2015CES - Summit Delivers Breakthrough Technology for Wireless Home Audio

Summit Semiconductor Will Demonstrate at 2015 International CES a New High Resolution Wireless Audio Technology Which Combines Both Home Theater and Whole House Multi-Zone Capabilities

Summit Semiconductor, a leader in advanced wireless audio technologies, today announced they will demonstrate a wireless multi-channel home theater system capable of simultaneously streaming a stereo pair to different zones within the home. The demonstration system is based on Summit's recently announced extended distance transmit and receive modules that support the Wireless Speaker and Audio (WiSA®) Association's updated compliance and interoperability test specification. The new interoperability specification combines the benefits of home theater multi-channel audio with whole house, multi-zone stereo applications.


"Consumers are gravitating toward wireless audio technology within the home and clearly understand the benefits of reduced installation cost and time. And, according to Sarah Carroll, director of Futuresource Consulting, 'Audio hardware is one of the bright spots of the CE industry, with 76% global growth in shipments of wireless speakers forecast for this year,'" said Tony Parker, vice president of marketing Summit Semiconductor. "WiSA certified products are known for best in class home theater performance and interoperability with different speaker brands. A single extended distance module can now concurrently play a 5.1 home theater system and stream other audio content into multiple zones within the home."

If you are interested in receiving a product demonstration at 2015 International CES, January 6-9, 2015, please visit The Venetian Hotel suite 30-217. For an appointment please contact Tony Parker at tparker@summitsemi.com.
