If you have a massive collection of CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Ray discs that you’d like to have automatically stored and archived for easy access, then you might consider a robotic disc loader like the new Kaleidescape M700 Disc Vault. The M700 Disc Vault is a movie server that swallows your discs into a precision carousel, copies the content onto the Kaleidescape System, and easily plays back what you want when you want it—no more wasting time rummaging through your collection.
It can physically store up to 320 CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Ray Discs. You simply insert a disc and it will automatically copy its content to the Kaleidescape System. After the M700 is finished copying, you can eject the CDs and DVDs from the vault to store elsewhere or leave them inside. Their digital copies can be played back even with the original discs removed. But for Blu-Ray Discs, you must store the discs inside the M700 inorder to playback the content.
There is a front display panel that indicates the import progress, number of discs stored, and the number of available slots. There are also buttons that let you eject all CDs, all DVDs, all Blu-Rays, or all discs. Multiple M700 Disc Vaults can work with the Kaleidescape system such that you can store thousands of CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Ray Discs. And, the integrated Kaleidescape M-Class Player provides pristine playback of the content stored.
However, all this convenience does come with a hefty price and is geared for the more serious home theater enthusiast with deep pockets. The M700 Disc Vault retails for $5,995 and when paired with a 1U Server for a complete Blu-Ray movie server, it will cost you $15,990. Visit the product page for more info.
