Access launches DLNA media-sharing software

TV technology provider Access has launched Access MediaPilot, a DLNA Certified software that it says enables consumers to share music, movies and photos on connected TVs, PCs, iPads, tablets and mobile phones without connecting cables or copying files. The app is available on the Apple iTunes store and Access MediaPilot site.

MediaPilot is based on Access’s NetFront Living Connect, a DLNA Technology Component solution that enables multimedia access and sharing in the digital home. Access is making SDKs available to developers.

“Up until now you have had to be pretty geeky to share media over a home network. Access MediaPilot changes that by making it easy for any movie or music lover to share and control their media over a PC, phone, tablet and TV,” said Neale Foster, vice-president of global sales IA, Access.

“Access MediaPilot uses the power of DLNA and UPnP to link consumer devices and builds in consumer-friendly features such as remote volume control and ‘swipe-to-TV’ in one incredibly easy to set-up and use package. This solution means you no longer have to hook-up cables, copy files and understand network protocols to share movies, music and photos on a home network.”
