CableLabs Receives DLNA Award for CVP-2 Guidelines
Congratulations to Ryan Chiang, Senior Standardization Lead at CableLabs, who received an Outstanding Contribution Award from DLNA for his role in production of the CVP-2 guidelines. Ryan had this to say on the award:
“CableLabs, working closely with DLNA Members from the service provider and consumer electronics communities, is proud to have contributed to the development of the DLNA CVP-2 Guidelines published earlier this year. The Guidelines enable delivery of premium cable content to a wide variety of consumer devices, such as televisions, tablets, game consoles, Blu-ray players, and HDMI sticks. CableLabs is a member of the DLNA Board of Directors, and has hosted several DLNA Plugfest events to promote the interoperability of DLNA CVP-2 products under development. It is my honor to be recognized by the Alliance for contributions to the CVP-2 effort.”
While Ryan received the award, these guidelines wouldn’t have been possible without a full team effort with many important participants. Congrats team!
