DTS’ Play-Fi “Hi-Fi over Wi-Fi” Technology Launches in China with QQ Music
Mobile Asia Expo 2013
SHANGHAI -- June 27, 2013
At the Mobile Asia Expo in Shanghai, DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in
high-definition audio solutions and audio post processing technologies, today
announced the expansion of its groundbreaking Play-Fi™ wireless platform into
China. In conjunction with the launch into this market, QQ Music, China's
leading authorized digital music service provider, is now seamlessly
integrated into the Play-Fi app. Play-Fi enables users to stream lossless,
high-definition audio from their smartphones, tablets and PCs directly to
equipped speakers throughout the home using a standard Wi-Fi network.
QQ Music is directly integrated into the free Play-Fi app, which is now
available for download at Google Play or the Amazon App store. That means that
QQ Music subscribers can access their existing accounts, or create a new one,
to stream their favorite music to one or more Play-Fi enabled-speakers
anywhere in their home. The app has also been localized with Chinese language
support and features all of the popular QQ Music features.
“The multi-room speaker category in China is still in its infancy, but has
tremendous growth potential. By integrating QQ Music, the premiere music
service in China, Play-Fi customers now have an unprecedented selection of
high quality music to enjoy in their home,” said Brian Towne, executive vice
president and chief operating officer, DTS. “In addition, it positions our
Play-Fi technology as an ideal platform for manufacturers looking to offer a
multi-room speaker solution to the more than 225 million Android users in
The line of Play-Fi-equipped audio products currently shipping in China
includes the Phorus PS1 Speaker and the Wren V5PF Speaker, as well as the
Phorus PR1 Receiver, which allows users to stream music through their existing
home audio system. With Play-Fi, users have full control of the home speaker
network—allowing them to set up, link, and stream audio to one or multiple
speakers over standard Wi-Fi, an industry first. Users in China can use the
Play-Fiapp to access locally stored music, DLNA servers, and Internet radio
andpodcasts fromaround the world. Play-Fi is available today for Android
devices, and forthcoming availability for Windows PCs was announced earlier
Several Play-Fi-equipped audio products can be found through various
distributors in China, as well as other markets in Asia. Play-Fi is also
available as a licensed platform from DTS, presenting a major opportunity for
other mobile and home entertainment hardware manufacturers to offer their
customers a whole home streaming audio experience.
