If you have a smartphone, or any number of other mobile computing devices for that matter, then you’re probably already using DLNA without even knowing it, and may have been for quite some time.
What is DLNA?
DLNA is an abbreviation for Digital Living Network Alliance, which is actually a non-profit organization committed to bridging the gap between digital technology and ease of use for consumers. The organization promotes the development and incorporation of compatible technologies and solutions for digital media and multimedia devices, including smartphones.
What does DLNA mean for you?
Currently, most DLNA smartphones allow you to do a number of things, including accessing different forms of media from your phone, sharing media with others who also have smartphones and internet access, and downloading and listing to music and downloading and viewing images and movies.
What are the Other Things DLNA can do?
DLNA smartphones continue to get more efficient, as other digital technologies make their way into average homes. With the increase in digital capability in the average household, DLNA smartphones make it possible to have handheld access to almost any digital device in the home, including everything from a wireless internet computer to a wireless ready television, DVR, or MP3 device.
Is Every Smartphone DLNA Capable?
Though DLNA is quickly making its way into handheld devices from multiple providers, it’s not yet a standard feature in all models. If you’re looking to increase your interconnectivity and ease of use and sharing, then you’ll want to consider making your next smartphone a DLNA certified model. Essentially what this means is that the smartphone you buy will be certified by the DLNA organization as meeting the interconnectivity and sharing standards the non-profit has established across the industry.
