WiSA Association Opens Authorized Test Center


By RS Staff June 12,2013


The WiSA Association has opened its first authorized test center, in Sunnyvale, CA. The ATC will be managed by Simplay Labs, with testing centers in the U.S., China, and Korea.
 
The WiSA test center is now operational and in the process of receiving, testing, and certifying association members’ wireless products for the home theater market in accordance with the WiSA Compliance Test Specification (CTS).

The ATC is set up to test products ranging from receiving devices like wireless speakers and soundbars to transmitting devices like Blu-ray Disc players, set-top boxes, HDTVs, AV receivers, gaming consoles, media hubs, and other electronic devices. 

The testing program has been designed to provide assurance to both the manufacturer and the consumer that the wireless link between the transmitting device and the receiving devices is compliant to the test specification and certifies the devices’ interoperability with other WiSA-compliant products.

The opening of the test center was achieved 18 months after the formation of the association.

“The Association learned by the mistakes other connectivity technologies made such as rushing products into the market only to see them fail because they had not created their own testing and compliance organizations,” said Jim Venable, president of the WiSA Association. “We knew from the beginning that instilling confidence in the consumer that WiSA-enabled products will work ‘out of the box’ when they get them home is critical for our overall success. “

Companies who wish to know more about the technology and investigate joining the WiSA Association can go to wisaassociation.org to download the white paper and click on “becoming a member” for additional information. If you are already a member of the association and would like to learn more about the certification process or submit your products for testing, you may log in to the members only section of the website to review the Compliance Test Specification (CTS), the Interoperability Requirements Document (IRD) and the Compliance Declaration Form (CDF). If you do not have a login, send a request for a login to info@wisaassociation.org.
