Nokia makes DLNA move


Nokia and Phillips are to work together to improve the connection of their devices through Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) technology.

Aiming to take advantage of the full potential of Nokia Home Media Solution and Philips Streamium products, the companies will optimise connections between the devices in an attempt to give consumers a simple and seamless experience.

“Working with Philips, we can simplify the ‘connected home’ experience,” said Nokia head of new business Richard French. “When people are shopping for new devices, we want to eliminate the guesswork in buying compatible devices for their home network and help them enjoy hassle-free connectivity.”

DLNA is a wireless standard that allows devices to automatically connect and share information when they are in range, allowing music, videos and other media such as pictures to be seamlessly moved between mobiles, TVs, stereos and computers.
