The  UPnP forum defined an Audio Visual specification,  UPnP AV, which defined the interaction between UPnP control points and UPnP devices. The UPnP AV architecture was designed to be independent of device type, content format and transfer protocol.

The Kinsky software suite is a range of UPnP control point implementations as defined in the UPnP AV specification. The UPnP page gives an overview of how a control point fits into the overall UPnP AV architecture.

A Kinsky control point coordinates the operation between Media Servers, Silver Disk Players and Media Renderers, in response to user interaction.
