July 1, 2011

The HomePNA Alliance has confirmed that its technology standard has been approved by the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) for incorporation into the next version of its Networked Device Interoperability Guidelines.

“There are a large number of products available to deliver and consume digital content throughout today’s connected home. DLNA Certification gives service providers a valuable tool to simplify the deployment of services such as IPTV to consumers,” said Michael Weissman, president of HomePNA.  “DLNA and HomePNA share a common vision – to simplify the installation of networked products. HomePNA believes that DLNA Certified HomePNA products will help drive additional reductions in IPTV installation and operating costs, saving time and money for service providers and increasing customer satisfaction.”
