"The CEDIA and CTA Home Theater Standards documents, CEB22/CEB23 are simply applied physics for designing high performance audio and video home systems. We see the Cinema Designer as a user friendly tool for obtaining system compliance with these Standards. For 2016 and beyond submission for CEDIA Awards requires following and documenting Standards compliance. We applaud the launch of this tool to help integrators insure high performance for their clients."

"The Cinema Design tool is a great way to quickly evaluate various options for your Auro-3D Home Theater, taking many parameters into account, and come to a solid starting point from which to further design your full home theater. It helps to see that a good speaker layout is critical to create a natural immersive listening experience."

“TCD is a great tool to get the basic elements of a theater right in a short period of time and according to industry standards.  I think every AV Integrator should give it a try and see how it can shorten design time.  Wonderful Tool!”

"We have followed the progression and development of this software from a very early stage. At an early stage it was possible to see that this instrument would become a game changer. Having a tool with the ability to create cinema designs to industry standards, to the latest formats and have technically accurate drawings that can be dropped into CAD is something incredibly useful. Add to that a sales tool in the form of 3D renders and a kit list - Wow. Oh, and by the way, it does it ALL in around 30 seconds - I’m still in front of the client and their design, to correct standards, is complete! Something we will be recommending to all our dealers."
"Not as clumsy or as random as a person. An essential elegant tool… for a more civilized age."

"Designing a great theater is actually not that hard. Acquiring the knowledge and experience is however a life time investment. Time is often the evil parameter over knowledge and skills, that result in high end theater performance trade off. The average project will throw more design changes than your ability to fully re-engineer a solution.

This tool will first and foremost benefit the best designers as a go to solution, helping them keep up with the project life cycle. It will also help every System Integrator acquiring design knowledge at a much faster pace than their older piers did. While everyone will praise Guy for his engineering talent, I must admit I am jealous of his sales skills. All it took was a 30 second demo/pitch and we were sold !"

"I first learned about Guys software at Cedia 2015. To say I was intrigued would be a complete understatement. As most Theater designers know, mapping out a room and determining speaker, seating and treatment locations can take quite some time. To think there was a platform that would drastically cut the design process down, was exciting but a little skeptical as well. Then we had a meeting with Guy showing off the software and I was blown away. In matter of minutes, you had virtually everything necessary to present a proposal to a client. DWG drawings, speaker and seating layout, ideal screen specifications and even a few renders of what the room would look like. It’s an absolutely fantastic software program and I look forward to using it in the future."

“We work really hard to ensure that our cinema designs are built to the CEDIA CEA guidelines and appreciate how time consuming this process is. The guidelines are in place for a very good reason; to ensure repeatable results.
This is absolutely critical and the design tool gives you exactly that : years of study, practical experience and knowledge in a simple to use yet incredibly powerful program.”

“The Cinema Designer software is potentially transformative in the way it will allow almost anyone to design a technically competent cinema room that meets all the critical industry standards. Though companies will still need lot of expertise and further training to transfer these designs into reality, this software will ensure that no fundamental design mistakes have been made. This will go a very long way to raising the standard of private cinemas everywhere. Bravo Guy for some very clever work.”

“Cinema Designer is straight forward and straight up awesome for room design and documentation. Guy's years of experience and expertise are evident throughout and I can see great value for designers and systems integrators in providing great explaination for value added services beyond the installation - like video calibration and acoustics engineering. Great work Guy!

“The Cinema Designer is one of those rare tools that converts a knowledge base – developed and refined over years – into an end-user report in a reliable and industry compliant manner.

A tool that can be used by both first timers as well as industry specialists in an extremely fast and user friendly method to present the end-user with brilliant output reports that can be understood without being overwhelmed.

Thank you Guy for your tireless and selfless efforts and contributions to the A-V field.”

“We selected The Cinema Designer software to provide a very definite proposition for our cinema customers in the future. Home cinema and media spaces is a focus we have wanted to develop in the business for some time, and we have been designing a range of media rooms and performance level cinema room solutions (right up to Reference Level where the budget allows) using traditional CAD based information and spreadsheets to calculate how rooms will be delivered and perform.

We needed something to bring all that together, and seeing The Cinema Designer product really grabbed our attention at exactly the right time. The way the software takes the ‘mathematical’ levels of calculation that are essential to the delivery of the final room, overlays the performance of a wide range of expertly selected components, sets the ideal viewing and seating positions and then generates something the customer can appreciate (the layouts, and renders of the potential room layouts) – is absolutely superb.

There is a measured, logical structure to how the final renders and equipment information are produced as part of the overall proposal, and importantly, this final stage looks great and can be branded with our company information.

There are only a few people in the world with the level of dedication, eye for detail and let’s face it, level of experience to be able to actually put this product together. What Guy has done with the construction, and the levels of thought and thoroughness so obviously applied to the software, reflects all the above.

The Cinema Designer will now serve as our central part of our ongoing focus on cinema solutions, and definitely help us provide meaningful information for clients, architects, interior designers and main contractors on our projects in the future. Thanks Guy!”

TCD helps us cut through some of the laborious tasks associated with producing great home theatre rooms.  It’s a really good sales tool too, saving hours of time to produce a professionally presented design.  One still needs to understand the basics of what makes a good home cinema and like any tool, its benefit really comes from knowing how to use it. TCD is great value and can save hours of time on a single project, so the annual cost is easily justified.  We love the fact that most of our major suppliers products are already built-in to TCD making it even more relevant to enhance our designs and projects.   TCD is a sophisticated and complex design tool so anyone using TCD who has not had any formal training would benefit from checking out some of the training courses offered by CEDIA. http://www.cediaeducation.com/home-cinema-design-workshop

We have been aware of the software for a while and joined in when Guy did the first webinar, an hour we’ll spent. Since then we have jumped on-board and produced our first 5 design. To say its quick, easy and accurate is not doing the software justice. We recently had to design a Cinema for a client with a £250K budget, and using TCD we could easily and quickly provide detailed information giving the client 3 different initial ideas to choose from, and taking only 15 mins to produce all three.

Going forward TCD is now our go to software when designing our Cinema and Media Rooms, and with more manufactures being added all the time its only getting better.
