Meridian Media Resource Center

Journalists, dealers and distributors can now download hi-res images, data 24/7

Meridian Audio is pleased to announce a new service for journalists, dealers and distributors who need up to date information on, and above all high -resolution images of, Meridian products.

The new Meridian Media Centre server is available via the Web or via FTP (preferred for large files). To begin using the server, point a web browser at:
http://greatcircle.meridian and follow the instructions.

The server contents are broken down into a number of sections, including Product Images, Room Images (photos of rooms with Meridian installations), Logos, Press releases, Data Sheets, and a special password -protected area for dealers and distributors containing advertising artwork, presentations and other information. Each area is accessed from a simple set of buttons.

Each of the photographic areas include high -resolution CMYK TIFF files ideal for features, magazine covers and advertising applications, plus large and small JPEGs for a variety of other applications. Under development is an 'Imagebank' preview system, where the images can be viewed as thumbnails or previews, making it easy to choose a file to download. This is currently being tested.

In addition to hi -res images, the server contains the latest versions of data sheets for current products, plus press releases and other useful information.

The availability of the server means that there will no longer be a need to wait while we supply a special CD -ROM, and you won't have to put up with whatever resolution images the maximum file size of your email system allows. Instead you can download what you need, when you want. We can also advise you on a suitable image for a particular purpose and email you a link to it.
