dlna functions
DLNA Functions
  • Discover

Find devices on the network without configuration and figure out which capabilities they offer

  • Browse

Look through content, sorted in various ways

  • Search

Find specific content on a device

  • Stream

Send AV content over the network in real-time

  • Serve

Announce a directory of content to the network

  • Print

Send content to a network attached printer

  • Control

Use the network to change the status of a device

  • Upload

Send any content to a server

  • Download

Receive and store any content

  • Transcode

Change the resolution or format of content so that it can be rendered correctly on a device

  • Quality of Service (QoS)

Prioritize network traffic, so that if the network becomes overloaded, the lowest priority traffic is dropped first

device category and device class
Device Category and Device Class
  • Device Categories:
    • Device classes sharing common set of system usages
    • Mobile Handheld Devices (MHD): Mobile devices that leave the home and which have limitations on power, bandwidth, etc
    • Home Network Devices (HND): Networked media devices that primarily reside in the home or which have capabilities on par with such devices
    • Home Infrastructure Devices (HID): Devices which interconnect DLNA devices
    • A device may be in multiple device categories
  • Device Class:
    • DLNA certifiable entity that supports a defined system usage
    • Has requirements at all layers of the DLNA framework/architecture
    • A product may support one of more device classes

Device Class

  • Device Capability:
    • A DLNA certifiable add-on that must be combined with at least one device class and which supports a new system usage
    • Has requirements at only a subset of layers of the DLNA framework/architecture
    • A product may support one or more device capabilities
