Samsung adopts HANA network AV standard

March 10th, 2006 · No Comments

Samsung says it is committed to launching a new range of HD AV networked products that connect HDTV and AV devices and allow high definition content to be shared amongst devices at home, meaning one remote control and one cable connection for the home. To address HD-related requirements, including content protection, interactive capabilities and new business models for HD related industries, leading companies from the consumer electronics, content provider, IT and service provider market joined forces in 2005 to create the first cross-industry HD A/V Network Alliance, β€œβ€, compatible with DNLA protocols. Board members include Charter Communications, JVC, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, NBC Universal, Sun Microsystems, Samsung Electronics and recent joiners Texas Instruments. Hee Min Kwon, Executive Vice President of Digital Solution Center of Samsung Electronics said, β€œThe high definition audio visual space is an excellent market opportunity, The number of HD TVs in the home is on the rise and is expected to top 15.5 million by the end of 2005, with continued growth expected at 150% annually. But along with opportunity comes risk as HD content enters the digital home. HANA is designed to satisfy all HD-related requirements and ensure quality of service, ease of use and protection of contents for consumers.”
