For owners of ultra-high-end cinemas – or those who aspire to own one – there were two announcements by AV player manufacturer Kaleidescape this past week. Both Kaleidescape and Trinnov Audio entered a partnership for new customers of two of the companies’ products. With the purchase of a Trinnov Altitude16 or Altitude32 AV processor and a Kaleidescape Terra + Strato C, customers are promised a package of 4K Dolby Atmos and DTS:X mastered titles free on the Kaleidescape system. The promotion is available from September 1st, 2021, through December 31st, 2022.

“Combining Kaleidescape’s lossless quality movie soundtracks with Trinnov’s Altitude 3D audio processing optimizes the performance of any private cinema, to deliver an experience so real, you become part of the story,” says Tayloe Stansbury, CEO, Kaleidescape. “It is only fitting that this collaboration between Trinnov and Kaleidescape includes a generous package of titles that truly showcase a private cinema’s capabilities with the most immersive image and sound experience possible.”

Kaleidescape says its system can play 4K HDR movies with a video bitrate four times higher while achieving lossless quality audio at “up to ten times higher” than any other streaming device. 

Second, Kaleidescape and Lutron announced the integration of the latter’s flagship HomeWorks lighting control system with current Kaleidescape players. Kaleidescape and HomeWorks working together allows control of Lutron’s Sivoia QS shades, and Ketra intelligent lighting solutions.

Kaleidescape plays movies with lossless quality audio and metadata with cues for control of both lights and shades with the HomeWorks system. Kaleidescape sends information about a movie for adjusting screen masking, projector lens shift, and lighting triggers for closing shades and slow dimming of lights. At the end of the show, lights can be triggered to come on slowly. Furthermore, intermission cues can be used to transition in and out of the movie when a break is needed.
