Following on from our report in March that Audio Control had joined The Cinema Designer, Paradigm and Anthem have just announced that both brands’ range of home theater products are now also available within the CEDIA Award-winning, global cloud-based design software online database. Using TCD, integrators are able to design technically accurate home theaters and media rooms using Paradigm and Anthem’s product lines, and will be able to predict results based on industry standards.
Paradigm’s product range is now live within the software, so integrators and dealers can quickly design a multichannel home theater system using Paradigm’s custom install, immersive audio in-ceiling or in-wall loudspeakers and subwoofers, and it is claimed that TCD will cater for all levels of theater design.
Anthem’s product offerings have also been updated within the online design software to reflect the latest product releases, including the brand’s range of immersive audio AV processors and AV receivers, integrated amplifiers, power amplifiers and preamplifiers.
Using TCD will allow integrators to design technically perfect immersive audio home theaters ‘in a matter of minutes,’ claims Paradigm and Anthem, while also eliminating guesswork when it comes to placing all the required loudspeakers accurately in a room in a way that is relative to the listening area.
“Paradigm and Anthem products are high performance tools that enable specialty AV professionals to deliver amazing experiences for their clients—of course, the better the home theater speakers and electronics, the greater the potential for an exceptional experience. However, that potential can only be fully realized when products are properly positioned, set up, and performance optimized. The Cinema Designer software is a great tool to help our dealers achieve that goal,” says Keith Dowd, Paradigm & Anthem, Director of US Sales.
Built by home theater designers for home theater designers, TCD allows home cinema professionals to design any dedicated cinema or media room in minutes using products from the best manufacturers the residential theater industry has to offer. TCD creates peer-reviewed standard cinema designs and documentation, allowing users to produce ‘technically impeccable’ dedicated theater and media room designs, support documents, aesthetic renders accurately reflecting the finished room, in addition to producing a 3D CAD drawing of any room in under 30 seconds.
“TCD is bolstered by the products that we have in the tool, and I know from experience as an integrator that Paradigm and Anthem are very widely used and are hugely popular within the CI community,” said TCD inventor, Guy Singleton. “By updating Anthem’s newest products in the software and by introducing the Paradigm range, we are confident that we are continuing to bring good brands into the fold for the benefit of our users worldwide. From reference theatres to small media rooms, Anthem and Paradigm cater for all levels of home cinema installs, and we are so pleased to have them join the TCD family.”
