SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- November 05, 2012

The Wireless Speaker and Audio (WiSA™) Association, today announced the
creation of a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and associated Special
Interest Groups (SIGs) to advance the development of wireless audio solutions
for home theater, consumer electronics and professional A/V markets.
Participation in both groups is open to members of the WiSA Association and
the activities pursued by each group may influence the WiSA Compliance Test
Specification (CTS) as well as the technology roadmap.

The Technical Advisory Committee will work with other standards bodies such as
the IEEE, AES, HDMI^®, MHL^® to advance wireless HD audio in their respective
specifications. Special Interest Groups will address various challenges facing
the audio industry today, such as DTV applications, 802.1 A/V bridging,
interoperability with other radio technologies, and many other topics. The
focus of the first two Special Interest Groups is on addressing DTV
connectivity and multi-room wireless HD audio technology.

“We are at a pivotal point in time for providing leadership and new direction
for the wireless speaker and audio industry and we welcome the participation
of Technical Advisory Committee and Special Interest Groups members in
charting the course for wireless HD audio in the home theater,” said Jim
Venable, president of the WiSA Association. “The WiSA Association has gained
significant momentum with the recent release of the industry’s first
Compliance Test Specification for interoperability and I expect our engagement
with the Technical Advisory Committee and Special Interest Groups to be
equally ground-breaking in driving additional areas of application for
high-performance wireless audio.”

The WiSA Association is dedicated to the delivery of high-definition audio
content in the home theater environment. Opportunities to participate in the
Association exist for Members and Associate Members. Companies and
organizations interested in joining a SIG are welcome to contact the
Association. The application to join and information about membership fees can
