Kaleidescape introduces Cinema One
The leader in home video library storage, Kaleidescape has just announced their very first mass-market all-in-one movie server. The Cinema One stores up to 600 DVD-quality or 100-Blu-ray quality movies with zero compression to provide the full DVD or BD experience more quickly and easily. Along with DVD and BD storage, the Cinema One is fully integrated with the Kaleidescape Store for full DVD or BD quality downloads.
Priced at just under $4,000, the Cinema One offers the Kaleidescape Experience of much more costly server systems in a simple-to-install, easy-to-use package. It is so easy to use Kaleidescape is offering the new Cinema line server direct to the consumer on their website.
The existing Kaleidescape System is becoming the Premiere line and will be sold only through electronic system contractors. The Cinema line will not integrate with the Premiere line.
Two Cinema One servers can be used in the same network to double the storage and provide a second zone of playback. This is limited to two Cinema One servers.
The Kaleidescape Store will allow full downloads of Blu-ray Disc movies, including all bonus content and menus, but physical Blu-ray Discs you may own will have to be in the player while viewing stored content. The integrated BD player can start movies instantly without the FBI warning, previews and ads, just like stored content. The Cinema One can be linked with a Kaleidescape DV700 Disc Vault to allow storage of your BD movies so you don’t have to put it in the player every time you want to watch it. A bundle of a Cinema One server and a DV700 Disc Vault is available for $7,990.
The Cinema One uses the same award-winning control interface and commands as the Premiere line, including the iPad app and the Child Remote.
