Kaleidescape Strato S Movie Player

The Strato S is a movie player and server in one. With pristine picture quality and lossless audio, the Kaleidescape Strato S is the perfect entry-level player for any home cinema.

The Kaleidescape Strato S combines all of the colour and crisp detail of true 4K Ultra HD and HDR with stunning sound and the convenience of internet delivery. Kaleidescape designed the Strato S movie player to provide an immersive home cinema experience, with better audio and video playback quality than most commercial theatres.

The Strato S plays 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 its internal hard drive. Strato S also plays HD and SD digital movies in 4K using advanced upscaling algorithms. The Kaleidescape Stato S 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 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 S has a 12TB hard drive that can store 180 to 360 movies with a typical mix of 4K Ultra HD, HD, and SD titles.

The Strato’s on-screen display provides access to the Kaleidescape movie store, the world’s only online source for movies with full-fidelity audio and video. The movie store offers a library of the finest content from Hollywood’s major movie studios and the largest selection of 4K Ultra HD titles with high dynamic range. Both Blu-ray quality HD and 4K Ultra HD movies are available with lossless multichannel and object-based audio, including Dolby Atmos.
