Content Remains Key to the Home Theater Experience
RAYVA theaters are pre-engineered with best-in-class components from world-class brands, and are designed to entertain and enrich the lives of RAYVA customers. From the beginning, RAYVA’s founders understood that content would be key to ensuring the success of the home theaters, enabling customers to use the purpose-built private cinemas as the primary screen in their home, and visiting the room again and again to enjoy sports, documentaries, concerts, and of course, classic and new movies, including recent theatrical releases.

Theater designer and RAYVA partner Theo Kalomirakis has embraced the concept of digital delivery and is delighted to now be able to offer this option to RAYVA customers. “I used to have walls and walls of DVDs lining my apartment, stretching from floor to ceiling. Accessing favorite old movies was a chore I did only infrequently. Through the Kaleidescape server, I can now re-visit favorite worlds with a few clicks and be transported to magical movie landscapes in seconds.
