The Digital Living Network Alliance has elected Amol Bhagwat, senior architect at CableLabs, to its board of directors.
He joins representatives from Broadcom, Intel, Microsoft, Nokia, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Technicolor, who are tasked with overseeing DLNA standards that allow enabled devices to communicate with each other, regardless of manufacturer.
“DLNA is committed to working with service providers to bring premium commercial video to products in the digital home,” said Nidhish Parikh, chairman and president of DLNA. “CableLabs is a DLNA promoter member, and their work within the alliance and the cable industry demonstrates their dedication to the evolution of cable networks, services and operations.”
CableLabs is a nonprofit research and development consortium dedicated to technical advancements in the cable industry.
