Meridian, Barco Enter Home Cinema Partnership

Barco Apollo

Meridian Audio has entered into a new partnership with Barco Residential to provide professional installers in the UK with access to both brands.

“We are keen to help our dealers provide authentic, premium quality and profitable home theatre experiences for their clients,” said Rayner Sheridan, Meridian’s Director of Marketing. “Our partnership with Barco Residential now allows professional installers to access excellent quality projection technology, alongside our own high-performance audio, all supported by Meridian’s complimentary Design and Specification Service. Together, Meridian and Barco Residential can now provide the three key ingredients for a successful home cinema or media room installation.”

As part of this agreement, installers will be able to access and specify Barco Residential’s Loki 4K DLP laser home cinema projector, which will be available later this year. The new brand partnership will complement Barco Residential’s existing distribution channels into the UK market which remain unchanged.

“We are delighted to partner with Meridian,” said Tim Sinnaeve, who heads up Barco Residential. “As a leading British innovator of home audio solutions, Meridian shares our passion for creating the ultimate experience for our customers and offering technology of the highest quality. With Meridian on board as a distributor, we look forward to growing our presence in the UK market, and working together to provide the complete home theatre solution.”

Meridian’s complimentary Design and Specification Service can assist dealers in planning their project schemes as efficiently and accurately as possible. Solutions from Barco Residential are now fully integrated into this service to provide installers with a complete audio-visual scheme. 

Meridian’s own home theatre in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, offers a fantastic showcase for dealers and their clients to experience a Meridian surround system and Barco Residential projection solution.
