In September and October, Cedia hosted a European roadshow for TCD software in Milan, Nice, and Madrid, designed to give technology integrators the opportunity to learn more about the capabilities and benefits of the software in their own local language.
TCD allows integrators to enter room dimensions and materials, equipment choices, and placement, producing a client-ready 30+ page cinema design proposal. Users are guided through the design process and the resulting design is complete in minutes, not hours or days.
“From the sightlines to the seating and screen types to the projector selection and proper Dolby Atmos speaker placement, the documentation includes everything – commented LED Systems LLC Chief Technologist, Lewis Franke -. TCD paid off for me immediately during the first project I used it. I delivered a more expensive proposal than the other bids, because the software helped me show the client the necessary changes and accommodations others were leaving out”,
The award-winning software has released a host of valuable upgrades:
- the documentation report can now be generated in Spanish;
- soundbar products can now be specified within the tool;
- a new Project Progress feature is available.
The Project Progress feature allows users to demonstrate which stage the project is in. Project managers will find it beneficial for validating to customers the phase the project has reached, including sales agreed, trim out, first fix, and second fix.
The new TCD developments follow several others recently announced, including immersive virtual reality render capabilities and the introduction of Samsung‘s The Wall, a consumer modular MicroLED 146-inch display. “The Wall” will be included in the software’s Luxury Living room category that is accessible only to TCD users at the Cinema Room Pro account level. TCD will simplify the design process and guide the integrator through the entire process, specifying ideal equipment placement whilst providing all the dealer needs to know in terms of installing The Wall.
K-Array promotes TCD
K-Array recently signed up to TCD and at its Global Distributors conference, invited Steve Carter, CEDIA Business Development Manager, EMEA, to present the features and benefits of the software to attendees.
“As a manufacturer of loudspeakers, we are used to design software – said Alberto Gaetti of K-Array -. Loudspeakers by themselves have amazing performance but one always listens to the room, not only to the source. The TCD software gives an accurate prediction of the sound system that is very close to the actual experience. TCD is very useful for dealers and architects to track the design process, taking advantage of revisions and making the design a collaborative process for the final project”.
