“We are extremely proud of what the members and staff of DLNA have accomplished - creating the world’s largest connected-home product ecosystem with nearly 4 billion units certified across more than 25,000 device models during the past 13 years,” said Stephen Palm, chairman and president of DLNA. “We thank our members for their hard work and commitment to making DLNA one of the industry’s most successful examples of the power of broadly supported product interoperability initiatives for accelerating innovation, creating new markets, and transforming the user experience.”
DLNA’s world-class certification program will now be provided by SpireSpark International, which has been founded by former DLNA executives and will be located in Portland, Oregon. Staffed by the team experienced in all aspects of DLNA Certification, the firm will provide a seamless transition for companies that are currently certifying products or wish to do so in the future. DLNA Certification is now open to all companies, with no DLNA membership required. Access to the comprehensive DLNA test suite including the Conformance Test Tool (CTT), Media Capabilities Verification Tool (MCVT), Awox Golden Reference Devices and many other tools for testing media sharing, including DRM and HTML5, will be available under a new fee structure.
In addition to providing DLNA Certification services, SpireSpark International will also offer specialized program support services for organizations that are running their own programs. SpireSpark International will focus on the following areas: operationalizing certification programs, QA services, engineering services, association setup, conference management, and member marketing services. Leveraging deep experience in highly specialized areas, the organization will deliver these cost-effective services through virtual teams of experts that can be scaled as needed and deployed quickly.
SpireSpark International’s mission is to partner with organizations in achieving their goals by providing virtual, customized support that allows them to remain in control of their day-to-day operations, while outsourcing high level projects to experts in the field. SpireSpark International was founded by former DLNA executives. Additional information about SpireSpark is available at spirespark.com .
