Discover how to specify high performance media rooms

Digital entertainment plays a huge part in the modern lifestyle and is something that can be truly astounding when experienced in the correct environment. Dedicated and convertible entertainment spaces need careful thought and professional design to perform well, and ultimately impress the homeowner.

Tailored to help residential builders and developers understand how to choose and specify dedicated entertainment spaces as well as exploring the design principles needed, CEDIA® has launched a new Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training course titled Designing Home Cinemas and Media Rooms.

Matt Nimmons, Managing Director, CEDIA EMEA comments:

“At CEDIA, training is the very core of our organisation, and Designing Home Cinemas and Media Rooms CPD is a crucial, new resource for design and build professionals. This CPD will allow you to connect with those technology integrators who are CEDIA members, and understand the importance of working together in the early stages of a project, as well as keeping an ongoing relationship long after the project is complete.”

Delivering a smart home to a client requires collaboration between the design and build professional and the technology integrator. CEDIA members are integrators who specialise in the planning, design, supply, installation, and concealment of technology systems for the modern, intelligent home. They partner directly with design professionals to maximise the lifestyle, function, aesthetic, and efficiency benefits of the connected home for their clients.

CEDIA offers a Finder Service on its website, which allows design and build professionals to locate their nearest technology integrator. Users can search CEDIA member companies by postcode, services, and certification. For more information, please visit
