More choice impacts mobile video market: In-Stat PDF Print E-mail
Written by Tom Philp   

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona - A new report released this week by In-Stat suggests the development and introduction of a broad range of new mobile devices with video displays will have a huge impact on the future mobile video market.

The research firm says the scope of new device options will provide more markets for mobile operators, mobile broadcasters, advertisers and other content owners.

"Even though cellphones and smartphones will remain the predominant method of viewing mobile video, over 160 million other devices that provide mobile video over networks now in exclusive use by cellphones will be sold in the next five years," says David Chamberlain, In-Stat analyst.

In-Stat also found:

  • Shipments of 3G video-capable cellphones will increase at 11.2 per cent annual growth, reaching more than 641 million by 2013.
  • The number and types of devices using digital mobile broadcast networks such as ISDB-T, DVB-H, MediaFLO, and DMB-T will expand to nearly 127 million in five years. China's CMMB will make up more than 12 per cent of those devices.
  • More than a half-billion devices capable of viewing Internet video over 3G networks will be sold in 2013. Cumulative sales will approach two billion units.
