DTS Play-Fi — Hi-Fi over Wi-Fi The company’s Play-Fi solution targets the booming wireless audio space. Its wireless streaming technology allows Wi-Fi enabled sources, such as PCs, smartphones, and tablets, to stream uncompressed audio to Play-Fi enabled products, such as speakers, soundbars, TVs, and home theater systems. DTS Play-Fi enables the synchronized streaming of music to multiple speakers directly from a smartphone, tablet, PC or other Play-Fi enabled device over a standard Wi-Fi network to anywhere the Wi-Fi reaches. This solution allows the consumer to play music uninterrupted without the various alerts that plague Bluetooth audio playback, while still being able to use the mobile device for calls, text messages, Internet, etc. In addition, Play-Fi provides multi-room, multi-zone audio synchronization, again utilizing standard Wi-Fi capabilities that are built into most mobile devices and any home with Wi-Fi. The Play-Fi app is available for mobile devices that use the Android, Kindle Fire or iOS operating systems and is also available for the Windows PC platform. Play-Fi enabled speakers, soundbars and AVRs are available online and at retailers through various brands, including Definitive Technology, Martin Logan, Paradigm, Phorus and Wren, with products coming in 2016 from Arcam, Anthem, Klipsch, McIntosh and Rotel. Most importantly, all Play-Fi products from all brands are interoperable offering consumers more choices than competing platforms. The technology enables audio streaming from the music services, including Spotify, Amazon Prime Music, iHeart Radio, Pandora, Rhapsody, SiriusXM and Tidal, as well as various Internet radio stations and listeners' personal music libraries on any supported product. Combined, Headphone:X and Play-Fi are designed to make a compelling use case for the modern connected lifestyle.
