It’s hard to say what Kaleidescape does best.
As a movie server it has no competition. My collection is in excess of 1000 titles. I could never find the film I wanted to watch, or even knew if that film was in my collection. Then I found Kaleidescape. Now I can search for similar titles, or movies with the same actors in it. I can pick out a movie, and it starts in seconds, at the beginning, without previews, even for Blu-ray. Multiple movie players mean we can watch in several rooms at the same time, even different movies. The iPad app to control the system is truly a thing of beauty.
