I'm really excited to see that the AllPlay smart media platform will bring wireless whole home audio to the mass market because it’s a cross-brand interoperable solution that is enabling an ecosystem of like-minded companies to emerge. If you're at CES, you'll see speakers and audio adapters powered by AllPlay from hardware companies including Lenco, Medion, Musaic and Panasonic demonstrated in the Qualcomm booth at CES 2014. In addition, doubleTwist with Magic Radio, iHeartRadio, Rhapsody/Napster and SomaFM are also demonstrating their AllPlay compatible streaming music apps in our booth. Wait…there's more! Additional manufacturer and content partners who are planning to support the platform this year include Altec Lansing, Aupeo, Grooveshark and Tune-In.
And for those that want those technical aspects and offerings of the AllPlay smart media platform:
This sort of cross-platform approach only makes sense, right? Consumers, no matter how much they may prefer some specific brand for a particular bit of gear, typically don’t fill their homes with consumer electronics from just one company. So if you’re going to free their stereos from wires and make it easy for them to play whatever’s accessible on their phone or tablet to whatever speakers they have, AllPlay is just the ticket. And AllPlay can do this easily because it’s based on the power of the AllJoyn software and services framework which enables interoperability across connected products, apps and services. Initially developed by Qualcomm Innovation Center Inc., AllJoyn is now hosted as an open source project by the AllSeen Alliance.
