Product Information

Kaleidescape Strato S combines all of the color and crisp details 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 theaters. Strato S plays downloaded 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 Kaleidescape Alto or Strato Movie Player. Strato S plays downloaded Blu-ray and DVD quality movies in 4K using advanced upscaling algorithms.

Strato 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 Strato S 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, Blu-ray quality movies, and DVD quality titles.

Strato S 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.

The Kaleidescape Movie Store is the world’s only source for movies with full-fidelity audio and video to match the capabilities of luxury home cinema equipment. The movie store offers a library of the finest content from Hollywood’s major movie studios, ranging from new releases to the gems from the past 100 years. The Kaleidescape Movie Store offers the best selection of 4K Ultra HD titles with high dynamic range support, and thousands of movies in full Blu-ray HD quality. These Blu-ray quality movies provide superb results when upscaled to 4K by the Strato. Both Blu-ray quality and 4K Ultra HD movies are available with lossless multichannel and object-based audio, including Dolby Atmos.
