PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) today released the organization’s CVP-2 Guidelines and announced that DLNA Members can begin certifying products to the specifications in September. The availability of devices such as TVs, game consoles, tablets, phones, PCs and set top boxes certified to the CVP-2 Guidelines will enable consumers to enjoy their service providers’ full subscriber experiences on many different screens in the home.

“We are very pleased to be releasing DLNA’s CVP-2 Guidelines,” said Scott Lofgren, chairman and president of DLNA. “The availability of devices certified to the CVP-2 Guidelines will enable more consumers to view subscription TV content on more screens, all the while maintaining the full subscriber experience and user interface. Numerous DLNA members have been building and pre-testing products to the CVP-2 Guidelines and previewing their capabilities at a variety of industry venues and events, and we expect to see many exciting new products entering and achieving DLNA Certification in September.”

CVP-2 Guidelines were developed through a close collaboration between service providers and members of the consumer electronics product development ecosystem. These Guidelines are an extension of the standard DLNA Guidelines and enable client devices certified to the CVP-2 Guidelines to interoperate and share media with the billions of existing DLNA Certified servers. As CVP-2 capabilities are built into home network products, consumer choice will be improved for seamlessly enjoying subscription TV content from providers on multiple devices in the home.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
