HTC today announced a certification program dubbed as HTC Connect, which is designed to offer consumer electronics manufacturers the opportunity to create an improved sound and visual standard for seamless connectivity between HTC devices and consumer electronics.
HTC Connect certification introduces new connectivity standards for partners and gives consumers using an HTC Connect-certified device a new level of convenience through seamless integration with their other compatible consumer electronics.
The company even announced that Pioneer Electronics is the first partner to bring HTC Connect- certified devices to market. For consumers, HTC Connect will mean high-quality, wireless audio and video sent through their HTC smartphones to their compatible in-home and in-car electronics.
“The vision for HTC Connect is to allow our customers to easily stream their favorite high-quality video and audio from their smartphone into their home or car. This new initiative will build upon HTC’s innovation in smartphones with leading consumer electronics brands,” said Kouji Kodera, chief product officer, HTC Corporation.
“We’re also excited to announce Pioneer Electronics, a leader in the audio and video industry, as our first partner to demonstrate the initial HTC Connect-certified audio experience for consumers.”
