HDMI, Displayport Quickly Replacing DVI

The DVI interface will is headed for retirement, as HDMI and Displayport are establishing themselves as successors for the interface. Market researchers from In-Stat believe that DVI shipments will "begin a steep decline" in 2008: The technology has been included in more than 112 million devices in 2007, but will only be included in an estimated 3 million devices in 2011, according to In-Stat.

Brian O'Rourke, an analyst with In-Stat, said that 143 million HDMI devices shipped in 2007; 90% of all digital TVs shipped during the year included HDMI.

However, Displayport emerges as the primary competition of DVI and DVI shipments will decline through 2011 as a result, In-Stat said.
