TAIPEI, TAIWAN: CyberLink Corp. announced the release of SoftDMA 2, the latest media player for the digital home. SoftDMA 2 is DLNA v1.5 certified, enabling solutions for the streaming and sharing of digital content across a user's home network.
By automatically locating media servers connected to the home network, SoftDMA 2 makes it easy to access and share video, photos, music and recorded TV programs between networked digital devices.
"SoftDMA shapes a home cloud solution by enabling the convenience to stream and play all types of media content from any DLNA-compliant device over a wireless home network,” said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. “We are honored to be one of the first to provide a DLNA certified software solution, which makes the communication between hardware of different display standards a reality."
