The audio hub also allows the consumer to stream content from their smartphone or tablet via a WiFi or a Bluetooth connection, giving the consumer more flexibility to listen to content from wherever their content resides.
The adapter product is designed to address the legacy TV market with a simple, cost effective solution. Speaker brands can include the adapter with their product offering, giving consumers the choice of buying a 2.1 system today and then scaling up to 7.1 surround sound speakers in the future.
The company is offering a complete ready-to-brand hardware solution that can be immediately taken to production or modified according to the customers’ requirement to address a rapidly developing market. The products are based on the advanced U-Nii frequency band and meet the compliance requirement of the WiSA association’s test specification which ensures interoperability between all speakers and CE devices which carry the WiSA compliance logo.
