WiSA Technologies Announces 3-Channel Output Support for its WiSA E Receiver Module

September 21, 2023

New module lowers the cost of Atmos-based soundbars and minimizes the number of speakers required for true immersive audio

BEAVERTON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- WiSA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WISA), a leading provider of immersive, wireless sound technology for intelligent devices and next-generation home entertainment systems, has added 3-channel output capabilities to its WiSA E receiver module. Three separate wireless audio channels can now be combined into a single speaker enclosure significantly reducing system cost while maintaining the immersive ATMOS sound field that everyone has come to enjoy. For example, in a 7.1.4 soundbar system, one WiSA E Rx module can enable rear channel support for two surround channels (e.g., right surround, right rear) as well as an up-firing height channel, further minimizing the number of discrete speakers required for a soundbar to deliver Atmos immersive audio.

“This is a game changer for soundbar manufacturers that want to offer a compact, fully immersive 7.1.4 audio system without giving up audio performance,” says Tony Parker, vice president of business development and strategy. “With 3-channels of receiver output in combination with a single WiSA E receiver, soundbars can combine multiple speakers into four discrete enclosures; what used to require 11 different discrete speakers can now be delivered with 4 speaker enclosures.”

WiSA E offers the highest quality wireless 8-channel audio on the market with 24-bit high-resolution, tight speaker synchronization and a fixed low latency of 20 ms. With its 3-channel out capability, WiSA E modules maintain this highest quality while minimizing the number of speaker enclosures required for advanced 7.1.4 Atmos sound systems. WiSA Technologies will be demonstrating its WiSA E 3-channel output functionality at CES 2024 in Las Vegas.
