Movies from Kaleidescape are different. Unlike streamed content, the movies are prepared and delivered for an uncompromised home cinema experience.
We begin with the authoritative mezzanine video file from the studio. Using proprietary methods, we process the file using minimal compression to preserve fidelity, while adding soundtracks, subtitles, and extensive proprietary metadata to take full advantage of the Kaleidescape movie player and the other components in your home cinema.
Strato S has an internal hard drive with the capacity to store either 6TB or 12TB of movies. Typically, the 12TB version will store approximately 300 movies. The Strato S can be used on its own, or in a system with other Strato or Terra components. The Strato S plays movies from its internal hard drive, from a Terra movie server, or from another Strato S movie player.
Strato C is a compact Strato without internal storage. The Strato C plays movies from a Terra movie server, or from a Strato S movie player.
The Terra movie server stores up to 40TB of movies and serves them to any number of Strato players in the home network. Terra also provides computing and caching services that enhance player performance. Up to ten Strato players can play 4K movies simultaneously from a single Terra movie server. A system may contain any number of Terra movie servers.
