Kaleidescape Reveals New M700 Disc Vault
Kaleidescape's New M700 Disc Vault has arrived. The product, the company said, was designed from the ground up to simplify and accelerate the process of adding movies and music to a Kaleidescape System.
The M700 Disc Vault’s precision carousel can hold up to 320 discs, where their contents are quickly copied onto the Kaleidescape System. This process is fully automated and requires no additional work on the part of the user.
“With the M700 Disc Vault we've taken it a step further providing our customers with an even greater cinematic experience," director of product marketing, Linus Wong said as part of the announcement. "We're helping our customers to build their collections in an even more profound and personal way. We have freed the content from the confines of the physical disc, so you can enjoy your content anyway you want, by moving content freely around. This is true customization at its finest.”
The M700 Disc Vault also simplifies system installation. “With the M700 Disc Vault we are able to streamline the installation and loading of our customers’ Kaleidescape Systems like never before," Craig Abplanalp of Definitive Audio in Bellevue, Wash. said. "We can now quickly load the customers’ Blu-ray Discs and DVDs onsite, or preload a Kaleidescape Movie Collection in our facility and ship the finished rack ready to roll. All that’s left to do is power up the system when it arrives.”
The M700 Disc Vault is available immediately at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $5,995 in the United States and Canada. Paired with a 1U Server, the M700 Disc Vault comprises a complete Blu-ray movie server at $15,990.
