Josh.ai, a developer of AI solutions for the custom home, and Kaleidescape, developers of high-performance home video systems, have announced a strategic partnership they say transform home cinema. Deep-linking integration with Kaleidescape enables Josh.ai’s proprietary voice control to launch any title saved to a client’s content library. Kaleidescape customers are now empowered with contextual voice commands, like:
“Ok Josh, watch Indiana Jones!”
Through Josh.ai A.I.-based technologies, the system adjusts the theater’s lights, closes the drapes, drops the screen, and launches the movie on Kaleidescape to engage the audience with a newfound sense of freedom and joy when launching their cinematic experience.
Kaleidescape offers homeowners a true, digital experience of movies with lossless audio and full reference video to maximize every component in a client’s theater. Josh.ai now provides intuitive and limitless access to a customer’s movie library however is most convenient. The elegantly designed Josh.ai app’s remote UI offers navigational control of Kaleidescape menus and enables clients to create their own magical scenes, like “Movie Night,” to set the perfect cinematic mood. Kaleidescape and Josh.ai increase the quality and accessibility of the home theater for every member of the family.
Once Josh.ai is deployed, each Kaleidescape device is automatically detected on the network along with its downloaded content. As part of the Josh.ai AV setup workflow, Kaleidescape Stratos are configurable as input sources to be routed across applicable video zones. Beyond native control in a standalone Josh.ai and Kaleidescape-powered home theater, Josh.ai can also control Kaleidescape players when they are routed through Crestron SIMPL, Crestron Home, and Control4 video distribution.
In addition to the efficiency of contextual voice automation, Kaleidescape partners will be comforted by Josh.ai’s strong stance as a privacy-focused voice assistant, purpose-built for professionally installed smart home systems. Clients will have peace of mind knowing that Josh.ai is committed to providing a delightful and inclusive voice experience without sharing or selling user data for marketing purposes.
