The Wireless Speaker and Audio (WiSA) Association has created a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and associated Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to advance the development of wireless audio solutions for home theater, consumer electronics and professional AV markets.
Participation in both groups is open to members of the WiSA Association and the activities pursued by each group may influence the WiSA Compliance Test Specification (CTS) as well as the technology roadmap.
The Technical Advisory Committee will work with other standards bodies such as the IEEE, AES, HDMI, MHL to advance wireless HD audio in their respective specifications. Special Interest Groups will address various challenges facing the audio industry today, such as DTV applications, 802.1 AV bridging, interoperability with other radio technologies, and many other topics. The focus of the first two Special Interest Groups is on addressing DTV connectivity and multi-room wireless HD audio technology.
“We are at a pivotal point in time for providing leadership and new direction for the wireless speaker and audio industry and we welcome the participation of Technical Advisory Committee and Special Interest Groups members in charting the course for wireless HD audio in the home theater,” said Jim Venable, president of the WiSA Association. “The WiSA Association has gained significant momentum with the recent release of the industry’s first Compliance Test Specification for interoperability and I expect our engagement with the Technical Advisory Committee and Special Interest Groups to be equally ground-breaking in driving additional areas of application for high-performance wireless audio.”
The WiSA Association is dedicated to the delivery of high-definition audio content in the home theater environment. Opportunities to participate in the Association exist for Members and Associate Members. Companies and organizations interested in joining a SIG are welcome to contact the Association.
