Remember Kaleidescape? That's the company that attempted to give high-end cinema lovers the ability to digitize all of their DVDs and Blu-ray Discs, and clearly, enough of those folks exist to keep it afloat. While niche by nature, it's tough to knock the cool factor here, and the home movie server outfit is now bringing its high-end home theater experience to a broader audience with the all-new Cinema One. It's the company's first product designed for retail distribution, which could see its products fit into the lives of a far wider crowd. Cinema One lets consumers store and instantly access...

Robots have found their way into all sorts of things: hospitals, cars, the list goes on and on. And now, robots are finding their way into even stranger places, like disc loaders. The Kaleidescape Value is the company's newest product, and it automatically imports CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs into a main server in order to easily digitize things for playback.

That's why the company can charge whatever they want for it. High resolution cover art combined with a brief synopsis of each film and many... Read more...
Kaleidescape is not a company name that goes hand-in-hand with "inexpensive." It's a company that caters towards high-end home cinema owners who would like to place their entire film and content collection on a hard drive, versus having to sort out discs. It's one of the few factory systems that can rip DVDs and store them with full metadata for easy browsing on a home theater setup. But in the past, these systems have costs tens of thousands of dollars, making them very impractical for all but the most affluent of content consumers. The company's latest product, the Cinema One, is the first step... Read more...
It's a feature that consumers have been asking for, and Kaleidescape has finally obliged: Blu-ray support has been added to the company's movie servers. Granted, Kaleidescape servers can only be afforded by the most affluent among us, but hardcore movie lovers have been begging for BD support since the format war ended years back. If you're unfamiliar with the company, they basically sell sleek HDD racks and front-end UIs that allow you to catalog your movie collection into a huge hard drive array, so you'll never need the DVD disc again. There's a great UI and search engine, which pulls down metadata... Read more...
