Kaleidescape has added two upgraded offerings to its movie player family, announcing the release of the new Kaleidescape compact Terra 22 terabyte (TB) movie server, replacing its compact Terra 18TB, and the new Terra 88TB movie server, replacing its Terra 72TB server. The new products for videophile customers are now available from Kaleidescape’s dealer network.
“Kaleidescape is committed to acting on customer feedback, streamlining our product line to meet our wide range of customer needs in the 4K UHD era while maintaining the unrivaled quality, faster download speeds, and seamless playback experience that define Kaleidescape,” says Tayloe Stansbury, CEO, Kaleidescape.
“This new server lineup offers five different storage capacities, spaced roughly a factor of two apart from each other.”
Customers can now choose from the compact Terra 6TB, compact Terra 12TB, compact Terra 22TB or the larger Terra 48TB and Terra 88TB. This sequencing provides efficient options for those who want storage flexibility on a smaller scale, or for those with larger collections looking to expand as more 4K UHD titles become available, the company explains.
Kaleidescape adds that both the Terra and compact Terra lines can download a UHD 4K movie in as quick as 10 minutes.
More 4K UHD Content to Store & Serve on New Kaleidescape Terra Models
The Terra 88TB can store nearly 1,500 high-fidelity 4K UHD movies, serve up to 10 simultaneous 4K UHD playbacks, and enables fast downloads while simultaneously supporting playback on multiple Strato players.
Kaleidescape says the Terra 88TB movie server stores high-fidelity content on enterprise-class hard drives and is designed to continue operating on the rare occasion of a hard drive failure. If a failed hard dive needs to be replaced, movies are automatically restored from the cloud.
The compact Terra 22TB can store over 350 4K UHD movies or over 650 movies with a mix of 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD-quality titles, and serve up to five simultaneous 4K UHD playbacks.
The compact Terra allows customers the flexibility to add playback zones and grow their movie collection over time as up to four compact Terra servers can be combined in a single system for more storage, the company notes.
In terms of content, customers can load up on a vast selection of the highest-quality video. The Kaleidescape movie store boasts nearly 14,000 4K UHD titles for purchase and more than 9,000 for rent.
Users can rent or download movies in reference-quality 4K HDR with lossless Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio. In addition, Kaleidescape offers over 700 4K UHD titles not available on Blu-ray Disc.
The Kaleidescape compact Terra 22TB movie server will be priced at $10,995 and the Terra 88TB will be $25,995. Accompanying Strato C players are $3,995 each.
