Kaleidescape Delivers Ultimate 2.35 Widescreen Experience

Enjoy Your 2.35 Theater Without Mode Switches Or Lens Movements


INDIANAPOLIS, IN; CEDIA EXPO – September 7, 2011 – Kaleidescape, Inc., the market leader in movie servers, today announced CinemaScape, optimizing the viewing experience in 2.35 projection home theaters. Until now, switching between aspect ratios usually required a mode switch and movement of an anamorphic lens. CinemaScape eliminates this disruptive glitch by performing the necessary video processing.

“Now it’s a fluid and seamless experience when I’m exploring my collection of movies,” said Eric Schmidt, Founder and President of Sound and Vision in Willowbrook, IL. “With the Kaleidescape System I can jump around instantly, reliving memorable scenes and watching songs from different concerts, and with CinemaScape the experience is even more spectacular.”

The Kaleidescape System’s award-winning onscreen user interface can now take advantage of the entire 2.35 screen. The result is a movie covers view with twelve more movies, and a movie list view that shows the title, actors, director, genre, year of release, MPAA rating and runtime all at once.

“2.35 screens are found in most of today’s high-end home theaters, including 26 of the 29 projects contending for the 2011 Electronic Lifestyles awards,” said Michael Malcolm, Founder, Chairman, and CEO. “CinemaScape provides an unrivaled experience for these installations, with seamless transitions between content of different aspect ratios and a user interface that takes advantage of the entire screen.”

CinemaScape will be demonstrated in an immersive theater setting in booth #2629 at CEDIA EXPO 2011 in Indianapolis, IN from September 8-10, 2011. It will be included in a KEAOS software update during Q4 2011, which will be distributed automatically to Kaleidescape Systems via the Internet.
