Association offers display members a free license to WiSA E wireless multichannel audio transport software to build certified WiSA E-interoperable transmitter sources
WiSA Association, a subsidiary of WiSA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WISA), continues to lead the wireless multichannel audio industry forward by offering a free license to WiSA E software to all WiSA Association display (HDTV and projector) members as of December 31, 2023. The license allows display members to implement WiSA E wireless immersive audio transmitter technology in any or all of their display platforms. With WiSA E, brands can provide consumers a range of wireless audio options, including support for Dolby Atmos(r) and FlexConnect and full interoperability with any of the WiSA E-enabled speakers offered by the many WiSA Association speaker brands.
“WiSA Association members are clamoring for the next big leap in immersive audio,” said Tony Ostrom, president of the WiSA Association. “To support our members and propel our mission of building an ecosystem of interoperable wireless audio brands, the WiSA Association has negotiated a free license to WiSA E transmit technology for our display brands. This is a huge win for these members, their consumers and retailers, and the future of the audio industry.”
WiSA E is a powerful and versatile software-based wireless audio technology that can be implemented in a number of ways, from entry-level 2-channel functionality up to 8 full channels, giving ultimate design flexibility to TV and projector brands. As software, WiSA E can be ported onto any display platform. WiSA E can also be implemented as a chip-on-board solution.
“Our goal is to provide our display members with optionality,” said Ostrom. “At the close of this year, any display member can take advantage of this program and know they have the ability to offer WiSA E wireless transmit technology to their customers royalty-free.”
The WiSA Association includes more than 70 leading speaker and HDTV brands focused on growing the wireless immersive audio ecosystem by providing stunning immersive audio experiences to consumers at all price points. All display brands are encouraged to join the association to take advantage of this program. A WiSA E software port to any display platform will be demonstrated at CES 2024.
