DLNA has spent the past four years developing guidelines and certification protocols enabling networked interoperability among PC, CE and mobile devices. Now, with millions of DLNA Certified products in the marketplace, the organization is providing retailers with educational and support materials explaining how DLNA Certified products will make digital living a reality for consumers.
