04/01/2022 06:04 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 4 -- Summit Wireless Technologies Inc, the leading developer of immersive spatial wireless sound technology, has partnered with Espressif Systems to develop the new 2.4GHz wireless audio module capable of delivering the reliability and quality commonly associated with more expensive 5GHz solutions.

Based on Espressif’s popular and industry-proven Wrover module platform, Summit’s transceiver module is production-ready and will be demonstrated at CES 2022, according to a statement.

Marketed as Discovery, the module is designed for fixed, low-latency wireless audio transmission and includes the features such as support for up to four independent 48kHz PCM audio channels; fixed source-to-speaker latency meeting video lip-sync requirements; and, low inter-channel delay between speakers ensuring a distortion free experience.

“Espressif is the perfect partner to help develop and launch the Discovery module,” said president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Summit Wireless Technologies Inc, Brett Moyer.

“We were looking for a partner whose module could meet our performance and reliability expectations for entry-level immersive audio systems and Espressif’s module met all the requirements.”

Meanwhile, Espressif Systems CEO and president, Swee-Ann Teo said: “We are excited to partner with leading wireless audio companies like Summit. This new entry-level module fulfills the need for a cost-effective solution for sound bars as well as thinner smart TVs that need to connect wirelessly to surrounding speakers.”

The Discovery module will be demonstrated at CES 2022, Jan 5 – 7, in Las Vegas at the Summit Wireless suite at the Flamingo Hotel.
