standard Wi-Fi network.

of streaming service options that can be implemented by
the company's OEM partners for use within their
proprietary DTS Play-Fi apps. Internet radio gives
users access to news, sports, music and talk radio
programming, as well as podcasts from Internet radio
stations around the globe. Phorus, a subsidiary of DTS
and the makers of the PS1 tablet top speaker system and
PR1 receiver, is the first DTS Play-Fi-enabled product
provider to offer Internet radio as a feature within
its version of the DTS Play-Fi app.
Using DTS Play-Fi technology, both the new Windows PC
driver and the DTS Play-Fi app for Android, users can
stream Hi-Fi audio directly over standard Wi-Fi
networks, with bit-for-bit accuracy, to DTS Play-Fi
connected speakers and receivers throughout the home.
With the DTS Play-Fi Windows driver, users can stream
audio from almost any music source from the computer,
including subscription music services, local files,
network drives, cloud services, Internet radio, or
websites, directly to any DTS Play-Fi enabled speaker
system. It also gives users full control of the home
speaker network?allowing users to set up, link, and
stream audio to one speaker system or multiple speaker
systems throughout the home at once.
The DTS Play-Fi applet for Windows PCs will be
available for users to download in Q1 2013.
