If its high-reslolution you are after, the Strato family ups the ante to include playback of 4K UltraHD movies and concert videos. Strato plays movies without startup delays, buffering messages, or quality drops that are so common with streaming services. Strato supports lossless multichannel audio including Dolby Atmos, and bit-stream pass-through of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. The Strato onscreen user interface is also displayed in 4K Ultra HD, at 60 frames per second, resulting in fluid animation and a stunning visual impact.
Strato can be purchased with or without an internal 6TB hard drive that can store up to 100 4K Ultra HD movies, 200 Blu-ray quality movies, or 900 DVD quality movies. Strato equipped with internal movie storage can be used standalone or in a system with other Encore components. Strato with or without internal storage can play movies from any Terra movie server, from another Kaleidescape Strato or Alto with internal storage, or directly from a blu ray disc or dvd in a Kaleidescape Disc Server.
Introduced in late 2014, Alto is an all-new movie server that allows you to purchase, store and play back Blu-ray quality movies from the cloud. It has the same stunning easy-to-navigate user interface as the Premier Line, at Kaleidescape’s lowest price ever ($2500). It plays movies without previews, menus or ads, and jumps directly to memorable scenes in films thanks to Kaleidescape’s comprehensive Movie Guide.
Both the Strato & Alto movie players can download movies online directly from the Kaleidescape Store — no PC required! The Kaleidescape Store is the only online marketplace that offers movie downloads with the same audio/video fidelity as Blu-ray discs.
For the movie connoisseur with large existing collections, whether on DVD or Blu-ray, the Disc Vault makes importing and storing your collection a breeze. Simply insert your discs one at a time and the Disc Vault does the rest, importing all content to your Kaleidescape server for instant playback on all of your Kaleidescape movie players. Premiere systems can be configured to store up to 1,300 Blu-ray or 7,200 DVDs, satisfying the needs of the most demanding movie collectors.
Kaleidescape is not just for adults — in fact, the system was designed with children in mind. Using their special child remote control, explicit content is automatically filtered from view, displaying only what is appropriate for young children.
Consider another scenario — how many times have you opened one of your children’s DVDs, only to find that the disc is missing from the jacket? Almost every time, right? Once your movies are imported into the system, you no longer have to wonder where the missing disc is — all playback is initiated from the server, eliminating the need for physical discs(Note: Blu-ray discs must be present in the Disc Vault or Movie Player before playback can be initiated).
