Kaleidescape's movie server awarded 2014 CES gong

Leading movie server supplier Kaleidescape's Cinema One has been named a 2014 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in the Home Audio/Video Components category for "its ability to deliver the same great theater experience in an easy-to-use and simple-to-install movie player."

Unlike streaming services, Cinema One lets viewers watch their movies in bit-for-bit Blu-ray and DVD quality - whether imported from CD, DVD, or Blu-ray disc, or downloaded from the Kaleidescape Store.

Cinema One can store and play up to 600 DVD or 100 Blu-ray movies and goes from zero to opening scene faster than any Blu-ray player on the market. The device also knows exactly where a feature film starts so viewers go straight to the picture, bypassing previews, menus, or ads. The movie server has also been designed to meet the needs of young children by automatically switching to a simplified user interface with a specially designed child remote.
