Integrators in Canada Gain Full Access to TDG Audio, Vanguard Dynamics and Blue Aura Brands with Upgraded In-Market Support

Ontario, CA - January 12, 2016 - The DaVinci Group, Inc. (TDG), a leading manufacturer of superior quality custom integration solutions, is expanding its global distribution footprint northward, appointing Sound Developments Ltd. (Sound Developments) as its authorized distributor for Canada. This new appointment is effective immediately and covers The DaVinci Group's complete stable of brands, including TDG Audio, Vanguard Dynamics, and Blue Aura.

For almost twenty years, Sound Developments has served as a preferred resource for Canadian dealers and integrators, offering a solid line-up of leading home automation, home theater and custom integration brands, such as RTI, Pro Control, Digital Projection, Stewart Filmscreen, and more.
