Kaleidescape Adds Rotten Tomatoes® Movie Ratings to Award-winning iPad App
INDIANAPOLIS, CEDIA EXPO – September 7, 2012 – Kaleidescape, Inc., the market leader in movie servers, today announced that it will integrate movie ratings and reviews from Rotten Tomatoes® into the free Kaleidescape App for iPad. Rotten Tomatoes offers a quick and easy aggregation of ratings and opinions from hundreds of movie reviewers.
The Kaleidescape App for iPad provides an immersive experience for browsing and searching your collection of movies. Once you’ve found something of interest, you can select a movie, scene, or song, and view it on your TV instantly. Information from Rotten Tomatoes will be seamlessly integrated into the app, putting reviews and ratings at your fingertips to help you choose something to watch. At the end of the movie, you can also use the app to compare your views with those of the leading experts.
“We’re pleased to partner with Kaleidescape to make Rotten Tomatoes reviews and ratings available to their customers,” said Steve Polsky, General Manager of Flixster, the parent company of Rotten Tomatoes. “Rotten Tomatoes ratings and reviews have become a trusted source for consumers to get a total picture of movie trends and critics’ opinions.”
“Kaleidescape customers have amassed an average of 508 movies each, many of which they have yet to watch,” said Michael Malcolm, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Kaleidescape. “Our customers can now easily access the critical guidance from around the world that has been aggregated by Rotten Tomatoes, when deciding what to watch next from their personal collections.”
The Kaleidescape App for iPad with Rotten Tomatoes ratings and reviews will be demonstrated in the Kaleidescape booth at CEDIA EXPO 2012 (Booth #3733) at the Indiana Convention Center from September 6–8, 2012, and will be available by the end of this year.
