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 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 a Strato S movie player. Strato C also plays HD and SD digital 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 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 S movie player.

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 UHD titles with HDR. Movies are available with lossless multichannel and object-based audio, including Dolby True HD Atmos and DTS:X.
