DLNA: Spotlight on the CVP-2 guidelines

13 September 2014

The recently announced CVP-2 Guidelines for viewing subscription TV content across multiple devices in the home are taking centre stage at the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) stand.

These guidelines enable consumers to stream pay TV content such as their favourite television programmes and movies from their local operator to DLNA certified products such as digital televisions, tablets, mobile phones, Blu-ray disc players and videogame consoles anywhere in the home.

The CVP-2 Guidelines were developed through close collaboration between service providers and members of the consumer electronics product development ecosystem. They’re an extension of the standard DLNA Guidelines and enable client devices certified to the CVP-2 Guidelines to interoperate and share media with the billions of existing DLNA Certified servers.

The alliance suggests that as CVP-2 capabilities are built into home network products, consumer choice will be improved for seamlessly enjoying subscription TV content from providers on multiple devices in the home.
DLNA Members can begin certifying products to the internationally agreed specifications in September 2014.
