Cinema One is a home movie server that stores up to 600 DVD or 100 Blu-ray movies and plays them in the highest audio and video quality possible Ð without previews, menus or ads. Browse your own collection in a handsome interface or be inspired by movies presented by genre, director or actor, or download Hi-def movies, featuring the same audio/video fidelity as Blu-ray, from the Kaleidescape Store.

  • The great Kaleidescape movie experience, previously limited to high-end custom home installations, is now available in an easy-to-use, low cost all-in-one movie server - which makes it available to a much bigger market. Gone are the days of digging through stacks of DVD cases for that perfect movie night. The Cinema One experience combines hardware, software and services into nothing less than cinematic brilliance. If you are a movie aficionado, this product is a "must have", in part because of the design.

  • Cinema One is contemporary and gorgeous. It is light, clean and crisp - adjectives that home theater aficionados love. It features a flat white face that rolls under elegantly to admit air for machine cooling. The white face is surrounded by a sharp silver frame housing, creating a very unique corner shape.

  • Cinema One is a breeze to use because we employed a "less is more" control strategy. Three flush control buttons reside on the front right and additional invisible icons only light up when needed. Two Cinema One players may be linked together to double the available storage and combine their contents into a single library that can be enjoyed in both rooms. Pause a movie in your family room and resume it later (even days later) in your bedroom, exactly where you left off. Friendly ease of use is a key selling point of Cinema One.
