WiSA® LLC, the Wireless Speaker and Audio Association, comprised of over 60 leading consumer electronics brands and founded by Summit Wireless Technologies (NASDAQ: WISA), today announced it has certified the Q UHD Media Center created by Axiim.
The Q UHD sets a very high standard for wireless audio video receivers (AVRs) with its advanced connectivity, wireless connection to all WiSA Certified™ speakers and premium tuning and control features that tailor the listening experience through a beautifully designed user interface. The Q expands on Axiim’s WiSA Certified wireless audio transmitter collection by joining the Axiim LINK transmitter which is designed for use with WiSA Ready TVs, PCs and gaming systems.
“We are excited the innovative Q UHD from Axiim achieved WiSA Certification,” said Tony Ostrom, president of WiSA. “Axiim has been a leading WiSA player in the wireless audio category, and the Q sets a very high standard for wireless AVRs with its sophisticated feature set, user friendliness, and elegant style.”
“We strongly believe in the growing wireless home audio category and wanted to fill the need for an elite wireless AVR solution,” said James Hammer, CEO of Axiim. “The Q UHD is designed to deliver a premium user experience during system set-up, while tuning, and during daily use. WiSA technology enables uncompromised, immersive wireless sound for the Q UHD and numerous other Axiim products.”
The Q’s intuitive user interface and mobile app create an easy set-up and simple control of systems with up to 7.1 channels of audio support. This efficient set-up capability combined with wireless speaker connectivity eliminate the common barriers to entry for surround sound systems in the home. The Q delivers an uncompromised 24bit/96kHz HD wireless audio connection to any WiSA Certified speakers (Klipsch, Bang and Olufsen, others) including all Axiim loudspeaker products. The Q mobile app for iOS and Android offers complete control from anywhere the user’s home WiFi is available. Furthermore, the app and onscreen display provide access to the latest HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 compliant Blu-ray players, game consoles, and streaming devices connected to any of Q’s available inputs. The Axiim Q UHD is also the first WiSA Certified wireless AVR featuring 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range) video support on six HDMI inputs. The 4K video resolution offers four times more color pixels than standard 1080p video, and combined with HDR video content, delivers superior contrast and more vivid video.
“We strongly believe in the growing wireless home audio category and wanted to fill the need for an elite wireless AVR solution,” said James Hammer, CEO of Axiim. “The Q UHD is designed to deliver a premium user experience during system set-up, while tuning and throughout daily use.”
