Lights…Camera…Custom! CEDIA to Get National TV Opportunity
CEDIA will be featured in an upcoming episode of the TV series Designing Spaces, which “inspires viewers to add to their home in order to make it more enjoyable.”
The show is scheduled for telecast nationally on May 25 and May 27 on TLC and WE, “with additional coverage on cable affiliates for ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PAX and UPN,” said CEDIA. The episode will first air at 7:00 a.m. PDT/EDT on May 25. The 30-minute program that features CEDIA will be rerun at least 20 times, with the potential for reaching more than 80 million households, said CEDIA.
“CEDIA’s communications efforts are hitting their mark and increasing awareness of CEDIA among key referral audiences and the general public,” said CEDIA Executive Director Don Gilpin. “This is yet another example of how CEDIA is bringing more and more value to CEDIA Certification by making it a recognized ‘seal of approval.’”
The segment highlights the expertise of CEDIA-certified electronic systems contractors and the value of working with CEDIA members for professionally designed and installed home electronics systems, said the association.
An actual system will be installed during the show; doing the honors will be CEDIA member Jeff Hoover. The installation includes whole-house integration with everything from a home theater to outdoor lighting, said CEDIA.
