Sunnyvale, Calif. - Networkable movie server resource Kaleidescape introduced Thursday its Cinema One out-of-the-box DVD movie server priced at under $5,000.
The system was designed as a hassle-free, instant viewing and management of an entire movie collection, and is expected to open the capability to a broader segment of customers,
The unit also includes the company's new Child Remote simplified remote and user interface to automatically assist young children in operating the system and selected content designated as appropriate by parents.
"Our dealers and customers have been asking for a simple-to-install Kaleidescape System," said Michael Malcolm, Kaleidescape chairman and CEO. "The Cinema One makes it possible for many more customers to enjoy the richness of the Kaleidescape experience."
Cinema One is a single component movie server capable of storing 225 DVDS or 2,500 CDs, designed for simple installation. It was said to be based on and replaces the Kaleidescape Mini System.
Key benefits include: instant viewing without the need to find and load discs; kid friendly operation; simple installation; two independent music zones, enabling a movie to be watched in one room while music is enjoyed in another area of the home; and easy expansion of storage with the addition of additional Kaleidescape players to the home network.
