Tokyo - The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) has added five Promoter Members: AT&T, Dolby Laboratories, Qualcomm, Technicolor and Verizon.

The five have joined DLNA's 21 existing Promoter Members which all maintain a shared vision of connecting the digital home with DLNA Certified products to make the creation and sharing of photos, videos and music easier than ever before, the organization said.
