There are many things to consider when building a home theater. In addition to addressing all the key elements for a comfortable, theater-like experience, there’s the media player to consider. If you are a connoisseur, you probably won’t settle for a streaming PC or a projector hooked up a smartphone; you will want an actual movie server like the Kaleidescape Terra 72 Terabyte Movie Server.
When combined with the brand’s Strato C movie player, the Kaleidescape Terra 72 Terabyte Movie Server offers lossless multi-channel audio and visually lossless 4K UHD video.
With 72 TB at your disposal, you can store up to 1,200 movies in 4K resolution. The server also affords downloading of a 4K movie in just 10 minutes, at up to 800 Mbps while allowing simultaneous distribution of up to ten 4K HDR movies to Strato C players. You practically can set up your cinema with this little big guy.
No worries if you do not have a source for 4K movies; Kaleidescape movie store has over 12,000 titles for your purchase or rent – some of which aren’t even available on Blu-ray.
There’s a catch though. The hardware is pricey. The Kaleidescape Terra 72 Terabyte Movie Server will run you back at a cool US$23,995. If you do not need such high capacity server, the Terra is also available in 24 TB and 48 TB models too.
