HTC is out to ensure its customers have the easiest means possible to connect its smartphones to A/V units by introducing its HTC Connect certification for select A/V receivers. Here’s how it works: A/V manufacturers such as Pioneer will release units bearing an HTC Connect logo and then HTC smartphone owners will be able to connect their phones to the A/V units via a DLNA-based connection. HTC also mentions the possibility of extending the connections beyond DLNA to Bluetooth and maybe even NFC or car audio/video eventually too.
HTC isn’t waiting around to refine this technology either. It currently is developing a major software update for its One Series of smartphones and plans on releasing it in the coming months. Additional details are lacking for now, but you can bet HTC will provide more info as we get closer and closer to seeing its Connect certification a reality. Hit the break for the full presser from HTC.
