Six Leading Global TV Manufacturers Embrace the WiSA Immersive Audio Standard

June 27 2019, 00:45
WiSA, the Wireless Speaker and Audio Association, comprised of more than 60 leading consumer electronics brands, announced it has expanded its reach to 6 top, global TV manufacturers. Its newest members include Compal, which ships TVs under the Toshiba brand, and Fengmi, an Xiaomi Technology ecosystem company and leading laser projection TV manufacturer. Together, they join LG Electronics, Foxconn, TCL, and Bang & Olufsen as WiSA members to bring WiSA Ready products that offer hi-definition, multi-channel audio home entertainment experiences.

WiSA Ready TVs, gaming PCs and console systems are “ready” to transmit audio to WiSA Certified speakers when a WiSA USB Transmitter is plugged in and a user interface is activated through an APP or product design like LG TVs.

“Given the support of 6 leading global TV brands, and with millions of WiSA Ready systems coming to market this year, the industry continues to embrace the technology standards we’re championing,” notes Tony Ostrom, president of WiSA. “Additionally, later this year, we anticipate the launch of 8K TVs, which will be compatible with a number of WiSA USB Transmitters and all WiSA Certified speakers from WiSA members. We’re excited by the momentum and forthcoming milestones of the second half of the year.”

All WiSA Certified and WiSA Ready components work together seamlessly to deliver wireless, multi-channel audio and authentic home theater sound that immerses the listener into the epicenter of movies and video, music, sports, gaming/esports, and more. As a result, consumers can expect an audiophile experience, but unlike traditional audio systems, set up is simple and takes just minutes, even for larger 5.1 and 7.1 setups.

The WiSA Association and its members are committed to revolutionizing the home entertainment experience by delivering immersive, uncompressed, high-definition, multichannel sound through the universal standards established and certified by the WiSA Association.
