Meridian Audio and Barco Residential have announced a partnership to provide professional installers in North America with access to both brands and the capability to “create the very best home cinema and media room experience for their customers.”
“We are keen to help our dealers provide authentic, premium quality and profitable home theater experiences for their clients,” says Rayner Sheridan, Meridian’s Director of Marketing. “Our partnership with Barco Residential now provides dealers access to excellent quality projection technology in addition to our high-performance audio, all within 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.”
Building on the company’s 80-year legacy, Barco Residential products and technologies are custom-designed and built in Barco’s European Design Centers in Belgium and Norway, to create the highest quality home cinema and media room experience. The range includes Media Series, Theatre Series and top of the range Cinema-at-home Series projectors, offering significant performance advantages for a wide range of viewing applications, specifications and price-points. The new brand partnership will complement Barco Residential’s existing distribution channels, which remain unchanged.
“We are delighted to partner with Meridian,” says 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 partner, we look forward to growing our presence in the US market, and working together to provide the complete home theater solution.”
To help create a superior home cinema and media room environment, 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.
Barco Residential products will be displayed at Meridian’s newly remodeled digital theater in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.
