The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) experienced unprecedented growth in the number of DLNA certified televisions during the first quarter of 2011, certifying more than 1,000 models in North America, Europe, Korea and Japan. The number of TV models certified by the Alliance in the first three months of the year was greater than the total number certified in the first four years of the program. There are now more than 4,000 certified TV models available.
“Consumers are demanding connectivity amongst all of their home entertainment products and require the flexibility to share content between products developed by a variety of manufacturers," said Nidhish Parikh, chairman and president of DLNA, in a statement. "This demand increases each year and we expect to see continued growth in DLNA certified televisions as a result.”
