Frontier SmartSDK Adds Support for Apple AirPlay 2

LONDON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 9, 2018 — Frontier Smart Technologies, a leading supplier of digital audio technologies, today announced it is adding support for AirPlay 2 to its SmartSDK. The company will be previewing its AirPlay 2 implementation at this year’s CES.

The Frontier SmartSDK is an advanced and flexible multi-ecosystem software solution, which supports the latest audio technologies, including AirPlay 2. Together with Frontier’s Minuet hardware platform, it enables third party brands and manufacturers to develop smart audio products quickly and cost-effectively.

AirPlay 2 introduces multi-room audio playback from iOS devices to enabled speakers with a simple tap or by asking Siri. AirPlay 2 also offers a superior user experience with latency reductions and responsiveness improvements; it also provides a higher level of buffering, which allows audio to keep playing if users temporarily move out of Wi-Fi range.

Anthony Sethill, CEO, Frontier Smart Technologies, said:

“We are excited to bring AirPlay 2 support to Frontier’s SmartSDK. For third party brands, this functionality will allow speakers to be seamlessly controlled from an iPhone or iPad using the Apple Music or Podcasts apps, by asking Siri, and in third party apps which support AirPlay. This will be an important differentiator in the increasingly competitive Smart Audio space.”
