BERLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hot on the heels of a string of wins at the 2022-2023 EISA Awards, DTS will showcase several new offerings at IFA in Berlin, bringing its award-winning hi-res wireless sound to more home theater systems. DTS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: XPER), now offers the highest range of hi-res audio support of any whole home wireless solution. With new products launching at IFA, DTS Play-Fi will be the only whole home wireless solution to support 7.1.4 surround sound, which offers more channels for a higher-caliber audio experience.
“We are excited to be partnering with leaders such as Vestel and Philips to bring the extraordinary DTS Play-Fi sound experience to more homes around the world,” said Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi. “As we approach our 30th anniversary, DTS continues to be the benchmark for the highest-quality sound that delivers immersive entertainment experiences.”
IFA attendees will get the first look at Vestel’s first DTS Play-Fi enabled TVs. Vestel is a renowned manufacturer of TVs under several licensed brands, including Toshiba and JVC. The addition of Play-Fi gives Vestel TVs access to leading music services, such as Tidal and Amazon Music. Additional functions include: multi-room audio capabilities for music and TV sound, a portable listening experience that extends TV audio to iOS and Android mobile devices and interoperability with more than 400 Play-Fi products from 30+ brands. Play-Fi will be made available as an OTA update in select TV models, with new models launching soon.
In addition, DTS Play-Fi Home Theater for TVs is coming to Philips’ award-winning OLED+937, OLED807, and PUS8807 “The One” TV lines. DTS Play-Fi Home Theater is the first technology to provide wireless surround sound using the TV’s built-in Wi-Fi. No dongles, cables, or wires are needed to create an immersive sound experience directly from the TV.
For 2022, Play-Fi Home Theater has added more ways to customize the listening experience including:
- Using a pair of speakers as Left and Right for the front channels, with or without a dedicated center channel, to create a wider front soundstage
- Using the TV’s built-in speakers as a center channel for improved imaging and dialogue clarity
- Using a stereo amplifier to drive rear surround speakers for additional flexibility including in-wall architectural installations
All-New DTS Play-Fi Home Theater for Speakers
The award-winning wireless surround sound technology for TVs is coming to speakers. DTS Play-Fi Home Theater for Speakers will power a whole new generation of products with immersive playback support for music and movies. Users can mix-and-match soundbars and speakers, incorporating upfiring sound elements, with subwoofers to create wireless speaker configurations from 2.0 up to 7.2.4, a first for any Wi-Fi based system. This technology is now available in the new Philips Fidelio FB1 Soundbar, the FS1 Speaker, and the FW1 Subwoofer.
Gapless Playback Arrives on DTS Play-Fi
Gapless playback is supported in the latest 8.1 release of the DTS Play-Fi App. With the latest update, listeners can enjoy their favorite albums without experiencing interruptions or “gaps” in playback between tracks. High resolution, up to 24-bit/192kHz, gapless playback is supported across available music services, including local playback and from media servers, on compatible devices.
