    All the gushing about The CEDIA Designer (TCD) home-theater design software is genuine for me. I'm doubly sold on TCD — not just as a remarkable design tool, but as one of the best marketing tools I've seen for selling (and upselling!) dedicated home theaters.

  • Keith Dowd

    Company: Paradigm and Anthem
    The better the home cinema 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 CEDIA Designer software is a great tool to help our dealers achieve that goal.

  • Peter Aylett

    This will go a very long way to raising the standard of private cinemas everywhere. Everything The CEDIA Designer does are things that previously we’d have to do longhand, that would take us a very, very long time. The nice thing about TCD is that, as you spec different products, you can see, almost in real time, exactly the different levels of performance that those different products will give you.


With so many advantages to using TCD cinema installers are flocking to use the tool.
