The Kaleidescape has released a new box that may be the first high-end movie server called the Cinema One. The set top box will be available starting today at the Best Buy Magnolia design center and at kaleidescape.com. The Cinema One has a built-in 4TB hard drive that can store around 100 Blu-ray quality movies or around 600 DVDs.
The retail price of the Cinema One is $3,995. The Cinema One can be easily fit into an existing home theater setup. It cannot be integrated into the Kaleidescape Premiere Line of server systems though.
To playback Blu-ray movies, the Cinema One does not have access to the physical Blu-ray, so you will need to buy a digital copy from the Blu-ray from the the Kaleidescape Store. The player is compatible with the company’s $5,495 DV700 Disc Vault, which can store up to 320 discs.
