Sony integrates phones into AV home networking

June 10th, 2006 · No Comments

Sony Ericsson has used the GLOBALCOMM 2006 expo in Chicago to demonstrate new technology that enables suitably equipped phones to access content on DNLA compliant home networks.
Its IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)  personalized TV system allows users to view the digital images on their mobiles on the living room screen wirelessly, use a home gateway for instant messaging between mobile phones outside the home and a living room TV, and be able to access the content stored on their home PC via mobile phones.
Those consumer electronic companies which are members of the Digital Network Living Alliance (DNLA) believe that the nascent tech will herald a new age of cross-platform content access and interactivity. Which may be true. Unfortunately, the roll-out of fully-realised DNLA systems has been hampered by DRM (digital rights management) issues.
