The free app offers the convenience of browsing without interrupting playback, so you can guide your guests through your collection. For one example, you can filter by actor, director, or genre, so that while friends and family enjoy the famous Dead Parrot sketch, you can select another John Cleese scene.
Or just select any room to see what's playing or even start another movie. "Using the iPad app, I can see what the kids are watching no matter where I am in the home," said Denise M., mother of three and Kaleidescape System owner." I can even see how much longer the movie will play, and when it's over, I can pick something else for them to watch."
"I no longer need to be in front of the television to fully control the system," said David Daniels of Electronic Systems Consultants in Aspen, CO." For one thing, I can be outside, by the pool, picking out music. And if I like what's playing, I can easily save it to play it again later."
The Kaleidescape App for iPad will be available worldwide on the App Store late in the fourth quarter of this year.
