TwonkyMedia server (TMS) is DLNA-compliant[1] UPnP AV server software originally offered by TwonkyVision GmbH and sold by Lynx Technology. Development and support ceased October 2018 with the shutdown of Lynx Technology Germany GmbH. TMS runs on Linux, Mac OS X, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Home Server, and Windows 7 computers as well as Android, iOS, and other mobile platforms. TwonkyMedia server can be used to share and stream media to most UPnP AV or DLNA-compliant clients, in addition to non-UPnP devices through the HTML, RSS, and JSON supported front ends. After the PacketVideo acquisition of Berlin-based TwonkyVision GmbH by 17 October 2006[2], Twonky was renamed PVConnect by November 2007[3][4][5], but the name was changed back to TwonkyMedia server by 7 January 2010.[6][7][8] Corporate parent NTT DOCOMO sold PacketVideo NorthAmerica and Europe to Lynx Technology on 10 May 2015 and PacketVideo Japan exactly one year later on 10 May 2016 transfering the Twonky product line to Lynx, renaming TwonkyMedia Server to Twonky Server. Twonky Server was maintained all the time by the former TwonkyVision employees which worked for the German subsidiary Lynx Germany GmbH. Lynx Germany GmbH was shut down 10/2018.[9][10][11]
