In order to achieve its vision of digital interoperability in the home, DLNA has published a
common set of industry design guidelines that allow manufacturers to participate in a growing marketplace of networked devices. The DLNA Networked Device Interoperability Guidelines specify the interoperable building blocks that are available to build platforms and software infrastructure. They focus on interoperability between networked entertainment and media devices for media uses that involve images, audio and video. As new technology and standards become available, the Guidelines may broaden to cover other areas, such as home control, communications and advanced entertainment scenarios.
