Hansong Announces WiSA Compliant HDMI Adapter and Enhanced Audio Hub For Transmitting Wireless Multichannel and Streaming Audio Product Demonstrations at CEDIA Expo 2013

"Consumers are clamoring for a cost effective solution that addresses the need for a high quality wireless surround sound audio experience that matches the enhanced quality of the video display"

Westfield, IN, September 18, 2013 - Hansong Technology, a world leader in audio electronics design and manufacturing and an Advisory Board member of the Wireless Speaker and Audio (WiSA™) Association today announced the availability of two new product designs: an entry level HDMI adapter device for transmitting HD surround sound audio and an advanced audio hub device transmitting wireless HD audio from multiple input sources for home theater systems.


The adapter device provides basic connectivity through an HDMI port connected to an HDTV for transmitting wireless HD audio to WiSA-compliant speakers. Additionally, the adapter features Bluetooth connectivity for wireless streaming and set up. The wireless audio hub provides multiple connectivity options and audio decoding via HDMI, SPDIF, DLNA and Bluetooth from multiple content sources such as Blu-ray Disc™ players, HDTVs, set-top-boxes, gaming consoles and hand-held devices such as smartphones and tablets.

The audio hub has features that enhance the user experience by providing the ability to control the power on or off, volume, and instantly adjusting the sweet spot as well as selecting input sources through an on screen display or from a handheld device. 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.

"Consumers are clamoring for a cost effective solution that addresses the need for a high quality wireless surround sound audio experience that matches the enhanced quality of the video display," said Jim Venable, president of the WiSA Association. "To address these issues, our members have specifically asked for a cost effective simple adapter as well as an enhanced audio hub reference designs to accelerate their product introductions, saving them time and engineering costs. Hansong has delivered on that request and we are thrilled to showcase their new product offerings in our sound room (13) during CEDIA Expo in Denver, CO, September 26-28, 2013."

"As one of the first advisory board members of the WiSA Association, we are extremely pleased to be able to offer these outstanding products that address the consumers' desire for a high quality, highly reliable solution that delivers uncompromised surround sound audio for the home theater," said Helge Kristensen, vice president of Hansong Technology.
