The upcoming display lineup will support high quality wireless audio.
Summit Wireless has announced a new partnership with LG. As part of the collaboration. LG will utilize Summit technology and WiSA Certification to make their 2019 OLED and flagship UHD LCD TVs "WiSA Ready."
"Intelligent TVs are the centerpiece of today's next generation home entertainment systems and audio is essential to the overall experience," stated Tim Alessi, senior director, product marketing at LG Electronics. "With WiSA Ready displays, we recognize the tremendous benefits that consumers will enjoy in taking advantage of truly immersive, wireless sound that complements all kinds of big screen home entertainment from movies and video to games, esports, and more."
With "WiSA Ready" support compatible 2019 LG displays will be able to provide wireless audio with low-latency speaker synchronization and hi-fidelity sound via WiSA USB Transmitters and a variety of WiSA Certified speakers, including products from brands like Klipsch, Bang & Olufsen, Axiim, and Enclave Audio. Summit's WiSA tech can handle up to 8 channels of uncompressed 24-bit audio, including immersive audio formats like Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Likewise, the tech's network performance offers superior latency over standard Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, with just 5ms of lag time.
"LG is a brand synonymous with leadership, innovation and quality, and together we are championing the WiSA industry standard, which delivers wireless, immersive hi-fidelity sound capabilities with tremendous benefits to both manufacturers and consumers worldwide," noted Brett Moyer, president and CEO of Summit Wireless Technologies. "WiSA Ready LG TVs are an integral part of our delivering next generation audio to a mass, global market with seamless compatibilities and ease of setup."
Full details on LG's 2019 display lineup are expected to be announced at CES 2019 in Las Vegas on January 8 through January 11.
