All these companies are shipping or committed to ship WiSA Ready TVs, which 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. Cumulatively, 20 million WiSA Ready TVs are expected by the end of 2020.

“WiSA’s rapid adoption as the de facto standard in wireless, high-resolution audio is apparent with 20 million WiSA Ready TVs anticipated in market in 2020,” notes Tony Ostrom, president of WiSA. “Speakerless WiSA Ready TVs are anticipated to enter the market in 2020, and when connected with a WiSA USB Transmitter, will seamlessly deliver immersive audio to WiSA Certified sound bars and speaker systems ranging from 2.0 to 5.1 configurations. WiSA is poised to play a critical role as the industry moves in this direction.”

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, 7.1 and 5.1.2 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 and its members.
