The best feature that Kaleidescape has to offer is instant access. Pure and simple.

As a result, when I want to unwind and relax, it’s important that I’m able to do so with a minimum of fuss. Being a low-tech kind of guy I was wary of Kaleidescape—until I tried it. It didn’t take long for me to become a believer.

In the weeks after my system was installed I found myself loading up batches of DVDs and Blu-rays from my collection at every spare moment. What kind of films? My favorite genres: musicals, animated cartoons and silent films. This system is perfect for all of them.

If I just want to revisit my favorite Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers number from their classic musical Swing Time all I have to do is select “Pick Yourself Up.” I used to have to scroll through several menu screens to get there…not any more.

When I’m in the mood for Popeye, a Disney short, or one of my favorite Bugs Bunny cartoons, the list of contents unfolds quickly and easily so I can zero in on the one that suits me at that moment.

Most of my silent film discs—from The Phantom of the Opera to Metropolis—come with bonus features, and that too is made incredibly easy with the Kaleidescape menu. The same goes for collections of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton shorts.

I especially enjoy showing off Kaleidescape to friends who come over, and because so many of the things I like are bite-sized (rather than feature-length) it’s fun to pull up a great production number or a funny cartoon short.”
