Smartphone manufacturer, HTC has announced plans for a certification programme to indicate other consumer electronics that can connect to its smartphones.
The HTC Connect certification introduces new connectivity standards for partners. The HTC One series of smartphones is slated to receive HTC Connect certification through a software update in the coming months.
"The vision for HTC Connect is to allow our customers to easily stream their favorite high-quality video and audio from their smartphone into their home or car. This new initiative will build upon HTC's innovation in smartphones with leading consumer electronics brands," said Kouji Kodera, chief product officer, HTC.
Pioneer Electronics is the first partner to bring HTC Connect-certified devices to market. HTC Connect will be featured as part of Pioneer's 2012 lineup of DLNA-capable audio/video receivers and wireless speakers.
The HTC Connect certification will also be extended to future Pioneer products.
