All Media Servers
2014 Product of the Year WinnerKaleidescape Cinema One
Cinema One combines pristine picture quality with high-fidelity sound to transform any living room into the ultimate home theater. Unlike streaming services, Cinema One lets viewers enjoy all of their movies in true 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 quality movies and goes from zero to opening scene faster than any Blu-ray player on the market. In fact, Kaleidescape knows exactly where each feature film begins, and takes viewers straight to the start of a feature film —with no delays from previews, menus, or ads. And as the only movie system to support Blu-ray quality movie downloads, Cinema One delivers amazing convenience without any compromise in quality. This family-friendly 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.
