Cinema One

Cinema One stores up to 600 DVD or 100 Blu-ray quality movies and goes from zero to opening scene faster than any Blu-ray player in the world—without warnings, previews, menus, or ads.

Unlike streaming services, Cinema One lets you enjoy all of your movies in true bit-for-bit Blu-ray and DVD quality—whether imported from CD, DVD, or Blu-ray, or downloaded from the Kaleidescape Store.

Designed in collaboration with Whipsaw, Cinema One deliberately rejects the austere black box aesthetic.

Wrapped in a sleek aluminum-finished case, it features a white faceplate, on which the backlit Kaleidescape logo animates when the system is turned on and when music is playing. Status indicators and control buttons glow from within only when active.

Originally intended to be constructed with a large aluminum extrusion, this approach did not meet aesthetic and cost targets. The design intent was maintained with an injection-molded plastic cover that simulates the look of extruded aluminum construction.
