UK loudspeaker company PMC has announced that it is joining The Cinema Designer’s (TCD) manufacturer database. PMC claims that it is an ‘obvious fit’ with TCD’s Award-winning home theatre design software. From now on, integrators using TCD will be able to design everything from small media rooms, right up to ‘high-render channel count’ immersive audio home theatres using PMC’s extensive range of loudspeakers.
PMC’s speakers are the tools of choice for many recording studios, movie production companies, Oscar-winning film scoring studios, composers, musicians and engineers. TCD’s manufacturer database will now incorporate every product in PMC’s portfolio, and include HiFi products such as the Gold, Twenty5 and slim-line Wafer series; full range floor-standing loudspeakers and subwoofers such as Fact and SE; in-wall and on-wall CI loudspeakers and professional large-scale reference studio monitors such as the MB3, BB6 and QB1-XBD-A systems.
“By including all our products in TCD we are ensuring that designers can choose and source the correct loudspeaker for every application – from smaller media-type cinema rooms right through to large-scale, bespoke high-end, highest fidelity monitoring systems for cinema,” says Ian Sutton, UK Divisional Director.
Built by home theatre designers, for home theatre designers, TCD allows home cinema professionals to design any dedicated cinema or media room in a short time using products from the ‘best’ manufacturers in the residential AV industry. TCD creates peer-reviewed standard cinema designs and documentation, which should allow users to produce ‘technically impeccable’ dedicated theatre 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.
Using TCD should allow integrators to design technically perfect immersive audio PMC home theaters in a matter of minutes, 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.
“PMC has an amazing pedigree in creating the leading studio monitors; the scale of their portfolio is one of the most impressive of any brand,” says TCD Inventor, Guy Singleton. “PMC’s loudspeakers are remarkably capable and sonically-driven products, which lend themselves particularly well to TCD’s Media Room and Media Room Pro subscription options. We are really proud to include these products in our database, and to make it possible for our thousands of users all over the world to have the ability to design media rooms and cinemas using PMC.”
