SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- WiSA, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Summit Wireless Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: WISA) and a leading provider of immersive, wireless sound technology for smart devices, announced the integration of WiSA’s immersive sound module into TCL’s new flagship X925 Pro 8K Mini-LED Starlight Smart Screen. The audio module enables users to directly connect the X925 Pro to external speakers and enjoy the highest-quality audio without the hassle of speaker wires.
“The X925 Pro is our flagship product,” said Ellen Wang, R&D Director of TCL. “Our goal was to design a TV that enables the most immersive audio and video experience possible. We chose WiSA’s sound module because it combines the highest quality audio output with the simplicity of a wireless connection to external speakers.”
TCL’s X925 Pro utilizes WiSA’s SWM908SD transmitter module, which can send up to 8-channels of 24-bit, uncompressed audio at 44.1, 48 and 96 kHz sample rates.
“Consumers want the highest-quality immersive audio experience possible,” said Tony Ostrom, president of WiSA, LLC. “This can only happen with external speakers. Traditionally, this meant a dedicated AVR and messy speaker wires. By integrating WiSA’s immersive sound module into the X925 Pro TV, TCL has eliminated the need for external componentry and offers cinema-quality sound with the ease and elegance of a wireless connection.”
TCL’s X925 was awarded the “Best of Innovation” in the High Performance Home Audio and Video category at the CES 2022 show, a testament to the X925’s revolutionary optics, ultra-thin design, and immersive audio capabilities. The X925 is available in major markets worldwide.
