Kaleidescape Strato C

KALEIDESCAPE STRATO C COMBINES ALL OF THE COLOR & CRISP DETAIL OF TRUE 4K ULTRA HD & HDR WITH STUNNING SOUND & THE CONVENIENCE OF INTERNET DELIVERY

Kaleidescape designed the Strato C movie player to provide an immersive home cinema experience, with better audio and video playback quality than most commercial theaters.

Strato C plays downloaded movies in stunning 4K Ultra HD at up to 100 Mbps and 60 frames per second, without any startup delay. Unlike streaming services, each movie is downloaded and stored on a hard drive, on either a Kaleidescape Terra movie server or another movie player. Strato C plays downloaded Blu-ray and DVD quality movies in 4K using advanced upscaling algorithms.

Strato C supports lossless multichannel audio and plays high dynamic range movies on televisions and projectors that can process open standard 10-bit HDMI 2.0a HDR. The Strato onscreen user interface is displayed in full 4K Ultra HD at 60 frames per second, resulting in fluid animation and a stunning visual impact.

Strato C plays 4K Ultra HD movies from a Terra movie server, or a Strato movie player. You can start the movie instantly, or you can jump right to your favorite scene or song.
