scanmoviebarcodesappFree App Utilizes Barcodes to Simplify the Movie-Shopping Experience for Kaleidescape Customers

The new free app for iPhone from Kaleidescape, Inc., scans a DVD or Blu-ray Disc barcode to determine whether or not the user already owns that title, and if so, in what format. With this new barcode scanning app, Kaleidescape clients need never be aggravated by purchasing the same movie or cd twice. Additionally, upon scanning the barcode, the app provides information from the Kaleidescape Movie Guide, including a synopsis and details such as director, cast, aspect ratio, running time, and rating. The app represents another innovative product from the Kaleidescape family, whose genesis is rooted in the enhancement of the home cinematic experience.

"This new app broadens the value of the rich information in our exclusive Movie Guide by making it available to our customers when they are shopping," said Michael Malcolm, Kaleidescape founder, chairman and CEO. "It also extends the elegance and simplicity of the Kaleidescape experience beyond the home."

For those of you unfamiliar with Kaleidescape, they design and manufacture specialized servers for audio-videophiles. The system organizes and visually catalogs the client's collection of Blu-ray Discs, DVDs and CDs in high definition with all the detail one would expect from their high-end DVD or Blu-Ray player. Kaleidescape's exclusive Movie Guide, delivered seamlessly via internet, includes more than 135,000 Blu-ray and DVD titles and provides video bookmarks so movies start instantly, without advertisements, trailers, or menus. It also provides immediate access to songs on concert films, and control triggers for automatically adjusting screen masking, lighting, and curtains during playback.

"Buying a movie is usually an impulse decision, and this new Kaleidescape mobile app helps customers select the right movie in the right format," said Eric Schmidt, founder and CEO of Sound and Vision in Willowbrook, Illinois. "It's also useful at home for determining what movies have and have not been loaded onto the system."
