DLNA connects products from over 245 different manufacturers including Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and Microsoft through a wired or wireless home network.
Please note: All products need to be DLNA certified to work together. See some examples of how you can use it below:

- Send pictures from your camera straight to your TV without any fuss
- Transfer music from your PC to your MP3 player in a few quick clicks
One example of how it can work: Connect your TV and PC to your router either via a wireless set-up or using network cables (Ethernet). If you update to the latest Windows Media Player you can set-up file sharing by going to Library > Media Sharing. A pop-up will appear showing you which devices you can currently share files with.
