“Kaleidescape is focused on building the best movie servers and players for home theater and beyond,” comments Jack Kline.
“Providing lossless audio and preserving video fidelity, the Kaleidescape platform remains unchallenged as the highest-quality viewing experience … something I am both familiar with and keen on helping to advance.”
“As the only digital provider of movies with lossless audio and full reference video, Kaleidescape is poised for market expansion,” notes Thomas Molter.
Molter has more than 25 years of experience spanning creative, business, and operational leadership in the global entertainment industry.
