Kaleidescape Announces Its Third-Generation Movie Store, Featuring 4K Ultra HD Titles for Download to Kaleidescape’s New Movie Players

Sunnyvale, CA – October 15, 2015 – Kaleidescape, Inc., the leading manufacturer of premium movie players and servers for the home, today announced the third generation of the Kaleidescape Movie Store. The company has licensed over 11,000 movies and 1,500 television seasons from a majority of the major motion-picture studios, in the highest available quality. The selection now includes over 100 4K Ultra HD titles for download to the company’s new Encore line of movie players and servers. Kaleidescape will also offer high-dynamic-range (HDR) titles as they become available.

“Our movie store continues to evolve, and we are very pleased to now offer true 4K Ultra HD content for download to Kaleidescape Encore products,” said Cheena Srinivasan, Kaleidescape co-founder and CEO. “Our unique approach of downloading premium-quality movies to local hard drives, so they can be played at bit rates up to 100 Mbps, is the way we deliver such a stunning home-cinema experience. Now, through the Kaleidescape Movie Store, we present a large selection of 4K content, as well as thousands of movies in true Blu-ray quality, which look fabulous on high-end 4K Ultra HD televisions.”

Since its inception, the Kaleidescape Movie Store has endeavored to be a best-in-class retail movie destination. A recommendation engine learns customers’ preferences and offers personalized selections for easy purchase and download. Kaleidescape also presents “disc-to-digital” offers, where customers can upgrade to the highest quality electronic format for the titles they already own.

“Kaleidescape is the very best way to watch a movie at home,” said Michael Lawder, a long-time Kaleidescape customer. “There is nothing else that even comes close. The experience is what grabs you. It is the fastest, simplest, most elegant way to watch and explore movies that you love, and it is why I love Kaleidescape. What’s more, with the Kaleidescape Store, I can buy movies on the Internet that play back with perfect quality—no interruptions or delays—and without the hassle of using discs.”

The new Kaleidescape Movie Store will go live late Q4, 2015.
