The What: BrightSign has launched BrightSign AU335, an affordable audio player that supports the latest sound technologies. The player’s ARC and eARC support enables the AU335 to distribute up to three zones of audio to soundbars and AV receivers that offer high-bandwidth, 24-bit sound, including Dolby Atmos.
The What Else: Consumer audio products are particularly challenging to display in-store. Retailers need the ability to display soundbars, wireless Bluetooth speakers, and other audio devices in a way that customers can intuitively test and compare products side-by-side. Achieving this level of approachable simplicity requires a great deal of technical sophistication behind the scenes, and BrightSign’s new AU335 digital audio player is designed to do just that, according to the company.
The AU335 supports multi-zone audio, with the ability to integrate interactivity via physical buttons, proximity sensors, and more via USB, GPIO, or Ethernet connectivity.
The BrightSign AU335 will be available in mid-September on BrightSign’s online store (opens in new tab), and via select channel partners.
