The Digital Living Network Alliance announced that it has incorporated the Wi-Fi Direct technology into the DLNA standard, making ad-hoc streaming of your multimedia content a piece of cake.
In effect this means that soon you will be able to stream content from one of your DLNA devices to another without the trouble of setting up a Wi-Fi network. It will work in much the same way Bluetooth does nowadays, which is about as convenient as we can imagine.
The really good news is that you don’t need both of your devices to come with the newer DLNA specification – just one of them will do.
A penny for your thoughts?
