We are pleased to announce the new Kaleidescape 1U+ Movie Server. This new movie server for Premiere systems is available with either 18TB or 30TB of storage capacity. The 30TB model can store up to 800 Blu-ray movies.
The 1U+ Movie Server is a follow-on to the Kaleidescape 1U Server which is the workhorse for most Kaleidescape systems worldwide. The 1U+ Movie Server provides higher performance and better reliability, due to a substantial redesign. Its new power supply promises to significantly increase MTBF over that of the 1U Server. We retained the 1U Server’s industrial engineering (appearance, electrical connectors, user interface) because it is a proven design, and because this allows the 1U+ Movie Server to fit seamlessly into an existing system when adding or replacing a server.
Our proprietary kOS operating system enables the 1U+ Movie Server to provide computing and caching services, in addition to storing and serving movies. This improves the performance of movie players while browsing and searching, especially for a large collection of movies. kOS enables the 1U+ Movie Server to meet the content protection requirements of the motion picture studios, and it provides Kaleidescape’s proprietary RAID-K data protection that enables the server to continue operating after a hard drive has failed, without losing any data.
Premiere systems are found in many of the world’s finest homes, yachts, and private aircraft. They are renowned for reliability, and for delivering the best cinematic experience from a large collection of Blu-ray, DVD, and CD discs. Premiere systems can also download movies from the Kaleidescape Movie Store.
The new 1U+ Movie Server is shipping now.
