DUBLIN, Apr. 02, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/q7325l/global_and) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Automotive Audio and Infotainment Industry Report" report to their offering.
In 2013, global infotainment market size approximated US$30.1 billion, an increase of 4.2% from a year earlier; and the decelerated growth was due to the sluggish European automotive market and lower infotainment prices. The market is expected to restore growth from the next year, with the size up 12.2% to US$33.8 billion in 2014, US$40.1 billion in 2015 and US$45.6 billion in 2016.
Infotainment market growth is largely because its increased and upgraded functions have greatly raised price. High-end infotainment map will be upgraded to 3D map, with display up from 6-8 inches to 10-12 inches, and rear-seat entertainment system will be more popular, also accompanied by the adding of 3G or 4G network connection as well as the mushrooming of corresponding smart phone APPs.
Infotainment will also see qualitative leap i.e. added by advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS); thus HUD system is bound to be added in the future, which will significantly improve the cost, but also means instrument cluster companies need to collaborate with infotainment vendors. Japan's Aisin AW and DENSO, U.S. Visteon and Delphi, Germany's Continental and South Korea's Mobis all have instrument cluster business, showing obvious future edges.
The massive prevalence of smart phones enables automotive infotainment to undergo a reform, 3G or 4G network connection will greatly improve automotive infotainment prices. At present, there are two camps for automotive networking, one of them is led by vehicle manufacturers, represented by GENIVI, whose founding members include Volvo, BMW, FAW, GM, HONDA, HYUNDAI, JAGUAR, JOHNDEER, NISSAN, PSA, RENAULT and SAIC. GENIVI uses general purpose platform, may be Linux with open-type application programming interface, high cost, high safety, long development cycle, infotainment embedded with 3G or 4G network connectivity, and the service charge will be high.
Another camp is led by smart phone vendors like MirrorLink and MHL. MirrorLink, jointly launched by three well-known mobile phone vendors - Nokia, Samsung and LG, six automakers - Daimler, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Toyota and Volkswagen, as well as two system suppliers - Alpine Electronics and Panasonic, embeds APP in phone and infotainment, connected by USB or WiFi, with very short development cycle, low cost, and a large number of products have been rolled out into the market. There is simpler MHL League, co-founded by Nokia, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and Silicon Image, with higher transmission rate and lower prices.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
