Hisense is joining LG, B&O, TCL and other TV makers in support for WiSA, the wireless platform for TV audio. Hisense 2021 models will be WiSA Ready.
Hisense TVs with WiSA
Hisense confirmed that its 2021 TV models (in the US) will be certified 'WiSA Ready'. It means that the user can buy a WiSA USB transmitter to allow the TV to wirelessly transmit TV audio to compatible speakers.
- "Hisense is proud to be pushing the performance envelopes of video and audio with the launch of our 2021 North America TV models," said David Gold, President of Hisense America. "WiSA continues to lead the emerging wireless audio category and we are proud to achieve WiSA Ready Certification and deliver solutions that will provide amazing, convenient, and immersive entertainment experiences for millions of consumers."
LG, Microsoft Xbox, Bang & Olufsen, TCL, Harman Kardon, Sound United (Denon, Marantz, Polk, more), Eastech, JBL, Klipsh, axiim, Pioneer, Almando, Primare, GoldenEar, and Electrocompaniet are all members of the association.
WiSA says that its technology supports high definition, multi-channel, low-latency audio for movies, gaming, and more. In 2020, the organization announced plans to add support for Dolby Atmos. It also launched a small transmitter box to enable consumers to use WiSA with TVs that do not have the capabilities built-in.
