WiSA has unveiled the “WiSA Ready” certification, which coincides with the launch of the industry’s first WiSA Ready USB transmitter from founding member Summit Wireless Technologies, Inc, which will be compatible with forthcoming WiSA Ready sources.
The new WiSA Ready certification will clearly identify entertainment sources — such as TVs, gaming systems or computers — that are equipped to deliver up to eight channels of high-definition audio to WiSA Certified speakers when connected with a WiSA USB transmitter. This new program simplifies consumer setup and reduces costs by replacing AV receivers or wireless hubs with a low-cost USB accessory.
The new certification coincides with the launch of the industry’s first-ever WiSA Ready USB transmitter from Summit Wireless Technologies. As a compact USB accessory, the transmitter plugs into WiSA Ready sources to deliver an immersive audio experience with WiSA Certified interoperable products.
Once plugged in, the USB transmitter enables wireless, multichannel communication of low-latency, tightly synchronized, high-definition audio between any WiSA Certified components, making it ideal for today’s intelligent devices and next generation home entertainment systems, while eliminating the cost and complexities of traditional wired solutions.
The WiSA Ready USB transmitter from Summit Wireless will be available for purchase in the fourth quarter. For more information about the WiSA Association, visit www.wisaassociation.com.
