Persistence Market Research +1 800 961 0353, persistencemarketresearch.com TCD Launches Trinnov Update The Cinema Designer (TCD) has announced one of its most significant updates since its launch: a new Trinnov update is now live, enabling users to quickly and accurately design high channel count theatres with ease. With this update, TCD users can design technically accurate 38 channel count Dolby Atmos and DTS:X home cinemas in a matter of minutes. TCD is a cloud-based design tool that allows installers and dealers to design any dedicated cinema or media room in minutes, giving the integrator more time to focus on the client due to spending less time on the mechanics of the design process. The TCD Trinnov update 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. TCD requires a Level I Certification program. Any company looking to achieve Level I Certification must attend a live training event and either sign up and demonstrate their ability to use TCD, or demonstrate that they have all the engineering resources in place to do an equally good job designing these more complex theatres.
