SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WiSA® LLC, founded by Summit Wireless Technologies (NASDAQ: WISA), today announced that Association member Foxconn will showcase WiSA technology in the form of the award-winning WiSA SoundSend and 5.1 WiSA Certified speaker system around its big, bold and beautiful 120-inch 8K TV at the Appliance & Electronics World Expo (AWE) in Shanghai, China, March 23-25.
The Foxconn booth at AWE will highlight immersive home entertainment audio and video experiences that are possible when a breathtakingly large and stunning screen is combined with a Tuned by THX™ 5.1 audio system that can be set up in minutes. The Sharp-branded 8K TV utilizes ARC/eARC and CEC to connect and communicate perfectly with the WiSA SoundSend, while mobile applications for iOS and Android make advanced tuning a simple process.
“We are thrilled to partner with Foxconn and Sharp at AWE to show what is possible when stunning, large-scale video and immersive audio are combined,” stated Tony Ostrom, WiSA President. “As TVs get bigger and more capable of accessing stunning, highly-produced content, we strive to enable the home entertainment experience to include amazing audio that is both easy to use and readily available. This combined demo at AWE is a great example of that goal being achieved.”
AWE is Asia’s largest consumer electronics show and offers top-tier products, technology exchange platforms, and CE brands from around the world. After being put on hold in 2020 due to the pandemic, this year’s expo will adhere to health and safety regulations to ensure a successful event.
