Here’s the event’s overview:

The digital home is an evolving consumer market segment in the electronics space that is driving new technologies, standards, and innovative products aimed at delivering digital content over home networks. However, various challenges are posed by this emerging market opportunity for device manufacturers and software vendors alike. Common challenges seen in the deployment of digital home solutions include digital rights management, network bandwidth, content storage, interoperability, dynamic environment, and distributed control.

This Web seminar will focus on how collaborative solutions from Mentor Graphics and BluePeach address these issues. Embedded software technologies such as UPnP (Universal Plug-n-Play), CIFS (Common Internet File System), NAS (Network Attached Storage), Media Server technologies and a plethora of Nucleus solutions have been developed to help solve the challenges device manufactures and developers face when delivering integrated digital home applications.
