TAIPEI CITY, TAIWAN, June 28, 2018 – TUNAI Creative was established in 2014, and since that time, the company has successfully launched innovative audio products such as the FIREFLY for a crisp music experience and the DRUM enhanced audiophile earphone. Now, the company announced the new product, WAND, the world’s smallest and most compelling Bluetooth Transmitter, officially launches a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter starting on June 27. WAND has been honored as one of the most outstanding designs by CES 2018 Innovation Awards as a way to enhance the audio entertainment.
The WAND is a never-before-seen world’s smallest Bluetooth transmitter offering the powerful audio experience with parallel streaming to up to 2 devices. WAND coordinates audio signals from analog, optical, and USB based devices. It supports Bluetooth 4.2 input and three different codecs, aptX, aptX low latency, and SBC. By supporting aptX Low Latency, WAND can offer a lip-sync delay free audio experience when one or two headsets are connected and with a 164 ft/50 meter open air operating range, one of the longest on the market. (Note: The receiving device also must support aptX low latency technology to enable zero lip-sync delay.)
Measuring at just 2.95 inches tall, the WAND has a visual appearance of a cubic stick and is made to deliver breathtaking streaming from television sets, computers, and gaming consoles directly to wireless headphones. “It also works with long-range devices empowering you with freedom to float freely, without compromising on sound quality,” said Eric Chang, Chief Technologist at TUNAI Creative.
The WAND is designed for sports fans, movie, TV lovers, and console gamers. The WAND’s capabilities will accommodate users who want to leverage this wireless audio hub for all of their home entertainment needs. It might be an early morning football game at 3 am, a late-night gaming session or a movie marathon. You no longer need to worry about keeping the volume down and won’t miss any of the action. WAND provides hassle-free audio streaming.
