IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Libre Wireless Technologies, Inc. a leading embedded WiFi and wireless solutions provider, today announced its next generation of ground breaking mainstream WiFi based music streaming modules named the LS5B and LS6B. Libre’s new turnkey LibreSync WiFi module solutions are unique in that they bring full 24bit 96kHz/192kHz high resolution audio together with Libre’s powerful DDMS synchronized indoor/outdoor direct multinode streaming technology enabling extremely compelling entry level/mainstream wireless speaker and audio products.
Libre’s new LibreSync WiFi module solutions are unique as they deliver broad ecosystem support including Apple AirPlay and HomeKit, Android DLNA, Windows Play-To and full uPnP DMR/DMP/DMS support along with music streaming features like Spotify Connect, TuneIn, vTuner, Deezer, Tidal, QPlay and Melon plus USB, Docking/iAP, SD audio, Aux-in and Mic-in source options. The LS5B and LS6B Network Media Modules combine these features with Libre’s unique and powerful DDMS multi-room audio streaming technology that can connect and stream over 30 tightly synchronized speakers in one group or many independent groups – indoor or outdoor. Libre has added unique new “Easy MRA” features that enable simple end user control of their advanced multi-room audio products without the need for a control App. This delivers an all new level of simplicity and price that enables audio product companies to service entirely new mainstream market categories. Both the LS5B and LS6B offer fully integrated connectivity and media processing capability combined with advanced 802.11n WiFi. The WiFi is in a 1x1 configuration for LS5B and features antenna options for either a proprietary low cost on-module PCB antenna or a more flexible off-module antenna configuration. The LS6B offers advanced 2x2 MIMO configuration designed especially for use with Libre’s proprietary tuned high performance off-module antennas. The new modules are available at industry leading high-volume prices down to less than ten dollars ($10.00) for LS5B and less than thirteen dollars ($13.00) for LS6B. These prices include fully certified modules plus Libre’s extensive LibreSync media streaming SDK and accompanying Android and iOS reference Apps. The modules are world’s smallest size, lowest power and lowest price WiFi streaming solutions, yet provide all the high end audio quality and processing features for a leading audio streaming solution.
