CEDIA and Guy Singleton have made the decision to transfer ownership of the program to Guy Singleton – The Cinema Designer.

Access to The Cinema Designer will remain a CEDIA member benefit, with the Media Room tier still available to members for free, and the Cinema Room and Cinema Room Pro tiers are remaining available at the same discounted rate.


Integrators Can Design Monitor Audio Theatres In Minutes Using The Cinema Designer

Monitor Audio's products are available within home theatre design software, The Cinema Designer’s manufacturer database, allowing any home cinema installer, designer or dealer anywhere in the world to design technically accurate home cinemas and media rooms using the brand’s wide range of loudspeakers, subwoofers and amplifiers.



What Is The Cinema Designer And Why Is It Beneficial For Dealers And Installers?

  • The Cinema Designer (TCD) is a cloud-based design tool that allows home cinema professionals to design any dedicated cinema or media room in minutes.
  • TCD allows users to create technically impeccable dedicated cinema or media room designs, support documents, and aesthetic renders that reflect the way the finished room will look.
  • TCD calculates and produces in minutes what would take an experienced cinema designer weeks to complete.
  • TCD creates a 3D CAD drawing for any cinema or media room in under 30 seconds and is available to users anywhere in the world.
  • TCD produces comprehensive documentation that meets the minimum standard required to enter the CEDIA Awards in its cinema and media room design categories.


Please see a list of Monitor Audio’s products (updated 2023), which are available in TCD below - 

  • Platinum Series 3G
  • Silver Series 7G
  • Gold Series 5G
  • Bronze Series 6G
  • Creator Series
  • Cinergy

  • SoundFrame
  • Custom Subwoofers


TCD users can confidently design technically accurate 32 channel count Dolby Atmos and DTS:X home cinemas using Monitor Audio’s products; TCD will calculate the exact speaker placements in seconds.

TCD eliminates the guesswork when it comes to placing all the required loudspeakers accurately in a room in a way that is relative to the listening area, while eliminating equipment combinations that simply won't work. In fact, using TCD is the only way home technology professionals can accurately design technically perfect high spatial resolution home theatres in minutes.

Users can quickly and easily get to a standards-based, scientifically designed set of drawings, complete with information about the performance that should be expected from their particular combination of speakers and amplifiers.

“There are only a few brands with this level of pedigree from the outset. I always wanted the best brands on board with TCD, and Monitor Audio are one of the biggest and the best out there. They have a product for any scenario, which I know our users will make really good use of. If you want products for a high-level uber theatre, or for a media room, they’ve got it. Our users have been asking for Monitor Audio for some time, so we know that they are a very popular brand, and we’re pleased to finally be able to offer them within TCD.”
