WiSA’s 2019 Momentum Continues with Certification of Platin’s Monaco 5.1 Wireless Home Theater Speaker System
White label 5.1 solution now available for licensing and re-branding, worldwide
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- WiSA® LLC, the Wireless Speaker and Audio Association founded by Summit Wireless Technologies (NASDAQ: WISA) and comprised of leading consumer electronics brands, today announces the certification of the Monaco 5.1 Wireless Home Theater speaker system from Platin, a division of Hansong Technology. The Monaco 5.1 Wireless Home Theater solution is a “white label” product, available immediately for licensing and rebranding by consumer electronics and audio companies worldwide.
The Monaco 5.1 Wireless Home Theater speaker system features the ultimate marriage of performance, simplicity and convenience while delivering award-winning sound with room-filling clarity and bass response. With WiSA certification, the Monaco Speaker System will be able to play wireless, multi-channel audio with low-latency speaker synchronization with any WiSA compatible WiSA Certified™ or WiSA Ready™* sources. This includes new 2019 WiSA Ready LG OLED and Nano Cell (Super UHD) TVs.
Available now, the certification of the Monaco system includes satellite speakers, a center channel speaker and subwoofer. These wireless components can be mixed and matched to create powerful audio systems in any configuration from stereo (2.0) to a 7.1 theater experience. Interested CE and audio brands can contact the Hansong representative in their region for pricing and details.
“Today’s consumers desire high-quality, powerful and aesthetically-pleasing solutions that deliver uncompromised multi-channel sound without the complexity of wires,” said Helge Kristensen, Sr. VP, Hansong Technology. “As the demand for wireless continues to grow, our Monaco speaker system exemplifies a major shift in how passionate listeners consume home entertainment while serving as an ideal product for the industry’s growing number of WiSA Ready platforms.”
All WiSA Certified and WiSA Ready components work together seamlessly to deliver wireless, multi-channel audio and authentic movie theater sound that immerses the listener into the middle of movies and video, music, sports, gaming/esports and more. As a result, consumers can expect an audiophile experience, but unlike traditional audio systems, set up is simple and takes just minutes even for larger 5.1 and 7.1 setups.
“We’re very excited to add the Monaco 5.1 Wireless Home Theater speaker system to our growing list of WiSA Certified and WiSA Ready products entering the market this year,” said Tony Ostrom, president of WiSA. “As we help our members bring more products to market, the Association continues to evolve the landscape of high-definition wireless audio.”
The Monaco 5.1 Wireless Home Theater System comes from Platin’s parent company Hansong Technology, which was established in 1998 as a manufacturer of high performance, premium audio equipment.
