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. It's classified as a robotic loader, and the M700 Disc Value is now available.


It's designed to simplify and accelerate the process of adding movies and music to a Kaleidescape System. Up to 320 discs can be loaded into the M700 Disc Vault's precision carousel, where their contents are quickly copied onto the Kaleidescape System. This process is fully automated and requires no additional work on the part of the user. Once copied, a Blu-ray Disc must remain in the disc vault to enable playback of the digital copy from the server. DVDs and CDs may either be ejected or left in the M700 Disc Vault for safe storage and easy accessibility. The M700 Disc Vault makes it easier than ever to build and enjoy a personal movie collection.


As with other Kaleidescape products, this one comes with a huge price premium. The M700 Disc Vault is available immediately at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $5,995 in the United States and Canada. Paired with a 1U Server, the M700 Disc Vault comprises a complete Blu-ray movie server at $15,990. Yikes!

I'll buy one of these for each room in the house, just as soon as I win the Power-ball lottery.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

"I like the idea oh having my movies stored digitally in a server and having a player in each room that can access it at anytime and also simultaneously, This model is not the one for consideration, I but I did click the link to their site and they do offer it. Like Neil, if I ever win the Lotto, I would buy it also."
