CES 2019: LG OLED TV 2019 Models will be WiSA Ready

LG reveals another feature of the 2019 LG OLED Line-up ahead of CES 2019.

LG let slip in November that the 2019 LG OLED TVs will run on the alpha 9 Generation 2 CPUs with improved capabilities. Ahead of CES 2019, LG also revealed that the new LG OLED TV line-up for 2019 is WiSA Ready.

WiSA (Wireless Speaker and Audio) is a consumer electronics consortium dedicated to creating interoperability standards utilized by leading brands and manufacturers to deliver immersive sound via intelligent devices. WiSA Certified components from any member brand can be combined to dramatically increase the enjoyment of movies and video, music, sports, gaming/esports, and more. WiSA also ensures robust, high definition, multi-channel, low latency audio while eliminating the complicated set-up of traditional audio systems

LG’s 2019 WiSA Ready TVs ensure low-latency, seamless speaker synchronization and hi-fidelity sound via a range of already available WiSA Certified intelligent speakers from global providers such as Klipsch, Bang & Olufsen, Axiim, and Enclave Audio. All WiSA Ready and WiSA Certified components work together seamlessly to deliver wireless, multi-channel audio capabilities and authentic concert-quality sound that dramatically increases the enjoyment of movies and video, music, sports, gaming/esports, and more. As a result, consumers can expect a reliable and flawless experience, but unlike traditional audio systems, set up is simple and takes just minutes, even for 5.1 speaker setups.

“Intelligent TVs are the centerpiece of today’s next generation home entertainment systems and audio is essential to the overall experience,” stated Tim Alessi, senior director, product marketing at LG Electronics. “With WiSA Ready displays, we recognize the tremendous benefits that consumers will enjoy in taking advantage of truly immersive, wireless sound that complements all kinds of big screen home entertainment from movies and video to games, esports, and more.”

The full range of Summit’s WiSA technology enables up to 8 channels of uncompressed 24-bit audio capable of supporting the latest audio decode formats, including Dolby ATMOS and DTS X for an immersive sound experience. Summit’s network performance reduces latency to a negligible 5ms that doesn’t vary with network loading, up to 20 times better than standard Bluetooth and WiFi technologies. Summit’s patent pending ADAPT algorithms for active detection, avoidance and prioritization technology more than doubles wireless network capacity, virtually eliminating interference from surrounding wireless networks to deliver a consumer experience that is best-in-class. With Summit’s WiSA technology, consumers enjoy great movies or gaming content knowing that the picture and sound will always be synchronized perfectly.

“LG is a brand synonymous with leadership, innovation and quality, and together we are championing the WiSA industry standard, which delivers wireless, immersive hi-fidelity sound capabilities with tremendous benefits to both manufacturers and consumers worldwide,” noted Brett Moyer, president and CEO of Summit Wireless Technologies. “WiSA Ready LG TVs are an integral part of our delivering next generation audio to a mass, global market with seamless compatibilities and ease of setup.”

CES 2019 will run January 8-11, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show is the world’s largest and most influential technology event, featuring 4,500 exhibitors across 2.75 million net square feet of exhibit space. The hottest trends of CES 2019 include 5G connectivity, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, mobility, smart home, smart cities, sports tech, machine learning and more.
