SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Extending its leadership role within the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA), Macrovision Solutions Corporation (NASDAQ:MVSN) today announced that Adam Powers, the company's director of standards and emerging technology, has been named Chair of the DLNA Ecosystem Committee. This new appointment underscores Macrovision's continued commitment to DLNA, a global alliance of companies that share a vision of an interoperable network of personal computers, consumer electronics and mobile devices in and beyond the home.

In the very near future, the consumer experience is poised to include a digital lifestyle that allows for easily finding and enjoying any kind of digital content, regardless of the source or location. Macrovision is enabling a uniquely simple home entertainment experience for the consumer and its vision is synergistic with the DLNA's mission to help bring consumer devices with true interoperability to market.

The DLNA's Ecosystem Committee brings together members of the digital living ecosystem -- consumer electronics, semiconductor, and mobile device manufacturers as well as service providers, retailers, content providers and software developers -- to help make the DLNA's charter of a ubiquitously compatible and connected consumer experience a reality. The DLNA Ecosystem Committee is responsible for DLNA business and industry relationships including new initiatives and technologies, and verifying consumer adoption and ease of use of the DLNA standard.

"I encourage all companies and industry alliances in the digital home and consumer electronics markets that are interested in DLNA to reach out to me and the members of the Ecosystem Committee," said Adam Powers, DLNA Ecosystem Committee Chair. "We look forward to collaborating with these companies and integrating various perspectives to help bring true digital living to consumers."

"We welcome Macrovision's increased involvement and dedication to the leadership of DLNA," said Scott Smyers, president and chairman of DLNA. "We're excited to see the company help lead DLNA's efforts in bringing together all constituents of the ecosystem to make a seamless digital environment possible."

Founded in 2003, DLNA establishes and maintains a set of interoperability guidelines based on open industry standards that when used by manufacturers will support the sharing of media through wired or wireless data networks. More than 240 multi-industry companies from around the world have joined the DLNA. Earlier this year, Macrovision was also named a promoter member of DLNA.
