Rockwell Collins and Kaleidescape® announce integrated entertainment interface

Rockwell Collins and Kaleidescape® announced they have developed a video and control interface that integrates Rockwell Collins cabin management system with the Kaleidescape entertainment server.

Kaleidescape allows the storage of DVDs and CDs on an array of fail-safe hard disk drives, and allows the automatic viewing and organization of music and movie collections. The system is proven in the home entertainment market, and now has the capability to be integrated with Rockwell Collins business jet cabin management systems.

"The successful integration of our cabin management system with the Kaleidescape system is another example of Rockwell Collins' mirroring the home entertainment environment for business jet passengers," said Tommy Dodson, vice president and general manager, Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins.

"Many of our customers who have Kaleidescape systems in their homes are anxious to have the same entertainment experience available in their aircraft. This integration with the Rockwell Collins' cabin management system is a big step in that direction," said Michael Malcolm, founder and CEO of Kaleidescape, Inc.

The control interface features a 10.6" touch screen display, providing complete access to all Kaleidescape control functions. The controller offers picture-in-picture and preview capabilities, as well as the ability to view Kaleidescape content full screen.  The video output from the Kaleidescape system is directly connected to the cabin system distribution system for viewing on any seat or bulkhead display, with audio available on cabin headsets and speakers.

Kaleidescape has redefined home entertainment by transforming the way movies and music are collected, managed and enjoyed throughout the home. The system combines a compelling interface, outstanding industrial design, and services that set new standards in the consumer electronics industry. Kaleidescape was founded in 2001 and is privately held. The company is headquartered in Mountain View, Calif. with research and development conducted by Kaleidescape Canada, Inc., based in Waterloo, Ontario. Kaleidescape products are available through a worldwide network of custom-installation dealers and distributors. For more information, please visit www.kaleidescape.com .
