Gibson Guitar Corporation and speaker manufacturer Onkyo Corporation have become members of the Wireless Speaker and Audio Association. The innovative industry group, better known as WiSA, is dedicated to bringing reliable, high-performance, interoperable, wireless surround sound audio products to the home theater market.
“We have a rich history as pioneers in the guitar business and have extended our expertise with innovations in the home theater category as well as the professional A/V market," said Henry Juszkiewicz, chairman and chief executive officer of Gibson Guitar Corporation. "Delivering high definition wireless audio solutions is a strategic priority for Gibson, and joining the WiSA Association makes perfect sense because it is the only multi-channel wireless technology out there that is capable of delivering the HD audio experience that the broad market is demanding."
Munenori Otsuki, president and chief executive officer of Onkyo Corporation, echoed Mr. Juszkiewicz’s sentiments. "Delivering high quality wireless audio speakers, A/V equipment, and other CE products which can interoperate with each other is a high priority for us and our customers,” he said. “We look forward to working with the WiSA Association to deliver game-changing products that will finally give the consumer the high-definition wireless audio experience they want for their home theater.”
