TECHTALK: DLNA - DIGITALES HOME ENTERTAINMENT MADE EASY? | JANUARY, 12 2012 BERLIN

January 02nd, 2012
The central task of the DLNA is to control and further develop the DLNA standard, which is intended to ensure that different types of equipment from different manufacturers are mutually compatible. Jens Georg, developer at Openismus Berlin, explains in his lecture what exactly is behind the DLNA standard, what the UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) protocols stands for and why DLNA is still needed in spite of UPnP. The event begins at 7 pm. Attendance is free and drinks and snacks are provided.

Digital home entertainment only begins to be real fun when all the machines at home harmonize with one another and – for instance – it’s no problem to show films and photos from your PC on the TV – quickly and without any error messages. But that is easier said than done. 

For this reason, since 2003 more than 240 companies in the consumer electronics area and the IT and telecommunications industry have joined forces under the Digital Living Network Alliance, DLNA for short. 
The central task of the DLNA is to control and further develop the DLNA standard, which is intended to ensure that different types of equipment from different manufacturers are mutually compatible.


Jens Georg
, developer at Openismus Berlin, explains in his lecture what exactly is behind the DLNA standard, what the UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) protocols stands for and why DLNA is still needed in spite of UPnP.
He provides insights on the technological aspects of DLNA and the certification process and discusses where DLNA gained its somewhat poor reputation, and where the repeated incompatibilities come from between devices that have actually been certified.
In addition, Jens reports on the adventure of implementing a closed specification like DLNA as a FOSS project.

The talk will not over-indulge in source codes, and will be in German.

The event will take place at c-base spacestation – in the heart of Berlin.  You can register with a formless e-mail to techtalk@remove-this.developergarden.com by January 11, 2012 at the latest. The event begins at 7 pm. Attendance is free and drinks and snacks are provided.

    Vielen Dank für den sehr objektiven und umfangreichen Artikel,

    auch ich bin großer Fan von Hybrid-Apps und sehe es als Zukunftstechnologie. Bisher machten allerdings Performance-Schwierigkeiten alle anderen Vorteile zunichte, weshalb die Hybrid-App einen recht schlechten Ruf genoss. Doch auch dies hat sich mittlerweile geändert und somit steht sie den anderen App-Formaten in nichts mehr nach, sondern spielt statt dessen noch mehr alle Vorteile aus.
    Hier gibt es einen recht umfangreichen Artikel über Hybrid-Apps, mit Erklärungen, Vorteilen aber auch Ausblicken:

    Schau doch mal rein, ich freue mich auf Feedback :)

    Beste Grüße,
    Johanna
