Kaleidescape Introduces $3,995 Movie Server
The company’s Movie Guide interface, which covers upwards of 250,000 movie titles, makes it easy to browse hundreds of movies and provides an enhanced experience by letting viewers watch movies without previews, menus, and ads, according to Kaleidescape. As you browse your collection, movies are presented with high-resolution cover art and a short synopsis and the onscreen interface highlights similar films based on genre, director, actors, and more. Kaleidescape experts have also handpicked thousands of memorable scenes in films, concerts and musicals so viewers can jump directly to the best parts of favorite movies.
High-definition movies can be downloaded directly from the Kaleidescape Store with all of the special features, audio tracks and extra content you get on a Blu-ray disc. A second Cinema One server can be added to double the storage capacity and enable viewing of the movie library on a second television.
The server can also be linked to a home-automation system and set up for one-button home theater scenarios where pressing Play, for example, automatcially dims the lights and starts playback. Other highlights include a CinemaScape video-processing mode for viewing 2.35:1 widescreen movies.
The Cinema One server is covered by a three-year limited warranty and available on kaleidescape.com as well as through retailers, including Magnolia Design Centers.
