Participants demonstrated secure sharing of premium DVR content over a home network using DTCP/IP among multiple tru2way set-top boxes and DLNA devices, such as connected TVs, game consoles, and PCs. Participants also demonstrated use of a DLNA application on a mobile phone to control devices on the home network.
