Kaleidescape Announces Game-Changing Marine Movie Service

Convenient Delivery of Movies, from Major Hollywood Studios to Luxury Yachts, in Highest-Fidelity Audio & Video


 

MONACO, Sept. 27, 2018 – Kaleidescape, a leader in luxury home cinema experience, announced today a one-of-a-kind service designed for luxury yachts & superyachts.

Kaleidescape has served the yacht sector with uncompromised content quality for over a decade. Today, more than 1,000 luxury yachts are fitted with the Kaleidescape system. Kaleidescape’s new marine movie service enables yacht owners to custom configure their onboard movie system with the content of their choice in the highest-fidelity available.

Watching a film is a popular activity aboard yachts. Many vessels rely on DVD and Blu-ray discs for their content. This is because data connections at sea are much less capable and more expensive than on land. Moreover, it usually isn’t practical to download movies from the cloud when a yacht is at dock. However, DVD and Blu-ray discs can be hard to obtain when traveling by sea.

Kaleidescape has solved these problems by licensing approximately 10,000 titles from the major Hollywood motion picture studios, specifically for marine use, and by offering an easy way to purchase this content from Kaleidescape for delivery either on a new Kaleidescape system, or on an encrypted USB hard drive for updating an existing Kaleidescape system. Kaleidescape marine customers now can select from and purchase movie titles on the same dates the titles are made available to local customers in key territories throughout the world, including the United States and the Caribbean, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Greece, Australia, and New Zealand.

“Kaleidescape has long enabled luxury cinema aboard yachts and superyachts,” said Cheena Srinivasan, Kaleidescape founder and CEO. “Now we are delighted to deliver the finest Hollywood content, because exquisite content is in the key to an extraordinary cinematic experience.”

“The superyacht sector is supposed to be about delivering the finest onboard experience, including onboard entertainment. Kaleidescape’s new marine movie service makes it convenient for captains and crew to purchase the greatest movies for owners and guests to enjoy,” said Scott Molloy, crew trainer in yacht AV systems, and former AV/IT Engineer on large yachts (89-180 metres, 2005-2015).

“These floating palaces, with cabins, great rooms, private cinema, and decks fitted with luxury audio video systems, are inherently dependent on high-fidelity source products like the Kaleidescape movie player,” said Guenter Trempnau, owner of Home & Marine Electronic Systems, in Bremen, Germany. “A movie service that caters to marine customers has been the missing piece of the puzzle to date, and will be a transformational change for yacht entertainment. The Kaleidescape brand comes with the pedigree for great content, hardware reliability, and software that truly offers a mesmerizing entertainment experience.”

This new service will become available later this year.
