DLNA

(Digital Living Network Alliance) Founded in 2003 as the Digital Home Working Group, the DLNA (www.dlna.org) sets guidelines for using the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) protocol to transfer and stream media between computers, mobile devices and home theater equipment. The DLNA also provides product certification for vendors. Content stored on a local network (IP, Ethernet and Wi-Fi) can be discovered and streamed to connected players. See Internet Protocol, Ethernet, Wi-Fi and UPnP.
