Vestel to Develop TVs Featuring DTS Play-Fi Multi-Room Audio and Surround Sound Technologies
DTS announced today that Vestel, a global consumer electronics manufacturer, will support DTS Play-Fi on their TVs.
One of the world’s leading TV producers, Vestel designs and manufactures TVs for major brands around the globe. At the cutting-edge of European design, it’s renowned for bringing the latest television technologies to market first, offering ultra-fast product turnarounds as well as incredibly competitive price points for even the most world-class TV models.
“Vestel’s impressive scale and rich stable of CE brands further extends the reach of Play-Fi into people’s homes,” said Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi. “Partnering with Vestel continues our mission of bringing true wireless interoperability to the biggest and best consumer electronics manufacturers around the world.”
DTS Play-Fi’s category-leading wireless audio features include surround sound, whole-home TV audio streaming, Hi-Res 24bit/192kHz support, multi-room music and app-based wireless headphones allowing partners to create truly 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.
“Wires are the biggest impediment to the adoption of better sound in the living room” said Barış Altınkaya, Deputy General Manager of Marketing and Product Management, Vestel. “DTS Play-Fi breaks through that barrier by wirelessly sending multi-room audio and immersive surround sound from the TV to speakers in the room and throughout the home, reproducing the best immersive audio experiences free of the unsightly cables, wires and adapters that hinder adoption.”
“Consumer electronics companies have seen the benefits of adopting our DTS Play-Fi technology,” added Gabriel Cosgrave, general manager, EMEA, Xperi. “Adding Vestel’s licensed brands to the ecosystem gives consumers even more choice when creating an extraordinary wire-free audio experience in their homes.”
