  3. 3. Key Insights: Use Cases Top Tier Use Cases – Most Appealing and Relevant • Take Your Music and Podcasts with You In Your Car • Watch DVR Recordings Anywhere In Your Home • Remote Access to Your Home Network Consumers find use cases that are new, uncommon, and applicable on a daily basis to be the most appealing and relevant uses of DLNA certified technology. Appealing features and functionality include remote access, simpler access to online content, central storage of media files, and eliminating cluttered wires and cables. Bottom Tier Use Cases – Least Appealing and Relevant • Show Your On-the-Fly Video • Easy Printing • A Multimedia Slideshow In Your Living Room Consumers are generally uninterested in use cases that represent only minor improvements to current connectivity processes. Wireless connectivity replacing wired connections – as in these Bottom Tier Use Cases – are seen as beneficial, but not ultimately a driver of DLNA certified product purchases. Consumers are also uninterested in viewing photos on their television. DLNA Confidential
  4. 4.

However, Easy Printing is not actuallyamong the lowest rated use cases, potentially due to its similar appeal, relevance,and real world application ratings among consumers of all three types: EarlyAdopters, Mainstream, and Mass Consumers.

  11. 11. Additional Recommendations7. Inform Consumers Provide consumers with the information they need to maximize use of their home network, beyond functionality into flexibility. Inform consumers about the full functionality of the technology they purchase, the connectivity options that are already available, and how they can benefit in the short term from DLNA solutions.8. Build a Trusted Overarching Brand Leverage the brand reputation of member companies and increased promotion of DLNA certification to bolster consumer trust in DLNA as an industry-wide standard. Communicate the commitment of member companies to DLNA and to interoperability in general. Communicate a shared goal of easy to use media and content sharing features that are capable of transforming how consumers approach technology in their home.9. Be Sensitive to Cultural Variation and Perspectives Though perceptions of the DLNA use cases do not differ dramatically across regions tested in the qualitative and quantitative research, study the usage and behavioral data of consumers in each region to understand, for example, the low impact of the suggested scenarios in the tech-savvy Japanese market, and the differences in entertainment behaviors among US, European, and Japanese consumers.
