Using an iVDR adapter, a personal computer can be used as an iVDR media server, allowing iVDR media to be viewed on DLNA-compliant* TVs and media players and enjoyed on large screens.
For example, a home network can be built simply with a laptop computer and an iVDR adaptor, making it possible for programs recorded on a large-capacity iVDR to be enjoyed even on a TV that lacks an iVDR slot.
Moreover, using an iVDR recorder compatible to DLNA instead of a laptop computer, a home network solution similar to the one mentioned above can be realized.
*DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) is an industry organization founded in June 2003. Its mission is to formulate industry guidelines to support the manufacture of compatible home appliances, mobile devices and PCs and to establish home networks using such compatible appliances and devices.
*Requires DTCP-IP** support
**DTCP-IP is a version of DTCP (Digital Transmission Content Protection), already in use with IEEE 1394, that has been adopted for use with IP networks. DTCP-IP is a technical standard for transmitting digital content protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) over home LAN connections.
