“The Watershed Group’s blueprint approach to building home cinemas provides Canadian installers an opportunity to offer customers the right Kaleidescape solution, and ensure the environment allows for the best playback experience,” explains Tayloe Stansbury, Kaleidescape’s chief executive officer. “The Kaleidescape system, designed to play 4K HDR movies with a video bitrate four times higher and lossless audio up to ten times higher than any streaming device, is the clear choice in powering best-in-class home cinemas.”

Entrusting us with the Kaleidescape family not only humbles us but allows us to strategically invest the resources necessary to position the brand for the success it so duly deserves.”

Kaleidescape’s Canada movie store has one of the largest collections of 4K titles with lossless Dolby Atmos audio. The store boasts over 8,000 titles for purchase and more than 4,000 for rent.
