Building a company "we could all be proud of" was the genesis of Kaleidescape. "We literally gathered the founders with a singular vision of building a company we personally would want to work for," notes founder and chairman, Michael Malcolm.

"And we landed on the concept of delivering a quality motion picture experience throughout the home."

The Kaleidescape Story

The concept for Kaleidescape was born in early 2001, just after Michael Malcolm had a state-of-the art theater installed in his Colorado home. A small group of seasoned Silicon Valley entrepreneurs brainstormed the best way to serve up a rich cinematic experience in the home.

Kaleidescape's founders began to research everything they could about the motion picture business, licensing, and the technology of digital audio and video to bring their audacious goal to life. This led to their design of the Kaleidescape architecture, several innovative hardware appliances, and the purpose-built software for these products known as KEAOS — the Kaleidescape Entertainment Appliance Operating System.

"At the outset we realized the Internet would eventually be the delivery vehicle for movies. But we also realized that practical Internet delivery of high definition movies would be a long time coming, and shiny discs would need to suffice until then," says Malcolm. "After considerable study we discovered that with carefully designed hardware and software we could build a legal system that enables customers to copy their movies to hard disks for immediate playback anywhere in the home. This discovery led to the first Kaleidescape System which we introduced in 2003."
