Kaleidescape, Inc. announced the debut of an Internet delivery of Blu-ray quality movies.
Now, according to Kaleidescape, owners can download movies from the Kaleidescape Store with audio and video quality equal to Blu- ray Disc and enjoy hours of special features and bonus content.
The Company said the Kaleidescape Store is fully integrated with UltraViolet, the home entertainment industry standard for movies in the cloud. Once a movie is purchased through the Kaleidescape Store, that title can be automatically added to the customer's UltraViolet account, and then viewed through any participating UltraViolet retailer service, including Flixster. Kaleidescape customers can seamlessly access their UltraViolet movies through the Flixster app. With tens of millions of downloads to date, Flixster is one of the most popular online destinations for discovering and accessing entertainment, and UltraViolet playback is compatible with hundreds of millions of tablets, smartphones, game consoles and connected televisions and Blu-ray players, as well as with PCs and Macs.
According to a release, a beta version of the Kaleidescape Store opened in December 2012 with content from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, enabling the download of movies and TV shows in DVD quality. In addition to providing the latest new releases, the Kaleidescape Store provides a powerful discovery platform, helping customers discover great films for their libraries, regardless of release date. In addition to an innovative "complete my collection" feature, the service also provides movie recommendations from noted film critic Leonard Maltin.
"The new Kaleidescape Store makes it easy for our customers to discover, purchase and enjoy great movies over the Internet without compromise," said Michael Malcolm, founder, chairman and CEO of Kaleidescape. "People want to own the movies they love for viewing for years to come in the best quality possible, and this is the first service to enable such content to be delivered electronically. We already have seen a great response to the Warner Bros. library during the beta launch of the Kaleidescape Store, and we are looking forward to providing customers with these new capabilities."
"Flixster is thrilled to be providing Kaleidescape customers with an easy way to enjoy their UltraViolet movies on mobile devices," said Joe Greenstein, Co-founder & CEO Flixster, Inc. "Customers can stream titles on a wide variety of tablets and phones or download them for viewing later in the car or on a plane. This is very helpful for parents who travel with children."
Kaleidescape said its store brings the highest standard of content into the home with just a click of a button. Movie lovers will now enjoy:
-Blu-ray quality content with video resolution up to 1080p/24 and Dolby TrueHD and DTS-
HD Master Audio lossless soundtracks;
