DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance ) technology allows users to seamlessly exchange, stream and synchronize media content between their various devices. DLNA enabled devices are becoming ubiquitous in the modern home. There are a number of existing open source projects that can be used to take advantage of the DLNA functionality offered by such devices. This presentation will provide hands-on examples of how these open source projects can be employed and tailored by users to meet their specific needs. There will be demonstrations of the standard DLNA use cases, explanations of the various DLNA APIs, including examples of their use, and the live creation of DLNA enabled applications.
