Kaleidescape has unveiled its latest movie server called the Cinema One. The device is an out of the box DVD movie server that is designed to be easy to use and hassle free. The device has a cool child mode that switches to an easy to use interface for kids when the child remote is used. That is a nice feature for parents of kids that like to do things themselves.
The server box uses four 500GB mini disc cartridges that has enough storage space for storing 225 DVD movies and offers RAID-K parity for data protection. Multiple Cinema One devices can be grouped for more storage space if needed. The device has HDMI, component, S-Video, and composite video output and digital coaxial, optical, and analog stereo audio outputs.
It supports Dolby Digital Sound, DTS Digital Surround, and MPEG Audio. Supported resolutions include 1080p60/50, 1080i, 720p, 576p, 576i, 480p, and 480i. The device supports all sorts of CD formats and DVD formats for recordable media. The Cinema One is far from cheap with a MSRP of $4,995.
