WiSA E Enters the Mobile Market; Enables Android Mobile Devices to Connect to Surrounding Speakers

CES 2024 Demonstration Shows Audio Playback Versatility of WiSA E on Google and Samsung Devices

BEAVERTON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- WiSA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WISA), a leading innovator in wireless audio technology for intelligent devices and next-generation home entertainment systems, announces an implementation of WiSA E that allows users to watch video on their mobile phones and tablets while listening to the fully synchronized audio playback on their WiSA E-enabled speakers. This breakthrough feature will be demonstrated at CES 2024 on Android devices from Google and Samsung.

"We have become so accustomed to experiencing wonderful immersive audio while watching our TVs, but settling for low-quality audio when we stream video from our mobile devices,” said Tony Parker, vice president of technical marketing and strategy. “We recognize the changing landscape of the way high-quality content is consumed in the home; as a result, we are proud to demonstrate how WiSA E seamlessly switches the audio source from a TV to a mobile device with the touch of a button. Consumers can now enjoy fully synchronized video-quality immersive audio from their mobile devices.”

By accessing WiSA Connect intelligent network software, all available WiSA E-enabled Android source devices and speakers can be identified and tracked. Speakers in each room can be grouped together and named (e.g., Living Room, Bedroom, etc.). The demonstration at CES shows how switching sources from a TV to an Android phone or tablet happens seamlessly. Once selected, audio from the streaming mobile device is transmitted and played back from the multiple WiSA E speakers in that group. Audio from mobile devices is no longer restricted to low-quality internal speakers, earbuds, or Bluetooth speakers. WiSA E’s versatility enables fully immersive audio from both TVs as well as an enabled Android audio source device.
