The Yahoo! Digital Home Engine can be added to a PC or network-attached storage (NAS) device on the home network and works in conjunction with any DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) certified media player.
Yahoo! Japan is demonstrating a prototype Buffalo LinkStation Home Server with the Yahoo! Digital Home Engine. In the past year, Buffalo and Mediabolic have teamed up to launch four separate digital home product families, including the LinkStation Home Server.
Mediabolic’s Media Player and Media Server software enable connected entertainment products to work together, regardless of brand or device type. The company licenses its Source Code SDK, a package of software development tools, to manufacturers and content providers so that they can add media playback functionality to their products.
