New Wireless Ceiling Speaker From Lithe Audio Uses Summit Wireless Technology For Immersive Sound
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 11, 2020--
Summit Wireless Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WISA), a leading provider of immersive, wireless sound technology for intelligent devices and next-generation home entertainment systems, today partnered with Lithe Audio, which will launch a 6.5 inch ceiling speaker at the Integrated Systems Europe show, February 11-14th. The speaker will be powered over ethernet (PoE) and will support popular streaming applications such as Airplay 2, Google Cast and Alexa. With the addition of the Summit module, Lithe Audio customers will be able to leverage the speaker in commercial and cinema environments.
The new speaker offering takes advantage of Summit’s proven wireless audio technology, capable of supporting up to 8 speakers. The wireless platform transmits high-resolution 24-bit digital audio at 48kHz / 96kHz with less than 1/10th the latency of a Bluetooth audio device, keeping movie soundtracks and music content in perfect sync. Summit technology ensures that all speakers in the system are synchronized within 1 micro second, which eliminates any chance of phase distortion, even when using all eight channels.
“By far, the Summit wireless audio technology is the most robust we’ve tested,” said Wesley Siu, co-founder and director of Lithe Audio, Limited. “At Lithe Audio, our ceiling speaker customers demand quality, and with Summit technology you get both a reliable wireless link without compromising audio performance.”
