Why should i use Kaleidescape when there are cheaper solutions?
After living with a Kaleidescape system for a month you’ll come to appreciate that it just works. Compared to other media player solutions it is expensive however for those who do not have the time to mess around Kaleidescape is the solution for you. With 4K, Bluray and DVD based digital downloads, disc importing and playback solutions all in one its a solution that just works. For the dealer it is a solution where they can just install it and leave knowing that the solution is robust and requires little to no support.
Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver?
Create the perfect cinema experience by dimming the lights down when a movie starts, ramp it back up when the movie ends or if the user pauses or stops the movie.
Automate Cinema screen masking and projection modes based on aspect ratio and Cinemascape feedback.
Set the driver up so it automatically turns off when the screensaver kicks in. Great if you forget that you've paused a movie or have fallen asleep whilst watching.
Setup a button on your keypad to start playback of you or your family’s favourite movie. Great for kids.
What hardware will this work on?
This driver will work on all IP controllable models of Kaleidescape. If it works with the official Kaleidescape iPad application it will work with our driver.
