Kaleidescape Continues to Innovate with Terra Prime 96TB Movie Server
Kaleidescape’s largest server is a movie collector’s dream

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA – April 2, 2024 – Kaleidescape, maker of the ultimate movie platform, today announced its largest capacity server – the new Terra Prime 96 terabyte (TB) movie server.

Kaleidescape’s Ultimate 4K System now includes two Terra Prime 96TB movie servers loaded with every 4K title available on the Kaleidescape movie store at the time of shipment.

Additionally, the company announced its Terra Prime 72TB movie server. The Terra Prime 96TB and 72TB servers replace the 88TB server.
“Kaleidescape continues to innovate, delivering hardware improvements and frequent automatic software updates, to enrich customers’ movie-watching experience,” said Tayloe Stansbury, chairman & CEO of Kaleidescape. “These new servers enable customers to build robust libraries encompassing movies, TV series, and concerts with lossless audio and full reference video.”

Terra Prime features an all-new board design with faster processing power and faster network, for faster movie downloads and overall system performance. Terra Prime is the only dedicated movie server with 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet. And Terra Prime servers are equipped with enterprise-class disk drives, the same drives chosen by data centers for performance and reliability.

Kaleidescape also offers a Disc-to-Digital program, to assist customers with transitioning their DVD and Blu-ray disc collections to digital on Kaleidescape. This provides an opportunity for disc collectors to enjoy the benefits of the Kaleidescape ecosystem without having to repurchase every movie at full price.

Kaleidescape Terra Prime HDD Movie Servers

Terra Prime HDD is a next-generation high-capacity movie server. It can download a Kaleidescape high-bitrate 4K movie in as little as eight minutes and serves up to five simultaneous playback zones (compact) or up to 10 simultaneous playback zones (full-size).

The full-size Terra Prime HDD 96TB stores approximately 1,600 Kaleidescape high-bitrate 4K movies, the 72TB stores roughly 1,200 Kaleidescape fidelity 4K movies, and the 48TB stores approximately 800 Kaleidescape fidelity 4K movies.

The compact Terra Prime HDD 22TB stores approximately 350 Kaleidescape fidelity 4K movies and the 8TB stores roughly 130 Kaleidescape high-bitrate 4K movies.

Kaleidescape Terra Prime SSD Movie Servers

Kaleidescape also offers Terra Prime Solid-State (SSD) models in 31TB and 8TB, ideal for marine and state-of-the-art installations that are enabled with 2.5 gigabit Ethernet or higher and require multiple playback zones.

...And then there's the pricing. I'm still hoping Kaleidescape will one day release a more affordable version of their admittedly excellent platform, embracing the time-proven "economies of scale" model.

Love the idea. My one demo left me very impressed. But the price just for a movie system…

If it where a tenth the price and also was best-of class streamer for a truly AIO home theater system, that would be the dream.

So I persist with my HTPC and also add to my MoviesAnywhere library. Best value compromise for me.

They must be doing OK if they’re still investing in R&D, but if the company went under, you’d lose access to the movies stored on your equipment, right?

I can imagine losing access to movies you don’t have downloaded. But why would you lose access to movies stored locally?

They’re explicitly marketing the product as the onboard movie system for luxury yachts to zillionaires. A use that presumably requires local storage without constant internet access.
