Kaleidescape designed the Strato movie player to provide an immersive home cinema experience, with better audio and video playback quality than most commercial theaters.
Unlike streaming services, each movie is downloaded and stored on a hard drive, on the Strato movie player. Strato plays downloaded movies in stunning 4K Ultra HD at up to 100 Mbps and 60 frames per second, without the startup delays, buffering messages, or quality drops that are so common with streaming services. Strato plays downloaded
Bluray and DVD quality movies in 4K using advanced up-scaling algorithms.
Strato supports lossless multichannel audio, and is capable of playing HDR content on televisions and projectors that can process open standard 10-bit HDMI® 2.0a HDR. The Strato onscreen user interface is also displayed in full 4K Ultra HD, at 60 frames per second, resulting in fluid animation and a stunning visual impact.
Strato can be equipped with an internal 6TB, 8TB or 10TB hard drive that can store up to 180 4K Ultra HD movies, 330 Blu-ray quality movies, or 1500 DVD quality movies. Strato can be used standalone or in a system with other Encore components, playing back from Terra movie servers or from other Kaleidescape Strato or Alto movie players with internal storage. Movies start immediately, without trailers or warnings, and you can jump right to your favorite scenes and songs, without fast forwarding.
