UMS in CHIP magazine

Post by SubJunk » Thu Jul 17, 2014 7:34 pm

UMS is being included in the upcoming August edition of CHIP magazine, which is Germany's most popular monthly PC magazine!

They are including UMS on the DVD that comes with the magazine, as well as giving us a short writeup in the magazine itself and on their website. Here's their UMS page and here's us on their Freeware of the Month page.
They were also kind enough to send us a copy of the magazine and we've scanned the cover and the page that UMS is on:

This is huge validation for our team as we work hard to bring you this program, so congrats to all of my fellow UMS team members on our achievement!

If you don't speak German and are wondering what the article says in English, it's roughly this:
Whether you use a laptop, PS3 or tablet, with Universal Media Server (UMS for short) you can transform your device into a multimedia hub. The tool supports the two standards DLNA and UPnP, so most devices automatically recognize the shared media and play. This applies to pictures, music and videos.

Tip: If there are any necessary components missing, they will be downloaded and installed from the Internet automatically.
Thanks a lot to Karsten Bunz and the team at CHIP! :)

Great achievement! I'm very happy to see such a good project being recognized by it's great features. I'm proud to have contributed to put some bytes of code (little compared to the whole code, of project) in it.
