DTS Expands Play-Fi™ Platform Compatibility to Include iOS Devices

16:15 EDT Thursday, September 19, 2013

CALABASAS, Calif. (Business Wire) -- DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and audio post processing technologies, today announced that its Play-Fi™ wireless audio streaming solution is now compatible with hundreds of millions of iOS devices. With the addition of iOS compatibility, DTS Play-Fi is now the first licensable whole-home audio technology capable of streaming lossless, high-quality audio from both iOS and Android devices, as well as Windows PCs, to multiple rooms, from multiple users, simultaneously using standard Wi-Fi.

“With the resurgence of home audio happening today, we are seeing growing demand for a wireless audio solution that works across all platforms, ” said Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief operating officer, DTS. “Expanding Play-Fi's compatibility to now include the two leading mobile platforms provides DTS a much stronger platform to reach more consumers.”

“Households are increasingly using multiple devices, enjoying a broad range of music services, and demanding higher quality whole-home listening experiences. Bluetooth can't deliver that, single platform solutions can't deliver that, and closed architectures from single brands can't deliver that. DTS' Play-Fi technology can,” added Dannie Lau, lead architect for Play-Fi platform, DTS.

Unlike single speaker wireless solutions, which only allow users to stream directly to one speaker from their mobile devices, DTS' Play-Fi gives users full control of an entire network of speakers in the home. Users can set-up, link, and stream audio to one Play-Fi enabled speaker or multiple speakers throughout the home at once, perfectly synchronized and with no lag. Via the free DTS Play-Fi app for iOS, users can stream music from iTunes, access all of their existing playlists, and even stream popular music services such as Pandora.

Since Play-Fi is a true cross-platform solution, all Play-Fi enabled speakers, as well as future products from prospective Play-Fi partners, will be immediately compatible with the free iOS app, with no physical changes needed to the hardware.
