During Broadband World Forum in Berlin October 8-11, Ericsson, will jointly demonstrate the benefits of combining IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)-based personalized TV and Sony's home network based on Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) standards.
The combination of technologies based on IMS and DLNA standards will enable consumers to access new multimedia services anywhere, anytime and on any device.
Ericsson, Sony and Sony Ericsson are developing, prototyping and exploiting an interworking solution that will connect Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) based consumer devices to IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) based services via gateways based on the Home IMS Gateway concept.
This solution allows consumers to access, control and sharing of content stored at home using any device anywhere, as well as communication services such as presence and messaging.
At the Broadband World Forum, the three companies will demonstrate IPTV, remote media access and place-shift TV services. In the demonstration a Sony prototype TV connects into Ericsson's IMS-based service backend and IPTV Core via a home server (SIP-to-DLNA interworking) and the Home IMS Gateway. Mobile media access and remote place-shift control will be demonstrated on a Sony Ericsson P1 mobile phone.
