Kaleidescape Cinema One Blu-ray Movie Server

Kaleidescape Cinema One Blu-ray Player

Kaleidescape just introduced the Cinema One, an all-in-one DVD/Blu-ray player and movie server that allows instant access to 100 Blu-ray or 600 DVD-quality movies. The beauty of the component is in the simplicity of its user interface, which allows users to browse through their entire movie library in a nice graphical interface. There is no need to worry about manually entering in movie titles, because the Cinema One stores and automatically catalogs your movies and music on a hard disk drive for easy access and playback.

The Kaleidescape Experience is powered by the company’s comprehensive Movie Guide, which contains nearly a quarter million titles. Movies are presented with gorgeous high-resolution cover art and a short synopsis. As viewers browse their collection, the onscreen user interface highlights similar films based on genre, director, actors and more. Kaleidescape experts have handpicked thousands of the most memorable scenes in films, concerts and musicals so viewers can jump directly to the best parts of their favorite movies.

Kaleidescape Introduces Cinema One On-screen Menu

Cinema One connects to any home automation system. So when you press Play, the lights go down, the masking is set, and the movie starts instantly, creating a truly theatrical movie experience. And with the unique CinemaScapevideo-processing mode, Cinema One is the best source device available for a 2.35 home theater.

A second Cinema One can be added to double the storage capacity and enable viewing of the combined library on a second television. And a three-year standard limited warranty ensures customers can enjoy their movies worry-free.

Kaleidescape Introduces Cinema One Back

With Cinema One, viewers can download movies directly from the Kaleidescape Store—the only store that offers movie downloads with the same audio/video fidelity of Blu-ray discs. Downloads include all special features, audio tracks and extra content otherwise available only on the physical disc.

“Today, Blu-ray discs are the reference standard for the discerning viewer, but they’re not as convenient as streaming,” said Doug Blackburn of Widescreen Review. “The Kaleidescape Store is currently the only way to download movies with precisely the same audio/video fidelity as Blu-ray. With Cinema One, anyone looking for the ultimate home theater experience without the inconvenience of physical discs will find Kaleidescape to be the best possible option for a theater system that will impress the owner, family and friends.”
