Advancing the State of Wireless Audio Technology with SKAA
SKAA® is a wireless audio standard ensuring 100% compatibility with an expanding base of products from Atlantic and other companies. Proven by pro’s in live music performance, SKAA creates an independent Hi-Fi audio superhighway free from shortcomings of Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® such as complexity, range, lip-sync latency, inter-speaker time alignment, sound quality, dropouts and interference. SKAA can simultaneously multi-room cast high-fidelity 16 bit, 48 kHz audio to four additional SKAA products up to 150 feet away. Its 36 ms fixed low-latency audio, eliminates lip-sync issues in TV, movies or games and its inter-speaker time alignment with 0.04 ms precision delivers clear unified audio playback. SKAA’s robust signal transmission eliminates interference due to its patented Walking Frequency Diversity™ (WFD) channel hopping technology including error correction that so it works even in the noisiest tech laden homes.
Bluetooth, plus analog inputs ensure compatibility with any audio product plus small low-cost SKAA transmitters can turn any home, mobile, analog or digital device into a SKAA audio source, transmitting up to 4 other SKAA devices at once.
“As the inventor, manufacturer, and licensor of SKAA, Eleven Engineering is excited that Atlantic Technology is bringing to market such an extensive offering of products that demonstrate the strength and versatility of our wireless audio technology,” said Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering executive vice president, sales and marketing. “SKAA is purpose built for audio, delivering the best performance and convenience under all conditions. In addition, its low-latency and industry’s best time alignment creates new wireless applications and uses not possible with other wireless technology.”
