Following a special collaboration with The CEDIA Designer (TCD) software in 2018, Meridian Audio’s free and complimentary Design and Specification Service (D&SS), features a new host of valuable upgrades to give Meridian dealers even more from the cinema design tool.

All new TCD features are now live on the Meridian version of TCD through its Design and Specification Service, which include the following additions:  

·     Spanish language, EN English and US English PDF documentation

·     Luxury living room designs with large format micro LED panels

·     Custom front wide channel selection for high channel count designs

·     Front L/C/R soundbar support

·     Bass frequency seating guides

·     Project progress

 “These are exciting updates, it’s great to see the ongoing progression and constant commitment the TCD has for this industry,” says Barry Sheldrick, Director of Sales at Meridian. “All of our products are fully integrated into this tool, providing our dealers with access to a Meridian-supported version of the TCD that includes all valuable upgrades. These new implementations mean we can now provide additional features as part of our complimentary Design and Specification Service that will continue to improve and assist future projects. We hope these changes provide an even greater level of support for our dealers.”

The new TCD developments follow several others recently announced, including immersive virtual reality render capabilities and the introduction of Samsung’s The Wall, a MicroLED 146-inch display. Both features are available to TCD and D&SS users at the Cinema Room Pro tier.

To begin the process, integrators simply need to contact Meridian for their personal login details, which will provide complimentary access to the exclusive Meridian TCD portal. 

In a few minutes, this cloud-based design tool will produce a technically perfect home cinema or media room design with full documentation, a scale rendering of the finished theatre, and a 3D CAD model. Meridian TCD calculates in minutes what would typically take an experienced cinema designer several weeks, saving crucial design time on projects.

Each CEDIA-approved Design and Specification Service pack features precise room layout and speaker positioning diagrams, detailed wiring diagrams, and comprehensive product information. In addition, it will show how Meridian components can interface with existing audio and video distribution systems as well as third party control systems.

Integrators also have the option of using Meridian’s complimentary Design and Specification Service by providing a plan of the room, house, or room dimensions, and emailing it to Meridian will provide co-branded drawings of the proposed system layout and an associated wiring diagram as pdf files at no cost.
