Major HDTV Brand Signs WiSA E 5-Year License

First Licensee of WiSA E Software Ships 10+ Million HDTVs Annually

WiSA Association, a subsidiary of WiSA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WISA), announces its first licensee of WiSA E software. The licensee, a global brand with over 10 million HDTVs sold annually, will now be able to provide its consumers with a range of wireless immersive audio options including full interoperability with any of the WiSA E-enabled speakers offered by the many WiSA Association speaker brands. The 5-year license allows the licensee to implement WiSA E wireless immersive audio transmitter technology in any or all the member’s HDTV platforms.

“We are pleased that our first licensee of WiSA E technology is a well-known global HDTV brand,” said Tony Ostrom, president of the WiSA Association. “We launched this special licensing program for WiSA Association members 60 days ago and have been thrilled at the overwhelming positive member reaction. We fully expect many other HDTV, soundbar, and projector brands to follow suit.”

WiSA E entails a full suite of audio features that define how audio should be experienced across HDTVs, soundbars, projectors, mobile devices, set-top boxes and speakers. For licensees, WiSA E is a complete embedded audio solution that touches the entire sound ecosystem.

  • High-quality multichannel audio transport over standard Wi-Fi
  • Embedded design programs for Android and Linux to support porting of WiSA E software onto popular HDTV SoC providers such as Realtek, Amlogic, Mediatek, and Novatek
  • WiSA-certified IoT modules for cost-effective integration with interoperable WiSA E-enabled speakers
  • Universal control across all audio platforms with WiSA Connect - a set of tested API commands that significantly reduce code complexity and development time
  • Multiple manufacturing capabilities to optimize licensees’ production flows

“WiSA E was designed to give brands powerful options to cost-effectively improve their audio offering to their customers,” said Ostrom. “By licensing WiSA E, brands can embed superior audio performance in their products while reducing overall BOM cost.”

The WiSA Association includes more than 70 leading speaker and HDTV brands focused on growing the wireless immersive audio ecosystem by providing stunning immersive audio experiences to consumers at all price points. Current WiSA HDTV Association members include LG, TCL, Hisense, Skyworth, and Bang & Olufsen.
