That's 1,000 sets worldwide - more than the first four years of DLNA's inclusion.

If you're not familiar with it, the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a group that aims to allow the sharing of video, audio and pictures across a range of devices like game systems, Blu-ray players and TVs. A DLNA certified product will play nice with the files that the DLNA supports without issue.

While DLNA is limited in its abilities, the ease of use is certainly attractive. It's so attractive, in fact, that DLNA capabilities have been included on 1,000 new television sets in the first quarter of this year. That puts the number to over 4,000 worldwide.

"In just the first three months of this year, we saw an exponential increase in new television model certifications," says DLNA chairman Nidish Parikh. "Consumers are demanding connectivity amongst all of their home entertainment products and require the flexibility to share content between products developed by a variety of manufacturers."
