WiSA LLC, founded by Summit Wireless Technologies, is set to launch its WiSA SoundSend audio transmitter, the association’s first branded product to hit the market since its inception. The SoundSend is an HDMI (or optical)-connected transmitter designed to make wireless multichannel audio accessible in minutes to nearly every smart TV.
The product will be available for purchase in November of 2020 and will retail for $179 US MSRP.
“The SoundSend is the perfect solution to accompany today’s smart televisions that deliver millions of hours of highly-produced content with multichannel audio coming from hundreds of sources,” said Tony Ostrom, president of WiSA. “The product’s unprecedented and seamless connectivity provides consumers the freedom to mix and match WiSA Certified components to create a fully interoperable surround sound system.”
The WiSA SoundSend allows home cinema audio systems to be more easily set up using WiSA wireless audio technology. The SoundSend transmitter, which works with smart TVs with ARC/eARC capabilities, connects to WiSA Certified speakers from brands like Klipsch, Savant, Dynaudio, and Enclave Audio.
Designed to enhance the simplicity of true multichannel audio by connecting to any smart TV, SoundSend delivers unparalleled high-definition audio without the hassle of wires, making it easy to connect without a complicated installation process.
In two easy steps, and without needing Wi-Fi, one can connect WiSA Certified speakers to power and plug the HDMI transmitter into the TV. SoundSend then automatically finds and connects to WiSA Certified speakers. The TV remote is then used for daily operation while the SoundSend send app offers tuning features that customize the speaker system to personal preferences. Once setup is finalized, SoundSend, with its wireless audio quality of up to 24bit/96kHz, transmits up to eight audio channels and decodes Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital + and Dolby Atmos.
My Zone, one of SoundSend’s features, finetunes the system by calibrating each speaker to the listener’s location to create a sweet spot for the best possible entertainment experience.
