EDMONTON, AB, CANADA, Jan. 2, 2019 – Eleven Engineering, Inc. (www.elevenengineering.com), a market leader in semiconductor products for wireless audio for home theatre, multi-room, outdoor, portable, professional, 12 Volt (car, truck, motorcycle, power sports, marine) and gaming applications, is proud to announce that it will feature numerous live SKAA® Wireless Audio demos during its annual Product Showcase, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from Jan. 8-11, 2019 at The Mirage Hotel & Casino (suite TBD). Eleven Engineering will have its full complement of sales, marketing, and engineering teams present during the show to discuss its products and technologies.

During the event, Eleven Engineering will demonstrate SKAA’s enhanced ability to simultaneously address the world’s five biggest wireless audio markets:

1. whole house (multiroom audio)

2. home theater (TV)

3. portable/mobile

4. automotive/marine/powersports

5. pro audio/musical instrument.

“We’ve been passionately evangelizing that audio is important enough to have its own wireless standard,” said John Sobota, Eleven Engineering CEO. “We’re also committed to making that standard work seamlessly across all of the key markets. In 2018, we took a close look at how we could make SKAA truly great in three markets for which our licensees may not have previously considered SKAA: Home Theatre, Whole House, and Pro applications. I’m really looking forward to meeting with our licensees and prospective licensees in Las Vegas and demonstrating to them the enhancements we’ve innovated. They’re subtly powerful and further fortify the key attributes which have always made SKAA stand out…the best ease-of-use and best flexibility in the category.”

Eleven Engineering will also feature its full line of SKAA transmitters, receivers, and accessories during the showcase.

“WiFi does a lot of things well, including allowing computers, smart phones, and other devices to connect to the cloud”, explained Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering executive vice president, sales & marketing. “However, delivering audio in real time and with a consistent and predictable latency is something it does not do well at all. Furthermore, since WiFi audio requires a router, it is not a solution which works well across multiple real-life applications, from home to portable. Come see us at our suite where we identify the many drawbacks of WiFi audio and demonstrate how SKAA performs these tasks effortlessly and with greater precision.”

Whitehead continued, “SKAA is highly flexible as it is also compatible with any brand, any product, anytime, anywhere, with rock solid reliability, great range, and CD-quality sound. SKAA is ridiculously easy to use…all compatible products are ready to play right out of the box with no pairing required.”

SKAA is the new wireless HiFi audio standard developed by Eleven Engineering, Inc. SKAA transmitters work with iOS & Android mobile devices, Mac & Windows computers, televisions, and just about any product with a line output or a headphone jack. SKAA is also available as a built-in technology not requiring an external transmitter in purpose-designed partner products, which are featured at SKAA.com. In environments laden with heavy Wi-Fi and Bluetooth traffic, SKAA navigates through these hostile environments with best-in-class reliability. SKAA also allows for uninterrupted audio signals which are delivered with the highest sound quality to all speakers without the latency that is inherent in other wireless solutions.
