Default Kaleidescape Cinema One Blu-ray Player/Server

It is too bad Kaleidescape does not support 3-D Blu-ray images, just 2-D Blu-ray images for now. The Cinema One $3,995 price is more attractive to mainstream consumers when compared to the higher-end Premiere model for $15,000.

The Kaleidescape system would be ideal for renting Blu-ray images for download, hopefully in the future they will offer a Blu-ray download rental model. Currently the Blu-ray disc images are purchased online for a lifetime ownership and with a high speed Internet connection downloaded to a hard drive.

The downloaded 50GB Blu-ray picture and sound quality is bit for bit exactly the same as the physical disc.


“A basic, single-zone server from Kaleidescape’s Premiere line can store up to 150 BDs or 900 DVDs and will set you back around $15,000. Kaleidescape’s Cinema One stores up to 100 BDs or 600 DVD-quality movies (or 6,000 CDs), yet it’s only $3,995.”

Still, compared to a HTPC, priced way out of my range.
Keep Physical Media Alive, Just say NO to digital "ownership"
