The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) has just given statement that the number of DLNA Certified Blu-ray players has almost doubled in 2010, bringing the total to 105. This growth is to be expected given the burgeoning demand for the device.

A recent Digitimes Research study found that global sales volume of Blu-ray players will increase to 40 million units in 2011 and further to 52 million units in 2012. In the US alone, the Digital Entertainment Group (DEG) reports that overall household penetration of Blu-ray compatible devices has now reached more than 18 million homes. Executive director of DLNA, Donna Moore says, "DLNA Certified Blu-ray players are helping to bring new forms of entertainment to the home screen." She adds, "As the role of the TV in the digital home evolves, consumers' expectations are changing along with it. Fifty-one Blu-ray players have become DLNA Certified since the beginning of the year, offering a level of interoperability and ability to share photos, movies and music between devices."

DLNA Certified Blu-ray players adhere to DLNA Interoperability Guidelines and have fulfilled rigorous interoperability tests. They join the mass of over 7,500 DLNA Certified products in an extensive range of device categories including personal computers, mobile devices, televisions, digital cameras, network attached storage devices and printers.
