Meridian Audio Celebrates 40 Years of Excellence
The future is bright for Meridian Audio as it celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. As part of this momentous occasion, the company has announced exciting plans for the year ahead, with upcoming product launches, comprehensive partnerships and a number of prestigious events in its drive to provide the very best in hi-res audio solutions.
Throughout 2017, Meridian is introducing new, innovative products to help home technology integrators put their clients at the center of the listening experience. Meridian has recently launched the 218 zone controller and 258 power amplifier. Both products help to deliver a comprehensive home theater solution, regardless of existing audio and multi-zone media systems. Adding power, simplicity of integration, and performance, the 218 and 258 products use Meridian’s unique up-sampling technology to significantly improve audio quality with ease. Equally exciting new products are set to be unveiled during the company’s 40th year.
Meanwhile, Meridian is developing partnerships that give dealers access to a comprehensive range of premium home cinema solutions. Barco projectors deliver phenomenally high-quality video resolution. Distributed by Meridian, the Loki Dual Laser Projector, available in two resolutions - either 3840 x 2160 or 5120 x 2160 and with a native 2.37:1 aspect ratio, prevents no loss of light or black bars when enjoying home theater, ensuring a premium movie-watching experience. Meridian’s partnership with DT Screens and Cinema-ATS, complete the range with first class screen and acoustic products for home cinemas.
Meridian’s complimentary Design and Specification Service integrates all of its partners’ technology to make it quicker and easier for integrators to specify the right products for installation projects. Incorporation technology from Barco projectors, DT Screens and Cinema-ATS panels, the Design and Specification Service minimizes the challenge faced by integrators working on multiple projects.
Meridian has also recently launched its “Dealer School” training initiative. Hosted in its spectacular demo home theater at Meridian HQ in Huntingdon, the program focuses on giving dealers the full range of skills they need to design and create unbeatable home theaters. Integrators can now participate in newly dedicated training sessions on four key areas, as well as two existing courses.
To complete the celebrations, Meridian is organizing a 40th-anniversary event during CEDIA San Diego on the evening of Friday, September 8th, where a number of new products will be introduced to the market. This will be followed in London with a product launch event later in September, outlining plans for the coming year, and at ISE 2018 where additional new products will be unveiled to the European market as a continuation of the 40th-anniversary celebrations.
