SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WiSA® LLC, a subsidiary of WiSA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WISA), today announced that Hisense’s 2022 U7H and U8H Series TVs have earned WiSA SoundSend Certification. In 2021, the WiSA SoundSend Certification program was launched to ensure effortless and simple connection and interoperability between smart TVs and the WiSA SoundSend wireless audio transmitter. The Hisense U7H and U8H received the certified status after they successfully tested to work impeccably with WiSA’s SoundSend.
“We are excited Hisense’s U7H and U8H are now WiSA SoundSend Certified. As a long-time WiSA partner, we take pride in ensuring that our 2022 lineup has more of the premium audio features consumers are looking for – including an interoperable design and effortless pairing with this award-winning wireless audio transmitter,” said David Gold, President of Hisense USA. “Connecting a WiSA SoundSend to the U7H and U8H allows multi-channel audio content to be transmitted, completing an exceptional home cinema experience with robust audio.”
Connecting a WiSA SoundSend to smart TVs like the Hisense U7H and U8H creates a full-fledged home cinema audio system consisting of speakers that use WiSA HT technology and have been certified for interoperability by the WiSA Association. The WiSA SoundSend can readily and simply connect to any modern TV via HDMI ARC/eARC and uses WiSA HT wireless audio technology to allow immersive home cinema audio systems to be set up and connected quickly and easily.
“With the Hisense U7H and U8H Series TVs built to have interoperability with the WiSA SoundSend universal wireless audio transmitter, users will be able to experience quality cinema sound in minutes,” said Tony Ostrom, WiSA President. “It’s our mission as an Association to work with leading brands like Hisense so that their customers can have immersive sound and entertainment at their fingertips at all times.”
