Product Information

This Package Includes

Kaleidescape Strato S 12TB 4K Ultra HD Movie Player

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.

Cinematic 4K clarity with four times the detail of Full HD

SXRD panel technology featured in our professional cinema projectors delivers native 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution images, with no artificial pixel enhancement. Every detail is clear and natural, without jagged edges or visible pixels. 

Very high brightness and contrast

With an amazing 5,000 lumens brightness and infinite dynamic contrast range, 4K images are clear with bright highlights and rich, deep blacks – even in well-lit rooms. 

Wide color space for more natural colors

Sony's display technology covers the full DCI-P3 range and emulates ITU-R BT2020 to accurately reproduce a much broader range of colors than a standard projector system. You'll see the difference with finely-reproduced tones and textures plus greater color purity, depth and realism. 

HDR Compatible

Take full advantage of the latest content produced with HDR (High Dynamic Range) for extremely wide contrast with an even higher range of brightness levels.

Smooth, fluid on-screen action

Coupled with the panel's super-fast response rate, Motionflow technology means you’ll see every detail with minimal blur - no matter how fast the action, even with 4K signals. 

Support for latest standards

The VPL-VW5000ES can project content at up to 60 frames per second (fps) in 4K (at color signal YCbCr 4:4:4 8-bit or YcbCr 4:2:2 12-bit) for even smoother images with superior color and realism. Support for HDCP 2.2 lets you enjoy the latest 4K content services. 

Virtually maintenance-free operation

Laser-based light source provides up to 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operation for constant picture quality and reduced running costs. 

Reality Creation upscales movies to 4K

As well as projecting native 4K content, the VPL-VW5000ES upscales your Full HD Blu-ray or DVD movie collection to 4K with Reality Creation - Sony's Super Resolution processing technology that enhances lower-resolution content, and even upscales 3D movies to 4K resolution.

Compatible with ‘Mastered in 4K’ Blu-ray

Enjoy a near-native 4K experience with discs ‘Mastered in 4K’. It’s as close as you can get to the 4K-pixel resolution and expanded color range of the original. 

Picture position memories

Memorizes up to five zoom lens positions for future viewing. Stored settings can be matched to a movie’s aspect ratio, including 16:9 and Cinemascope. 

Flexible home installation with wide zoom and shift lens

The powered zoom lens with a wide zoom ratio and wide lens shift range gives greater installation flexibility in any room size, even with high ceilings. 

Built-in auto calibration

Maintaining original factory color calibration is quick and easy thanks to a built-in camera. 

Industry-standard RF 3D compatible

The projector's built-in RF transmitter synchronizes with any RF 3D glasses for wider coverage and greater stability, so there’s no need for an external transmitter. 

3-year limited warranty

All Sony Elevated Standard (ES) projectors enjoy 3-year limited warranties.
