Summit
Wireless Technologies, Inc.
(NASDAQ:WISA), the leading provider of
immersive, hi-fidelity, wireless sound technology for intelligent
devices and home entertainment systems, and a founding member of WiSA,
the Wireless Speaker and Audio Association, today announced the 2019
global launch of WiSA Certified™ products from nine leading wireless
speaker manufacturers across North America, Europe and Asia. This
multi-tiered deployment, slated for the first quarter of 2019, will
coincide with the worldwide roll out of WiSA Ready™ TVs from LG
Electronics' 2019 lineup of OLED and flagship UHD displays.

The WiSA Ready standard has experienced rapid adoption and includes not
only the 2019 lineup of LG TVs, but Xbox One gaming systems as well as
PCs running Windows 10. Products bearing the WiSA Ready logo, combined
with a WiSA USB Transmitter and WiSA Certified speakers enable the most
innovative, wireless sound experience available for movies, music and
games.* Summit estimates that there will be up to 60 million units of
WiSA Ready platforms in the market in 2019, providing for a total
available market of more than 300 million WiSA enabled speakers.

Summit's WiSA Certified customers include industry leaders Harman
International, Klipsch, Bang & Olufsen, Axiim, Enclave Audio, EC Living,
Platin, Golden Ear, and System Audio.** These customers have embraced
Summit's technology to implement WiSA standards that ensure
interoperability, ease of set up by consumers, and multichannel
hi-definition, concert-quality sound for the next generation home
entertainment experience. Beginning in the first quarter 2019, WiSA will
kick off an international channel marketing program to support the
entire spectrum of WiSA Certified speakers launching next year.

"As the world's top CE brands and manufacturers rapidly embrace Summit's
WiSA technology, we move closer to broadly delivering the most
innovative, wireless sound solutions available to greatly enhance the
consumer experience," noted Brett Moyer, president and CEO of Summit
Wireless Technologies. "With an estimated 60 million WiSA Ready units in
market by the end of next year, a new standard of quality, compatibility
and superiority has been set."

WiSA Certified intelligent speakers, with the addition of a WiSA USB
Transmitter, provide seamless synchronization with WiSA Ready devices
such as smart TVs and gaming systems like Xbox to enable low-latency and
hi-fidelity sound. All WiSA Ready and WiSA Certified components work
together flawlessly to deliver wireless, multi-channel audio
capabilities and authentic picture perfect sound that dramatically
increases the enjoyment of movies and video, music, sports,
gaming/esports, and more.

The full range of Summit's WiSA technology enables up to eight channels
of uncompressed 24-bit audio capable of supporting the latest audio
decode formats, including Dolby ATMOS and DTS X for an immersive sound
experience. Summit's network performance reduces latency to a negligible
5ms that doesn't vary with network loading, up to 20 times better than
standard Bluetooth and WiFi technologies. Summit's patent pending ADAPT
algorithms for active detection, avoidance and prioritization technology
more than doubles wireless network capacity, virtually eliminating
interference from surrounding wireless networks to deliver a consumer
experience that is best-in-class.

"The WiSA Association is extremely excited to reach this landmark and
see leading brands adopting WiSA Ready Certification," stated Tony
Ostrom, president of the WiSA Association. "A significant number of TVs,
gaming PCs and console systems will now be able to simply connect to a
WiSA Certified Transmitter and broadcast high-def, multi-channel audio
allowing users to easily connect to a wide variety of speakers solutions
from leading brands a create immersive audio systems with ease. The
incredible amount of highly produced, multi-channel audio content coming
directly into our homes today demands better audio and we are thrilled
to help provide solutions that allow it to be properly enjoyed."
