Even though I live with a Kaleidescape movie server and use the system almost every day, it really isn’t until I demo the system to guests at my house or to prospective Kaleidescape buyers at my showroom that I really remember how the other half lives (ie: watches movies.)

One things I saw at CEDIA EXPO was that major automation companies were talking about ways to make programming systems a far simpler affair. So simple, in fact, that many will include letting end users make system changes like creating lighting and shading scenes or time-of-day events that heretofore would have required some serious brain power and proprietary software to pull off.

If you have a showroom–or a work vehicle–you probably take for granted what it looks like.
