DLNA Technology Components

Technology component vendors are companies that contribute to the DLNA ecosystems but do not necessarily make devices that are sold to consumers. They are often the first to adopt new DLNA Guidelines and frequently evangelize the DLNA value proposition to the CE industry. Examples of DLNA components include middleware, codecs, silicon, and Wi-Fi modules – essentially any product or solution that implements some of the layers – but not all the layers – as described in the DLNA and VidiPath Guidelines. As long as the component is part of a DLNA Certified Device or VidiPath Certified Device, it may be marketed in the industry as a Technology Component and may bear the Technology Component logo.
