Summit Wireless Technologies, Inc., a provider of immersive, hi-fidelity, wireless sound technology for intelligent devices and home entertainment systems, and a founding member of WiSA, the Wireless Speaker Audio Association, has announced a global collaboration with LG Electronics. As such, LG will leverage Summit technology and WiSA Certification to make their 2019 lines of OLED and flagship UHD LCD TVs ‘WiSA Ready’ and compatible with WiSA USB Transmitters as well as a range of intelligent, WiSA Certified speakers that together deliver wireless sound for the home entertainment experience.
LG’s 2019 WiSA Ready TVs ensure low-latency, seamless speaker synchronization and hi-fidelity sound via a range of already available WiSA Certified intelligent speakers from global providers such as Klipsch, Bang & Olufsen, Axiim, and Enclave Audio. All WiSA Ready and WiSA Certified components work together to deliver wireless, multichannel audio capabilities.
The full range of Summit’s WiSA technology enables up to eight channels of uncompressed 24-bit audio capable of supporting the latest audio decode formats, including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for an immersive sound experience. Summit’s network performance reduces latency to a negligible 5ms that doesn’t vary with network loading, up to 20 times better than standard Bluetooth and WiFi technologies. According to the company, Summit’s patent-pending ADAPT algorithms for active detection, avoidance and prioritization technology more than doubles wireless network capacity.
