Brit built Musaic wireless streamers get AllJoyn powers
British tech start-up Musaic has today announced that its wireless music players are the first audio products to be AllJoyn Certified.
This exciting announcement means that Musaic’s MP5 and MP10 smart wireless multi-room speakers can discover, communicate, connect and interact with other AllJoyn Certified products. Musaic has also certified two further products which will be released in early 2016, their MPL Music Player and 2016 CES Innovation Award winning Musaic PRO-MZP Professional Installation Zone Player.
AllJoyn is an open source framework that makes it easy for devices and apps to discover and securely communicate with each other to allow customers to create customised experiences in their homes. AllJoyn is run by the AllSeen Alliance, a cross-industry consortium with nearly 200 member companies dedicated to enabling the interoperability of devices, services and apps that comprise the Internet of Things. Other companies to certify products include LG and Microsoft.
The AllJoyn Certified programme includes conformance testing and provides real world interoperability testing to help manufacturers ensure that their products work well with other certified products. Products that pass the certification earn the right to wear the AllJoyn Certified mark indicating AllJoyn interoperability to customers.
Musaic, led by CEO and Founder Matthew Bramble, is based in London. The Musaic wireless multi-room HiFi system is the first to offer both high-resolution audio playback and smart home features. Musaic has now been awarded a CES Innovation Award for two years running – in 2015 the start-up was named a CES Innovation Awards Honoree for their MP5 and MP10 Music Players and in 2016 for their PRO-MZP Professional Installation Zone Player.
Matthew Bramble said:
We are proud to announce AllJoyn certification of our wireless speaker range. The open, flexible nature of AllJoyn allows the capabilities of our products to grow and evolve whilst retaining the solid interoperability that is a keystone for Smart Home products. The AllSeen Alliance is doing fantastic things to advance interoperability industry-wide and unlock the true potential of IoT and we are very proud to be doing our small part.”
