SAN JOSE, Calif. (August 11, 2021) — WiSA® LLC, founded by Summit Wireless Technologies (NASDAQ: WISA), today announced that LG Electronics’ recently-launched QNED Mini LED TVs, have been certified as WiSA Ready™, further expanding its lineup of existing WiSA Ready TV models. The launch marks the fourth WiSA Ready product family rollout from LG this year, which also includes the brand’s latest award-winning LG OLED TVs and LG NanoCell TVs as well as its CineBeam laser projector.
Being the first Mini LED TVs with WiSA Ready capabilities, LG’s QNED Mini LED TVs easily connect to WiSA USB Transmitters, allowing seamless wireless audio and control communication with all WiSA Certified™ speakers from well-known brands like Bang & Olufsen, HARMAN, Klipsch, System Audio and many more.
“This series truly represents the dawn of a new era for LED TVs,” said Tim Alessi, LG USA’s senior director of home entertainment product marketing. “Consumers can expect high-end brightness levels and support of Dolby Vision HDR, Dolby Atmos, hands-free voice control and more. We are excited to continue the momentum and bring forth new and exciting TVs that present wireless home cinema options through integrated WiSA technology.”
The new LG QNED Mini LED lineup includes six new 4K and 8K models offering large screen-size options of 65, 75 and 86 inches.
“The Association is consistently amazed with LG Electronics’ innovative products that seamlessly fit into the growing wireless home cinema category,” said Tony Ostrom, WiSA President. “The QNED Mini LED TVs, which deliver stunning pictures and industry-leading audio support features, are a prime example of what sets our Association’s members apart from other CE brands.”
LG Electronics continues to lead the way among WiSA member brands, including Hisense, Skyworth, Bang & Olufsen and more, who have integrated WiSA technology into their premium TVs.
