According to Frits Wittgrefe, “We see our multi-room audio streaming products and services offering as a real complement to the WiSA high resolution, in-room home theater audio technology. We have successfully implemented our first customer project using StreamUnlimited’s multi-room and WiSA's in-room technology.
