Meridian Audio has partnered with Cinema–ATS, a supplier of acoustic treatment solutions for home cinemas. Meridian will offer dealers the full range of Cinema–ATS solutions as part of its growing home cinema product portfolio, to create the ultimate home cinema experience. The move follows a similar partnership with DT Screens.

“Cinema–ATS allows us to expand our offering to dealers so that we can provide a comprehensive acoustic treatment solution for home cinemas, in addition to a range of projectors from Barco Residential and our own audio systems,” says Rayner Sheridan, Meridian’s Director of Marketing. “We are really excited to be able to expand our product offering to include this innovative and market-leading technology, and look forward to working with dealers on some exciting home cinema projects.”

Acoustic treatment of the walls and ceiling can make a dramatic difference to the performance of a home cinema. Cinema–ATS offers treatment solutions specifically designed to address the Three “R’s” of acoustics: resonance, reverberation and reflection.

Cinema–ATS Complete is designed for installation on all four walls and optionally the ceiling. It combines scattering panels to optimise reverberation and reflection, and the Multipanel, a dual purpose absorber which effectively tackles resonance for total system design flexibility. The scattering panels and Multipanel are 50mm deep, much shallower than conventional acoustic systems. This significantly increases the range of projects where the system can be installed, as many home cinema owners are unwilling to sacrifice the space required for conventional, much deeper acoustic treatments.

Cinema–ATS Packs is a simplified solution offering standard layouts and fixed quantities of materials making it particularly easy to specify and install. Each pack includes 12 scattering panels and 12 Foamsorber panels which are combined to optimise reverberation and reflection. Guidelines for subwoofer positioning are supplied to tackle resonance ensuring that the Three R’s of acoustics are well managed. The simplicity of the Cinema–ATS Pack not only allows dealers to reduce to the time they spend on an installation, but the easy packing and storage of the Cinema–ATS Pack means that they can safely stock product and easily transport it to site.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Meridian, who share our passion for creating the ultimate experience for our customers, and offering technology of the highest quality,” says Neil Davidson, of Cinema–ATS. “We noticed that there was a real gap in the market for a high performance acoustic solution that was easy to install, and found that dealers were getting frustrated with rigid, complex and expensive systems prescribed by acoustic consultants, which often resulted in products being used that were not right for the application. We designed a system that was suitable for almost any application, easy to install and offered the performance that dealers need to give their customers the very best experience.”

To help installers create a superior home cinema experience, Meridian’s complimentary Design and Specification Service is available to assist dealers in planning their project schemes as efficiently and accurately as possible. Cinema–ATS is now integrated into this service, alongside Meridian’s own audio systems and Barco’s projectors, to provide installers with a complete audio-visual scheme.

Installers can experience the treatments at Meridian’s Huntingdon demo room. For more news updates about Meridian Audio, visit our resource page here.
