The major movie studios are taking 3D content from cinemas to the home as TV manufacturers ship increasing numbers of stereo-3D-ready TVs. While these efforts are aimed at the home theater environment, the trend is enabling the next evolution of stereo-3D, S3D on mobile devices.  In-Stat expects that the number of 3D-enabled mobile devices shipped in 2014 will surpass 60 million units.

 “Due to advancements in autostereoscopic 3D technology, a type of 3D technology that does not require glasses to view S3D images, 3D technology is finding its way into mobile devices. The more predictable viewing distance of mobile devices enables  a compelling and convenient 3D experience," said Stephanie Ethier, a senior analyst at In-Stat.

Tablets, smartphones, and handheld game consoles, will incorporate 3D more quickly than other portable devices. Naturally, penetration rates will be highest in the handheld game console market segment. 

"Additionally, many of the chipsets found in today’s smartphones have the processing power to handle 3D content; therefore the smartphones promise the largest opportunity for mobile 3D technology suppliers over the next five years," added Mr. Ethier.

 By 2012, 3D-enabled smartphones will represent 45% of all 3D-enabled mobile devices shipments, according to findings by In-Stat.
