Krix Joins The CEDIA Designer Database

by User Not Found | Jun 24, 2019

Krix has reinforced its commitment to the dedicated home theatre sector by joining TCD's online database. Effective immediately, integrators using TCD can begin designing immersive audio home theatres and simpler media rooms – complete with full project documentation – using Krix’s range of dedicated home cinema loudspeakers and subwoofers, in minutes.

Included within TCD’s product database are Krix’s Series MX modular behind-screen speaker systems, the Series SX in-room, in-wall, on-wall speakers and subwoofers and the Series X range of speakers and subwoofers, designed to sit behind acoustically transparent screens in large cinema rooms.

The CEDIA Designer software allows home cinema professionals to design any dedicated cinema or media room in minutes using products from the best manufacturers the residential theatre industry has to offer. The CEDIA Designer calculates and produces in minutes what would take an experienced cinema designer weeks to complete, quickly specifying the precise location of all cinema and media room equipment, while eliminating equipment combinations that won't work. 

The software – which can be used by home cinema professionals anywhere in the world – creates peer-reviewed standard cinema designs and documentation, allowing users to produce technically correct dedicated cinema and media room designs, comprehensive support documents, renders (including immersive VR renders)accurately reflecting the finished room, in addition to producing a 3D CAD drawing of any room design in under 30 seconds. 

Crucially, using TCD allows integrators to confidently design technically perfect high render channel count home theatres in a matter of minutes using the Krix 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 accurate high render channel count immersive audio home theatres in such a short space of time.

“We’re proud to be partnering with The CEDIA Designer,” said Michael Cox, Marketing Manager at Krix. “The tool’s step-by-step approach simplifies the process of designing a high-end cinema room to specification. While the process is relatively quick and simple, it's obvious that a lot of hard work and industry experience have gone in behind the scenes - resulting in a tangible proposal that many clients will see value in.”

Integrators are required to create a TCD account to start designing Krix home cinemas and media rooms. Visit TCD’s website for more info on TCD’s subscription options and pricing and for tutorial videos and documentation output examples. CEDIA member dealers have free access to TCD’s Media Room software (a $650 value) as a benefit of membership, while members also receive substantial discounts on the other usage tiers.
