SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(Business Wire)--DVI, facing strong competition from other technologies, including
HDMI and the DisplayPort standard in the PC market, will begin a steep
decline in 2008, reports In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com). DVI will
decline from 112 million device shipments in 2007 to just 3 million
device shipments in 2011, the high-tech market research firm says.
Digital visual interface (DVI) and high-definition multimedia
interface (HDMI), are related, high-bandwidth, unidirectional,
uncompressed digital interface standards.

   "HDMI's success continues to be enormous, especially in the
Consumer Electronics (CE) segment," says Brian O'Rourke, In-Stat
analyst. "Close to 90% of digital television (DTV) shipments in 2007
are expected to include HDMI. In addition, HDMI penetration of large
markets such as set top boxes continues to increase."

   Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

   --  143 million HDMI-enabled devices will ship in 2007.

   --  DVI-enabled device shipments will decline sharply through
        2011, due primarily to competition from DisplayPort.

   --  Several PC original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) released
        HDMI-enabled mediacentric notebook PCs in 2007, including
        Toshiba, Sony and Hewlett-Packard.

   The research, "DVI and HDMI in 2007: DisplayPort Looms While HDMI
Booms" (#IN0703809MI), covers the worldwide market for DVI and HDMI.
It contains analysis and annual worldwide forecasts for the
penetration of DVI and HDMI into 19 different applications in PCs, PC
peripherals, CE, and communications devices. Five-year average selling
price forecasts for discrete DVI and HDMI transmitters and receivers
are provided. Past history of penetration forecasts back to 2005 is
also included, in addition to brief profiles of major DVI and HDMI
transmitter, receiver, and switch suppliers.
