For the audio industry, wireless concepts are getting more and more interesting with the development of technologies, because this guarantees reliable and high quality audio streaming throughout a Wi-Fi/Ethernet home network. New audio concepts have been introduced where independent speakers are connected to the network but controlled through a central management system. End users can now find audio files stored on any UPnP/DLNA/Samsung Link compatible storage on the network and playback to any speaker system.
For high-end systems control may be through a dedicated system controller, but increasingly all such networked systems are relying on the user’s’ mobile devices to act as portable remote controllers.

BenefitsArkuda offers OEM & ODM manufacturers the Media Network Solution to develop both new and existing audio UPnP/DLNA/Samsung Link products.
The innovative architecture of Arkuda’s media network solutions offers the best environment to integrate the technology into new products. Arkuda can offer development services & project management for audio systems beyond the core media network products.
Using Media network API, Arkuda has already developed the MyAudioStream application which is available for end-user purchase in the App Store and Google Play market. We can license the complete MyAudioStream app, re-skinned to your brand requirements.
v For simultaneous playback on networked loudspeakers, Arkuda can integrate a P2P software module, where we use multicast technology. Each device needs to install both DMR and DMS. With this solution, latency cannot be detected by the end user.
Compatibility with Airplay is only permissible if the OEM or ODM has licensed the technology from Apple. Arkuda has done a technical study on how to integrate with Apple iTunes, and can provide a project proposal on request. Contact Us to know more about how Arkuda Digital can help you!
