Lynx Enters the Smart Home

January 03, 2017
Today I’m proud to announce our entrance into the Smart Home market with our new product, SmartLynx.  If you know Lynx, our beginnings go back to a company called PacketVideo.  PacketVideo began with a mission to watch live TV on a feature phone, way back in 1998.   Since then the company has evolved into Lynx, and our focus has been on connected home use cases around photos, videos and music.   We have become extremely adept in providing robust and reliable media sharing solutions to consumer electronics manufacturers and service providers across the globe.   We are somewhat invisible to the end consumer, but believe me we are there when they are beaming their favorite videos and photos to connected TVs, or playing their favorite tunes on their connected speakers.  We have been providing this capability for 13 years now, and have improved and innovated it every year. read full blog
