LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
CES (Booth #9839) — DTS,
Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and
audio enhancement technologies, today announced it has expanded its
relationship with vivo, a premium Chinese smartphone brand, to support
the Play-Fi™ platform on the vivo mobile product line. With this
announcement, consumers will be able to download the Play-Fi app from
the vivo store, and instantly unlock Play-Fi functionality, allowing
them to enjoy music stored on, or streaming to, their vivo products on
any Play-Fi connected audio system(s) within their home.
“Building upon the recent news that we are integrating DTS Headphone:X™
into our product line, we are excited to further expand our relationship
with DTS to offer our customers access to Play-Fi,” said Mr. Feng Lei,
CMO of vivo. “By enabling Play-Fi on our products, consumers will be
able to seamlessly enjoy their music from their own collections, or
music streaming from popular music services, to any connected wireless
audio system or speaker, without any loss in audio quality. Consumers
are sure to enjoy the sense of truly being linked to their music that
Play-Fi is an advanced audio platform capable of streaming
lossless, high-quality audio to multiple rooms simultaneously using a
standard home Wi-Fi network. Unlike single speaker wireless solutions,
which only allow users to stream directly to one speaker from their
mobile devices, 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.
“Connected devices shouldn't just keep us connected to the Internet and
our social networks, they should be designed to connect with us,” said
Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief operating officer, DTS.
“It was with this philosophy in mind that we developed Play-Fi, an
advanced open platform that enables devices to connect people to their
music in a whole new way. With Play-Fi, you have complete control of
your music, whether it be stored on your device, your home network, or
streaming from one of several popular streaming music service providers
that support the Play-Fi technology, and with the tap of a finger can
enjoy it out loud, how it was meant to be heard, on one or more wireless
speaker systems connected to your home Wi-Fi network, eliminating the
need to dock your device or plug in any wires.”
