Kaleidescape, a manufacturer of high-performance home cinema playback solutions, and Stewart Filmscreen, a benchmark projection screen manufacturer, have announced a newly formed partnership.
Used in the home and in Hollywood, Stewart’s handcrafted screens are designed with integrity and built to last, to deliver a next-level viewing experience. Stewart’s masking systems store multiple screen aspect ratios and are designed to work with all room automation systems. With controls for adjustable shades and lighting themes, Kaleidescape automatically activates the Stewart Filmscreen masking system to display every movie in its native aspect ratio, to deliver a cinematic experience at an unprecedented level of convenience and quality.
“For 75 years, Stewart Filmscreen has been the industry’s choice for reference screens with sleek form factor designs, precise screen masking capabilities and expertise in offering the perfect screen for any private cinema environment,” says Norma Garcia-Muro, vice president of marketing, Kaleidescape.
“With Kaleidescape’s unparalleled, reference-quality movie ecosystem, the combination of Kaleidescape’s Terra + Strato C systems and Stewart’s best-in-class screens, with directly integrated masking automation, will take any private cinema to the next level of luxury.”
As part of this newly formed partnership, the companies for a limited time are offering homeowners when they purchase a Stewart Filmscreen Director’s Choice, VistaScope, or WallMask screen masking system, a $1,000 off MSRP on any qualifying Kaleidescape system. This promotion is available from December 1, 2021, through December 31, 2022.
“This is an exciting offering from Kaleidescape and Stewart Filmscreen that aligns perfectly with the standard of reference quality imaging capabilities our customers have come to expect when installing a Stewart screen,” comments Adrian Silva, vice president of sales, Stewart Filmscreen.
“We are extremely impressed with Kaleidescape’s unrivaled playback quality, especially when it comes to 4K UHD with HDR content, that delivers an image so pristine you can’t take your eyes off the screen.”
Both companies add that along with over 13,000 movies, TV series, and concerts available from the Kaleidescape Movie Store, only Kaleidescape players are designed to present movies at full reference, with lossless quality audio.
The Kaleidescape system is designed to play 4K HDR movies with a video bitrate four times higher while reproducing lossless quality audio at up to 10 times higher than any streaming device. This results in an enormous difference in image and sound quality when played on a perfectly paired Stewart screen and companion multichannel audio system.
