LONG BEACH, CALIF. — Pioneer Electronics has begun offering firmware updates for all of its 2012 networked audio/video receivers (AVRs) to add HTC Connect technology.
HTC Connect simplifies the Wi-Fi streaming of music from select HTC phones to the DLNA-networked AVRs and ensures reliable performance, Pioneer said. Certification reduces the number of steps that a consumer must take on an HTC phone to initiate streaming to the AVRs, which will appear on an HTC smartphone’s screen as a compatible HTC Connect device for quick selection.
The HTC device will also stream album art and metadata through the AVRs to a connected TV.
Pioneer became the first A/V supplier to offer HTC Connect earlier this year with the launch of tabletop SMA wireless speakers. The AVRs and speakers work with the seven latest HTC phones.
