TCL to incorporate DTS Play-Fi’s multi-room audio and surround sound technologies in select new products in 2022
TCL, a globally-renowned consumer electronics manufacturing company, is joining the DTS Play-Fi ecosystem to enhance the consumer experience in the home. Since 2015, TCL remains the third-largest television manufacturer by market share.
“Xperi creates extraordinary experiences at home and on the go for millions of consumers around the world, elevating content and how audiences connect with it in a way that is more intelligent, immersive and personal. Today, consumers expect these experiences to work seamlessly and without wires,” said Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi. “We are thrilled to collaborate with TCL to extend the reach and adoption of Play-Fi enabled products in the market. This collaboration furthers our mission of bringing true wireless interoperability to the largest and ‘best-of-breed’ consumer electronics manufacturers around the world.”
DTS Play-Fi’s category-leading wireless audio technology includes surround sound, whole-home TV audio streaming, Hi-Res 24bit/192kHz support, multi-room music and app-based wireless headphones, allowing partners to create differentiated products that elevate the user experience. Because Play-Fi works over industry standard Wi-Fi, no additional hardware is required to add advanced wireless capabilities across a wide range of products and price points that already feature Wi-Fi connectivity.
“TCL’s collaboration with the DTS Play-Fi ecosystem creates an unprecedented opportunity to offer the richest audio sound to consumers, without the barrier of multiple wires to connect to one’s home entertainment experience,” said Bill Jiang, General Manager of TCL Industries Overseas Business Group, TCL industrial holdings Co. LTD. “Consumers will have more choice of products and price points with DTS Play-Fi and TCL.”
The DTS Play-Fi ecosystem features the largest collection of products in the whole-home wireless audio space, with hundreds of interoperable speakers, televisions, sound bars, set-top boxes and A/V receivers available from the top names in premium audio including Aerix, Anthem, Arcam, Audiolab, Definitive Technology, DISH TV, Elite, Hisense, Integra, Klipsch, Loewe, MartinLogan, McIntosh, Onkyo, Paradigm, Philips, Phorus, Pioneer, Polk Audio, Porsche Design, Quad, Rotel, Sonus faber, SVS Sound, Wharfedale and Wren Sound.
