DTS Expands PlayFi To iOS, Adds Core Brands As Licensee Calabasas, Calif. - DTS has licensed custom-install supplier Core Brands to offer products incorporating wireless Play-Fi multizone-audio technology, which has been upgraded to include iOS mobile devices as music sources and system controllers The technology, unveiled last year by DTS subsidiary Phorus, previously used only Android mobile devices as controllers and music sources. A Play-Fi app for iOS devices is available through Apple’s online store and is compatible with existing Play-Fi streaming devices already on the market. Play-Fi-enabled Core Brands’ products will be shown at the CEDIA Expo, Core Brands confirmed without releasing details. Play-Fi distributes music to multiple Play-Fi-equipped sound systems at a time.
