Select Play-Fi products can now download the update.
DTS has announced the launch of a new Whole-Home TV Audio Streaming feature for its DTS Play-Fi platform. The update allows customers to stream audio from any connected source (like a TV) to other DTS Play-Fi speakers in the home ecosystem.
"We are excited to add whole-home TV audio streaming to the DTS Play-Fi ecosystem, allowing consumers to broadcast audio from their TV to other speakers without an echo or compromised video synchronization," said Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi, at Xperi. “Whether you’re hosting a Big Game watch party, or just listening to your favorite show while cooking, DTS Play-Fi provides a no-compromise whole-home experience for TV listening. Additional DTS Play-Fi partners will incorporate the technology into their DTS Play-Fi enabled products this year, giving consumers even more flexibility when selecting their home theater products."
With Whole-Home TV Audio Streaming, users can now send audio from a connected video source to supported DTS Play-Fi speakers, synchronizing the speakers to each other and to the video through lip-synch accurate and echo-free multi-room playback. The update is now available to download for free on the following Play-Fi devices:
Klipsch Gate receiver
Klipsch PowerGate amplifier
Klipsch RSB-8 sound bar
Klipsch RSB-14 sound bar
Klipsch RW-1 speaker
Klipsch The Capitol Three speaker
Klipsch The Three speaker
McIntosh MB50 streaming audio player
Onkyo Smart Speaker G3
Paradigm PW LINK pre-amplifier
Phorus PS10 speaker
Pioneer Elite Smart Speaker F4
Polk S6 speaker
And beyond the new TV streaming feature, DTS Play-Fit tech enables customers to wirelessly play high quality lossless music from smartphones and tablets over an existing Wi-Fi network throughout the home. The tech can synchronize playback of a single source to multiple speakers; can stream different sources to different speakers simultaneously from the same mobile device; and can support individual music streams to separate speakers from different devices at the same time. Likewise, Play-Fi is not brand exclusive. This means that Play-Fi audio products from different manufacturers can actually work together seamlessly.
