APT has a new licensing deal with a manufacturer of Bluetooth products.

Wearnes Tech Solutions makes headsets, USB adaptors and Bluetooth AV devices; it will license apt-X coding technology as part of a Bluetooth module it sells to manufacturers of consumer electronics, communications and computing equipment.

APT said WTS modules are used in portable car-kits, Apple iPod accessories, headsets for mobile phones and MP3 players, and stereo audio transmitters and receivers.

A company official at APT said current offerings in Bluetooth stereo headsets “fall way short of consumer expectations for high-quality audio, and there have also been issues with delays causing lip-sync issues,” problems that will be addressed by use of the apt-X algorithm.
