Kaleidescape has introduced the Cinema One targeted at the mid range high-performance home entertainment equipment enthusiast.  The Cinema One is priced at $3,995 price, almost $10,000 less than the starting price on the previous server.  It is roughly the size of a standard DVR.


The Cinema One includes enough onboard storage capacity to hold 100 Blu-ray or 600 DVD-quality movies transferred from optical discs to the onboard hard drive without removing or altering embedded copy protection. The unit will also access Kaleidescape’s recently launched movie-download service that delivers Blu-ray-quality movies to customer’s hard drives over a broadband Internet connection.


The Cinema One will be distributed through Magnolia Design Centers, direct through Kaleidescape’s online store, and through the company’s network of more than 1,800 A/V specialty dealers worldwide.


I'm wondering if 100 Blu-ray discs is really enough to make this attractive?  Has anyone seen their movie-download service that delivers "Blu-ray quality" movies?

Their movie service is also Ultraviolet compatible.

I've played with earlier versions and a few of the theatres I've designed, the owners ended up with one.Is there a better and less expensive version of this out there? Sure.But can Grandma use it when babysitting the grandkids? Well, the Kaleiescapes she can...
