U.S.-based WISA is a leading provider of immersive, wireless sound technology for intelligent devices and next-generation home entertainment systems. They believe the convenience of wireless audio and outstanding sound quality are not mutually exclusive.
There's a reason why watching a film at the movie theater has been a favorite experience among many; not only is the picture huge but the sound is incredible compared to watching a film at home.
However, the pandemic forced everyone indoors, changing the way we live day-to-day and especially how we consume entertainment. Streaming versus venturing out to movie theaters has become the norm and even with theaters now open, many people are still choosing to stay at home.
This brings attention to an emerging company that is gaining ground on the NASDAQ who is redefining sound with their game changing technology…
WISA recently announced the results of independent lab testing of their new DS 2.4 GHz multichannel wireless audio module which is designed specifically for soundbars with wireless rear speakers and a subwoofer.
Each of the competitive solutions operates in the faster 5 GHz portion of the wireless spectrum and in each case, the DS module outperforms the competition demonstrating its superior reliability, even in the most crowded of Wi-Fi environments. (Testing was performed by Novus Labs.)
"We asked Novus to test the reliability of multichannel audio modules in a real-world environment. In the average home, more and more devices are streaming higher and higher resolution content, which means traffic over a Wi-Fi network is getting more and more congested. We wanted to know how this increase in congestion affects our new DS transceiver module as well as our competitors’ solutions."
-Tony Parker, VP Technical Marketing for WiSA Technologies
WISA also announced that its WiSA SoundSend wireless audio transmitter was named a 2022 Top New Technology (TNT) award winner in the Wireless A/V Solutions category.
