Upscale movie server company Kaleidescape Jan. 7 announced the launch of a new limited-edition Cinema One streaming media player preloaded with 50 personally selected movies.
The limited-edition Cinema One comes preloaded with $750 worth of critically acclaimed titles such as The Shawshank Redemption, the seven-time Academy Award winner Shakespeare in Love, and the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, as well as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1 and Part 2. Family-friendly films such as Happy Feet, all-time classics such as Casablanca, and the hit TV series “The Big Bang Theory” round out this assortment of movies and TV shows.
The promotion is available until the end of February. The $4,000 Cinema One streaming media player last month was named a 2014 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in the home audio/video components category. It claims to stream content in 1080p Blu-ray resolution quality.
“With Cinema One, we’ve been able to create a novel way to combine content, services, and a movie player into a single device. This puts Kaleidescape in a unique position to deliver the ultimate movie experience right out of the box,” CEO Tom Furlong said in a statement.
Furlong said Kaleidescape users import 200 movies within a few weeks of owning the system. The Cinema One player can be purchased at Magnolia Design Centers or directly from the Kaleidescape Store at store.kaleidescape.com (U.S. only).
