Kaleidescape Named 2014 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree

Cinema One Recognized for Providing the Ultimate Home Theater Experience in an Easy-To-Use And Simple-To-Install Movie Player

SUNNYVALE, CA – December 9, 2013 – Kaleidescape, Inc., the market leader in movie servers, today announced that the company’s latest innovation, Cinema One—the ultimate movie player for the perfect home theater experience—has been named a 2014 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in the Home Audio/Video Components category. A preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers, and members of the trade media selected the honorees from entries in this prestigious program. Kaleidescape is renowned for its movie servers installed in the most spectacular home theaters around the world. This year CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards recognized Kaleidescape’s Cinema One for its ability to deliver the same great theater experience in an easy-to-use and simple-to-install movie player.

Cinema One combines pristine picture quality with high-fidelity sound to transform any living room into the ultimate home theater. Unlike streaming services, Cinema One lets viewers enjoy all of their movies in true bit-for-bit Blu-ray and DVD quality—whether imported from CD, DVD, or Blu-ray disc or downloaded from the Kaleidescape Store. As the only movie system to support Blu-ray quality movie downloads, Cinema One delivers amazing convenience without any compromise in quality.

Cinema One can store and play up to 600 DVD or 100 Blu-ray quality movies and goes from zero to opening scene faster than any Blu-ray player on the market. Kaleidescape also knows exactly where a feature film starts so viewers go straight to the picture, with no delays from previews, menus, or ads. This family-friendly movie server has also been designed to meet the needs of young children by automatically switching to a simplified user interface with a specially designed child remote.

“Cinema One brings the Kaleidescape Experience to a wider audience, and we are honored by this nomination from the Consumer Electronics Association,” said Michael Malcolm, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Kaleidescape. “For more than a decade, our world-class movie-watching experience has been the hallmark of the Kaleidescape brand. With Cinema One’s intuitive interface, comprehensive Movie Guide and ability to download true Blu-ray quality movies online, we are now able to deliver the same great experience to many more people around the world.”

Since 1976, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has sponsored the CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards, which recognize achievements in product design and engineering. CEA is also the producer of the International CES, an annual global gathering for the consumer technology industry. At this year’s International CES—to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 7 to 10—Cinema One from Kaleidescape will be displayed at The Venetian.

The 2014 honorees will also be on display at CES Unveiled: The Official Media Event of the International CES, which takes place January 5, from 4 to 7 p.m., at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
