Nero Inc. recently announced that Nero MediaHome passed the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) test "Designed to DLNA Guidelines".
The DLNA is a multi -industry organization which is active world -wide, consisting of leading entertainment -technology, computer and mobile telecommunication companies. It is working to establish consistent standards for digital home networking.
Nero MediaHome was able to satisfy the compatibility demands of other "Designed to DLNA Guidelines" products in a so -called "Real -Life" test. The UPnP A/V (Audio/Video) Media Server, which is already certified, automatically recognizes UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) devices together with digital content in the network; puts audio, video and photo data at their disposal; and converts the data into the desired formats (JPEG, LPCM and MPEG2). The goal is to provide consumers user -friendly management of their own music, video and photo collections via a local network. Access to a desired song or film from any multimedia device within the home should be carried out easily and comfortably. Format conversions, which are often required between devices from different manufacturers or between different types of devices, run in the background, leaving the customer free from any technical complications. Nero MediaHome connects the computer with multimedia devices, creating a combined media -center.
