With 3.0.0, a new DLNA export tool have been created. Run digiKam from
your host computer export desired album through DLNA, and that all.
image are now visible on your tablet (install right DLNA support
application from store of course), or on your connected TV.

i do it at home with my Sony Bravia TV which support DLNA by default,
or with my iPad with Media::Connect application.
