New companion app for iOS and Android allows DTS Play-Fi users to
enjoy shared content via standard headphones while maintaining
CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
a global leader in high-definition audio solutions and a wholly owned
subsidiary of Xperi
Corporation (Nasdaq: XPER) ("Xperi"), is pleased to announce the new
DTS® Play-Fi® Headphones app, now available on iOS
and coming to Android in early July, as a companion app to select DTS
Play-Fi audio products. The free app enables users to stream content
over Wi-Fi that is playing on any DTS Play-Fi-supported product to any
pair of headphones connected to a phone or tablet* for a private
listening experience. With DTS Play-Fi's A/V synchronization technology,
audio stays in line with the video content being played on the TV. Users
enjoy the benefits of full Wi-Fi range within their home, eliminating
the in-room limitations of Bluetooth solutions.
The DTS Play-Fi Headphones app will stream audio from any of the
compatible inputs (HDMI, optical, etc.) on the compatible products
listed below. Up to four listeners can join the audio streaming session
for a private listening party without disturbing others around them.
When used in conjunction with DTS Play-Fi's new whole-home TV audio
streaming feature, the app allows a user to join an ongoing TV audio
multiroom session and enjoy it at a different volume for themselves,
while still being part of the group.
"We are excited to announce the new DTS Play-Fi Headphones app, bringing
a private listening experience to the whole-home audio ecosystem," said
Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi, at Xperi. "Whether it's
enjoying shared content at a higher volume, or multiple users enjoying
the same content through individual headphones so they won't disturb
others, the DTS Play-Fi Headphones app delivers high-quality audio and
performance over Wi-Fi."
The DTS Play-Fi Headphones app can stream audio from the following DTS
Play-Fi-enabled products, with more launching throughout the year:
Definitive Technology W Studio Micro sound bar
Klipsch Gate receiver, PowerGate amplifier, RSB-8 sound bar, RSB-14
