Series Home Control System with built-in multi-language support. Niles Audio introduced the third generation of the DS Directed Soundfield Ceiling-Mount loudspeaker line and the new ICS Ceiling Mount Loudspeaker line-up, while Xantec debuted its Quick Configuration software installation/configuration mode for its MX88 IP-enabled multi-zone audio/video controller. New developments from ATON and Sunfire were also showcased.
“We are proud to present these iconic custom installation brands to the UK market,” said Lee Hooker, sales manager for MidwichHome. “The AVC brands provide professional installers with industry-leading audio, video and control solutions for residential applications, and through this exclusive partnership we are pleased to establish Midwich as the UK’s leading source for custom home electronics installations.”
Meanwhile, in a further significant announcement affecting the company’s distribution portfolio, MidwichHome has become a UK distributor for Epson’s premium home theatre projectors. Epson models distributed by MidwichHome include the EH-TW5500, the EH-TW4400 and the EH-TW3600.
The new association was highlighted by Epson and MidwichHome throughout the recent CEDIA HTE event.

The quality of the projector range is widely recognised and reflected in the numerous awards the products receive. The premium projectors we’re handling complement the rest of our portfolio perfectly.”
