Kaleidescape M500 Player - KPLAYER-M500-A

Product Details

Kaleidescape M500 Player, Model KPLAYERM500A

The 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. Press “Play,” sit back, and enjoy the feature — even for Blu-ray. The M500 also copies your Blu-ray Discs, DVDs and CDs onto your Kaleidescape server. The M500 Player is based on Kaleidescape M-Class architecture, a powerful platform for the onscreen user interface and for playing Blu-ray content. Blu-ray 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 and DTS-HD Master Audio. An M500 Player can play directly from a Blu-ray Disc, DVD or CD or from the copy stored on your server. For Blu-ray, playback must be enabled by the presence of the physical disc in one of your M500 Players or a Kaleidescape disc vault.
