WiSA® LLC, an Association of leading consumer electronics brands and founded by Summit Wireless Technologies (NASDAQ: WISA) announces the certification of the “Link” WiSA USB Transmitter from Association member Axiim. The Axiim Link plugs into any WiSA Ready audio source including TVs, gaming systems and PCs and allows them to easily connect to any speakers certified by the WiSA Association. The Axiim Link transmitter is also the first and only wireless, high-resolution device designed for Xbox One and Windows PCs that is also WiSA Certified.
The WiSA Association and its members are committed to revolutionizing the home entertainment experience by delivering immersive, uncompressed, high-definition, multichannel sound through the universal standards established and certified by the WiSA Association.
“The Axiim team is super excited to support the growing number of smart TV display manufacturers bringing WiSA-Ready products with immersive sound capabilities to market in 2019 and enabling the Xbox gamer, the PC gamer, and Esports enthusiasts to get in on the action with a full room of directional sound” said James Hammer CEO of Axiim.

Launched in September 2018, the new WiSA Ready certification clearly identifies entertainment sources – such as TVs, gaming systems or computers – that are equipped to deliver up to eight channels of high-definition wireless audio to WiSA Certified speakers when connected with a WiSA USB transmitter. This new program simplifies consumer set-up and reduces costs by replacing AV receivers with a low-cost USB accessory.
