M500 MOVIE PLAYER

The M-Class architecture is a powerful platform for the onscreen user interface and for playing Blu-Ray quality content.

The Kaleidescape M500 Player’s elegant onscreen user interface presents your collection of movies and music with eye-popping detail and beautiful cover art. The exclusive Kaleidescape Movie Guide provides cover art, synopses, and details like actors, directors, genres, and ratings. Songs on concert films are indexed for easy access. Movies start instantly, without advertisements, trailers or menus. The M500 Player also copies your Blu-ray discs and CDs onto your Kaleidescape server.

The M500 Player is based on Kaleidescape’s M-Class architecture, a powerful platform for the onscreen user interface and for playing Blu-ray quality content. Blu-ray quality movies are played in high-definition video with lossless audio, including support for 1080p video with 24 frames per second, and bitstream pass-through of Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, and DTS-HD Master Audio.

An M500 Player plays movies and music stored on your Kaleidescape server. It can also play Blu-ray discs, DVDs, and CDs using the built-in optical disc drive. For playback of imported Blu-ray discs, the physical disc must be present in one of your M500 Players or a Kaleidescape Disc Vault. Protected DVDs may not be imported, but may be played using the built-in optical disc drive or from a Kaleidescape Disc Vault
