Kaleido R7’s innovative hinge allows you to rotate and tilt the screen to adjust the viewing orientation and angle for your photos. The EyeStage™ software has a display option that allows you to rotate the image according to the EXIF data, which will then allow the photos to be automatically rotated to the correct orientation when this setting is active.
After upgrading the firmware, please do not remove the USB flash device or memory card until the prompt “Firmware upgrade complete” is shown. After this, you can simply press the power button to switch the device off. To restart Kaleido R7, just press the power button again.
Errors during Syncing are usually caused by photos or files stored in memory that are corrupted or damaged. If you have selected the Sync location to be Kaleido R7’s internal memory, please format the internal memory of the device.
Select Settings > Format Internal Memory, and all the contents and settings will be reset. You can proceed to Sync all the photos again after reformatting the internal memory.
Please ensure that Kaleido R7 and the computer on which EyeStage™ is installed are connected to the same network. Make sure that you are running the EyeStage™ software on your PC or Mac.
Please go to Kaleido R7 > Settings > Pair EyeStage™ > Pairing, and EyeStage™ > Pair > Pairing playback device separately. If you are still unable to pair the devices correctly, try restarting both Kaleido R7 and EyeStage™.
When the network connection is unstable or the servers from websites such as Flickr or Picasa are unable to respond very quickly, EyeStage™ will automatically skip to the next channel to avoid long delays.
Every channel subscribed using EyeStage™ can be displayed in different user-selected Modes. In general, photo related channels will have four modes for the user to select from.
In the context of RSS, if you select “Photo RSS,” then EyeStage™ will treat this channel as a normal photo channel with four user-selectable viewing modes optimized for photo viewing.
For “News RSS,” EyeStage™ will determine, based on the content of the RSS feed, a layout that is most suitable for the display of the information. As such, there will not be any user-selectable viewing modes in News RSS.
USB A port (main controller) allows Kaleido R7 to display photos from USB flash drives or USB card readers. USB mini B port (connector) directly links Kaleido R7 with the computer, which will detect the Kaleido R7 as a Mass Storage Device so you can directly access photos without the installation of any software. You will need to purchase a USB connector cable (Type A-B) separately if you want to make use of the mini-USB port on Kaleido R7.
When using certain image-editing software (e.g. Photoshop) to process photos, please remember that when you save the image as a JPEG file, some programs will provide an option of saving the image as a standard or advanced file type. Please choose the standard format, as Kaleido R7 does not currently support the progressive format of JPEG.
The power switch located on the side is suitable for turning the device off during long periods of non-usage. On the other hand, when you only need to temporarily pause the playback or operation of Kaleido R7, it is possible to simply press the standby button on the touch panel. This helps to extend the screen monitor's lifespan, and it also saves time on waiting when the device is restarting after powering off.
From EyeStage, go to Device > Kaleido and delete the channels in My Gallery.
Reformat Kaleido internal memory by using the Settings > Reformat Internal Memory menu. Please note that this will not only reformat Kaleido’s built-in internal memory but also delete all the settings and configurations.
The infrared receiver located at the top left of the Kaleido monitor has an effective range of 10 meters. It receives signals from a vertical angle of up to 80 degress and a horizontal angle of up to 150 degrees. To achieve the best signal reception, we recommend pointing the remote controller directly at the infrared receiver.
When you use a USB connector cable to link Kaleido R7 to your computer, the device will be seen as a Mass Storage Device. As a result, you will only be able to access the information stored in the internal memory without being able to operate the device or access its complete features or functions.
Kaleido cannot display photos in the Progressive JPEG format. Please make sure all the photos are in standard, non-progressive JPEG format. For complete technical specifications, refer to the spec sheet.
