Q&A with Amit Ravat, Co-Founder and Director, Lithe Audio.
Why CEDIA Expo 2022?
Five years after introducing our first all-in-on Bluetooth speaker in Europe, Lithe Audio is ready to jump head-first into the U.S. market with a range of wireless audio systems. And there’s no better place to debut our products than CEDIA Expo. It’s the gathering place for residential home technology integrators and distributors, providing us with a can’t-miss opportunity to engage with potential customers and create meaningful relationships.
What is the most exciting trend you expect to see at the show?
One thing we’re expecting to see at CEDIA Expo 2022 is how the industry is responding to an increased demand for immersive home theater experiences. With technologies like WiSA delivering wireless in-ceiling audio in high resolution — with no cables or amplifiers required — this is an exciting new trend in home audio. We’re also curious to see how Covid has shaped the design of the latest AV systems. With the amount of time people spend at home skyrocketing over the past few years, today’s systems need to be designed for work, play, and our overall well-being. We’re looking forward to experiencing these all-in-one solutions.
What will you focus on at the show?
In Dallas, we’ll highlighting our lineup of all-in-one ceiling speakers. Featuring an integrated amplifier, connectivity, and high-quality speaker components in one device, each system only requires a power source for installation, making it easy for integrators to provide their clients with powerful yet simple wireless audio streaming, from single rooms to multiroom distributed audio. The star of the show will be our Pro Series Wi-Fi Multi-Room Ceiling Speaker, which was a winner of a 2020 CEDIA EMEA Award in the Best New Hardware category. In addition to supporting full high-resolution audio, the Pro Series features an optical input and two Ethernet ports — one for a hardwired network connection, and one for daisy-chaining another speaker. For additional functionality — including PoE capabilities and the ability to create wireless Dolby 5.1, Dolby 7.1, and Dolby Atmos surround-sound home theater systems — the speaker is available with PoE++ and WiSA bolt-on modules. The Pro Series represents a truly unique solution for the U.S. market, and we can’t wait to show off all the benefits it offers.
