Premiere Disc-Based Product Line
While computer audio is becoming the norm, videophiles haven't had it so easy making the switch from physical media to hard drives and servers. The bandwidth required of Blu-ray, HDMI specifications and copyright laws make a true Blu-ray quality media server a logistical nightmare. You can stream from a host of services that are billed as HD, though admittedly are only p. If you want a true server for native Blu-ray content throughout your home, Kaleidescape is the only company that has managed to work through the legal mess to release such a system. The system is modular so you can always add on as your needs grow. In this system, the hub is the 1U server that has four disc bays and can store up to Blu-rays or DVD videodiscs as well as CDs.

Going back several years, I remember my first reaction to learning of the Kaleidescape paradigm. On paper, it looked like its principal novelty was ripping and playing back DVD movies without having to load a disc into a player. My cynicism lasted roughly two and a half to three seconds into actually using a Kaleidescape system. The library management and organization is a metadata-enriched, best-in-class experience. But power users can dig deeper and find movies by their favorite actors, directors, genres, and more. First, you have to understand that this is describing only a sliver of what the Kaleidescape system is and does. A single Kaleidescape Player connected to one display shows off the media-rich user interface.
Kaleidescape, the multi-room home movie server that Bruce Wayne would totally use if he had any time to watch movies, has tweaked its UI and added Blu-ray support with the M and M players. But there's a catch. Kaleidescape's new M player works just like their old ones : you load a disc—CD, DVD, or now Blu-ray—and the player copies it in pristine quality onto a home server. But movie studios, in their crusade to squelch piracy in all its forms, wrote a provision in the Blu-ray licensing agreement requiring the disc to be physically present whenever a copy of the movie is played. As such, to watch a copy of a Blu-ray movie on an M, or one of the satellite M players, the disc must be present in an M somewhere on your network. And still, it's nice to see a company standing tall against the studios and offering consumers some flexibility about how they watch the media they buy. Aside from that limitation, Kaleidescape's still a very rad, somewhat extravagant way to experience your library of media.
Kaleidescape and I go way back. The company recently launched two new M-class players, the M and M, which are capable of playing Blu-ray content and importing it to Kaleidescape servers. The new Profile 2. No, they are not 3D-capable. After years of waiting for Kaleidescape to support Blu-ray, I was eager to check one out. Kaleidescape greatly simplified installation for me by sending a fully racked, pre-built system. The only differences are that the Kaleidescape logo has been slightlychanged, and a single USB jack currently not used has been added to the back.
