therefore performs much faster than before.

What is Rygel?

Rygel is a collection of DLNA (UPnP AV) services (devices in UPnP
speak), implemented through a plug-in mechanism. UPnP in simplest
words is a set of protocols that defines how different devices on a
home network can seamlessly (without or with minimum configuration)
communicate with each other. UPnP AV defines how multimedia systems
could be built on top of that. DLNA in simple words is a long list of
rules that implementers must comply to if they want to achieve
interoperability with other implementations in the market.
