TCL and Ossia announce a partnership and collaboration on bringing several Cota Real Wireless products to market globally.
Redmond, Wash. January 9, 2024 - PRNewswire - Ossia Inc., the company behind FCC-approved Cota® Real Wireless Power™ — the patented technology that delivers power over-the-air, at a distance, and without the need for line-of-sight — today announced that it will be partnering and collaborating with TCL, which has spent over 40 years at the forefront of executing consumer technology, including for smart TVs, sound equipment, and home appliances, to develop Cota-enabled products.

“The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is always an exciting time when world leaders in technology get together to explore unique and ground-breaking collaborations. This year was no exception,” said Doug Stovall, CEO at Ossia. “We are proud to be collaborating with TCL, whose goals are in line with our own. As Ossia leads the world on what is possible with wireless power, TCL is pushing boundaries on what is possible with executing new and thoughtful technologies.”
Cota Real Wireless Power has approval to be marketed and sold in more than 60 countries worldwide and is the only technology of its kind that can be used without any distance limitations. It does not require line of sight, and delivers meaningful power to small devices even when they are in motion or there are obstructions.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to go-to-market with Cota-enabled products, and to be a catalyst for bringing a variety of useful wireless power products to market globally,” said Daniel Sun, CTO of TCL Industries. “Cota Real Wireless Power is unlike any other technology available today. We see great potential across a wide range of scenarios.”
