Origin Acoustics Joins The CEDIA Designer Database

by User Not Found | Jan 21, 2019

Origin Acoustics, a leading manufacturer of architectural loudspeakers and custom installed audio strengthens its commitment to the dedicated home theater sector by joining global cloud-based design software, The CEDIA Designer (TCD) online database. Effective immediately, integrators using TCD can begin designing immersive audio home theatres and simpler media rooms – complete with full project documentation – using Origin Acoustics’ range of home cinema loudspeakers, subwoofers and amplifiers, in minutes.

Included within TCD’s substantial product database are Origin Acoustics’ recently debuted in-wall and on-wall Marquee Cinema Collection, the in-ceiling Director Collection, the Composer Collection (comprised of sleek in-wall, theater-style, LCR style and two-way bezel-less frame loudspeakers), the in-ceiling, in-wall and retrofit in-wall Architectural Subwoofer range, Powered Subwoofers and associated amplifiers.

Crucially, using TCD allows integrators to confidently design technically perfect high render channel count home theatres using the Origin Acoustics speakers and subwoofers available in the software’s database, eliminating the guesswork when it comes to placing all the required loudspeakers accurately in a room in a way that is relative to the listening area. Using TCD is the only way home technology professionals can accurately design technically perfect high render channel count immersive audio home theatres in such a short space of time. 

“As the only speaker manufacturer solely dedicated to architectural audio and with the imminent launch of our new range of Marquee dedicated theatre line, the time is right for us to join as TCD and Origin Acoustics are two young and successful companies,” said Jose Coelho, Director of International Business, Origin Acoustics.

“If I were an integrator, this is the tool I would use,” said Aaron Cattoir, Web Content Developer, Origin Acoustics. “TCD produces highly professional proposals, including acoustics and CAD drawings, within minutes! Unbelievable value.”

Integrators are required to create a TCD account to start designing Origin Acoustics home cinemas and media rooms.
