Movie player maker Kaleidescape and Meyer Sound are offering a movie collection with purchase.
For a limited time, when customers purchase a Kaleidescape Terra movie server and Strato C movie player with any Meyer Sound loudspeaker surround system valued at more than $10,000 MSRP, they will receive a Meyer Sound-curated collection of movies valued at up to $1,000 USD.
The movie collection, personally selected by Meyer Sound’s technical team, contains 40 titles with immersive audio, including some with Dolby Atmos soundtracks. Movies will be preloaded onto the Kaleidescape Terra server.
“This is an exceptional promotion that brings together two industry-leading brands. Kaleidescape’s lossless-quality soundtracks provide Meyer Sound systems with the full-fidelity audio needed for that magical escape from reality,” said Norma Garcia-Muro, Kaleidescape VP of marketing, in a statement. “The result is an exceptional level of pure, honest sound rendered to private cinemas of any size.”
The Kaleidescape Terra and Strato C system is designed to play 4K HDR movies with a video bitrate eight times higher than any streaming device and lossless-quality audio up to 10 times higher.
“Working together, Meyer Sound and Kaleidescape will provide home cinema dealers with a personalized and unforgettable ‘big screen’ experience for their customers,” said Blake Vackar, residential solutions manager for Meyer Sound, in a statement. “No other source compares to Kaleidescape for providing such a versatile library with a lossless media path. With audio reproduced through Meyer Sound cinema systems, customers at home will hear exactly what the movie’s creators heard in the studio during the final mixing session. Thanks to this specially curated package, they will enjoy that experience across four decades of the absolute best in creative and dynamic cinema sound, from Apocalypse Now to Dune.”
A variety of Meyer Sound solutions are used in home cinemas, including the Ultra Reflex system, the first screen-channel loudspeaker system to deliver precise audio localization for direct view displays; the Bluehorn System, with full bandwidth studio monitors designed for high-resolution monitoring applications; and a line of self-powered full-range loudspeakers such as the ULTRA-X20.
