Meridian & DT Screens Form Partnership
Meridian Audio has formed a new partnership with projection screen supplier, DT Screens, broadening its home theatre portfolio.
“Our new partnership with DT Screens is a really exciting development for Meridian,” says Rayner Sheridan, Meridian’s Director of Marketing. “Working together with DT Screens allows us to expand our offering to dealers so that we can provide a comprehensive home cinema solution, in addition to a range of projectors from Barco Residential and our own audio systems. We are delighted to be able to expand our product offering to include this innovative technology, and look forward to working with dealers on some wonderful home cinema projects.”
DT Screens offer a wide range of projection screen models, all of which are available up to 5.1m in width as standard, and can be created in much larger sizes on request. The screen fabrics are acoustically transparent so speakers can be positioned behind the screen.
“We wanted to make specifying and installing a projection screen as easy as possible for dealers,” says Neil Davidson, Managing Director of DT Screens. “Pricing is divided in to 30cm bands based only on screen width, so that the initial proposal can be made quickly without having to worry about the impact of small changes later. We have also developed our screens so that the aluminium frame mounted on the wall first, and then the projection surface and velvet bezels can be installed at the very end of the project. This is a key innovation that makes the installation process much easier for the dealer, and ensures that the sensitive screen is not damaged during the project.”
To help create a superior home cinema, Meridian’s complimentary Design and Specification Service can assist dealers in planning their project schemes as efficiently and accurately as possible. DT Screens are now fully integrated into this service, alongside Meridian’s own audio systems, Barco’s projectors and Cinema–ATS’ acoustic treatment solutions. Meridian’s own home cinema in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, incorporates a winning combination of Meridian, Cinema–ATS, DT Screens and Barco Residential product to create a fantastic showcase for dealers and their clients.
