Strong Growth Continues for WiSA in Q1
The Wireless Speaker and Audio (WiSA) Association, founded by Summit Wireless Technologies, announced a strong first quarter from a membership growth standpoint, which follows up on another strong year for the organization.
In 2018, WiSA added 16 new member brands into the mix, which was considered a major achievement—as it should be. However, in just the first three months of 2019, WiSA said it has added another 18 new member brands. As a result, the association has seen its membership numbers balloon 38 percent since CES 2019, and more than 83 percent since this time last year.
“It’s thrilling to see WiSA and its members move the needle while at the forefront of a global movement in support of wireless multichannel audio,” Tony Ostrom, president of WiSA, said in a statement. “Our rapidly growing ecosystem is now packed with companies that represent the best in audio, electronics and manufacturing, which will enable our customers to bring millions of WiSA Ready platforms to market in 2019.”
