DLNA on a PS3: ACCESS Demonstrates DMS

ACCESS Co., Ltd. has demonstrated the operation of its DLNA-compatible middleware "NetFront Living Connect" using the "PlayStation 3 (PS3)" at the "10th Embedded Systems Expo (ESEC)," which opened on May 16, 2007. Using "Yellow Dog Linux v5.0 for PlayStation 3," the company demonstrated its NetFront Living Connect for Linux.

NetFront Living Connect is a co-development with IP Infusion, Inc., which ACCESS acquired and made its wholly-owned subsidiary in February 2006.

The company demonstrated the operation of the PS3 as a "DMS (digital media server)" that transmits content stored on its HDD to other machines on the network. Given the limited capacity of its HDD, however, the PS3 is not really the optimum device to be used as a DMS, in which a large amount of content is stored. The PS3 is supposed to be optimum for use as a "DMP (digital media player)," which replays content in every kind of format by making the most of the computing capability of its "Cell" microprocessor.
