets,” says Brian O’Rourke, Principal Analyst
for In-Stat. “There are still significant price and performance issues
that need to be overcome before device manufacturers fully adopt these
Additional findings include:
– Alternative video transmission technologies, WHDI, WirelessHD, and
WiGig Alliance, are vying for a dominant position. Among the
differentiating factors are whole-home range, price and performance
issues, single source, and time-to-market issues.
– WHDI and WirelessHD chip ASPs will fall over 25% annually through
– WirelessHD is championed by chipmaker SiBeam and backed by NEC,
Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and LG.
– WHDI (backed by AMIMON) and WirelessHD (backed by SiBeam) device
shipments will grow at triple-digit annual percentage rates through
– WiGig Alliance members include: Broadcom, Dell, Intel, LG Electronics,
Microsoft, NEC, Nokia, NXP, Panasonic, and Samsung.
– Strong competitive technologies include various flavors of Wi-Fi,
Intel’s Wireless Display (WiDi) initiative, and Sony’s TransferJet.
