Kaleidescape introduces the industry's first Blu-ray Movie Server

Kaleidescape, Inc., creator of the movie server product category, today announced shipment of the industry's first Blu-ray movie server. The Kaleidescape System stores exact copies of the Blu-ray Discs on its hard drives.

The Kaleidescape Movie Guide provides high resolution cover art combined with a brief synopsis of each film and many other details on the user’s collection of movies. Video bookmarks and triggers enable the system to start a movie instantly, and automatically adjust lighting, curtains and screen masking during playback. With over 145,000 titles, Kaleidescape's exclusive Movie Guide is the largest database of its kind.

The new Kaleidescape Modular Disc Vault completes the Kaleidescape Blu-ray movie server. Paired with a Kaleidescape M-Class player, the disc vault imports, houses, and organizes the BD discs. With a capacity of 100 discs, the Modular Disc Vault simplifies ownership by automating the import process. Any number of Modular Disc Vaults may be added to a system, but each must be connected to its own M-Class player.

The Modular Disc Vault is priced at $1,495 in North America. The M500 Player and M300 Player have been shipping since May 2010 and are priced at $3,995 and $2,495. Any Kaleidescape System can be upgraded to be a Blu-ray movie server with the addition of an M-Class player and a Modular Disc Vault.
