PowerCinema 4 Goes UPnP

PowerCinema is the remote-controlled PC software to carry the UPnP logo for both MediaServer and MediaRenderer. The UPnP logo gives users the assurance that PowerCinema supports total interoperability between UPnP devices and PowerCinema, offering the freedom to share data between appliances anywhere within the Digital Home.

PowerCinema passed UPnP MediaServer testing for its ability to stream media to other UPnP compliant devices. Certification as a UPnP MediaRenderer endorses PowerCinema’s ability to stream media from other UPnP-compliant devices.

“UPnP certification places CyberLink PowerCinema in the unique position of being the only remote-controlled entertainment platform to carry the UPnP logo for both MediaServer and MediaRenderer capabilities,” said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. “PowerCinema already offers a total entertainment solution, and with UPnP we’ve taken it the next step by enabling the free flow of media between devices in the Digital Home.”
