Coherence is an open-source license multimedia computer application developed under the MIT system. As a stand-alone application, Coherence performs as a DLNA/UPnP Media Server. Coherence has an in-built capability to export local files or online media via its back ends to other UPnP clients. With supported clients, Coherence functions as a controllable DLNA/UPnP MediaRenderer. Coherence can also function as a Python framework to enable other applications to access digital-living networks and resources.
Coherence has a comprehensive plug-in architecture which enables it to export via its many back ends to UPnP/DLNA clients: local and/or remote media. In conjunction with GStreamer or Rhythmbox, Coherence forms a controllable DLNA/UPnP Media Renderer.
Coherence features many back-ends as :
