Kaleidescape designed the Alto movie player to provide an immersive home-cinema experience, with audio and video playback quality very close to that of commercial theaters.
Unlike streaming services, each movie is downloaded and stored on a hard drive, either on a Kaleidescape Terra movie server, or a Kaleidescape Alto or Strato movie player. Alto plays downloaded movies in stunning Blu-ray quality, at up to 48 Mpbs and 60 frames per second, without the startup delays, buffering messages, or quality drops that are so common with streaming services.
Alto supports bitstream pass-through of Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio multichannel soundtracks. The Alto onscreen user interface is displayed in full 1080p HD at up to 30 frames per second.
Alto can be purchased with or without an internal 6TB hard drive that can store up to 200 Blu-ray quality movies, or 900 DVD quality movies. Alto equipped with an internal hard drive can be used standalone or in a system comprised of other Encore components. The Alto without internal storage plays back from its disc slot, from a Kaleidescape Terra movie server, from another Alto or Strato player with internal storage, or from a Kaleidescape Disc Server.
Alto lets users convert a physical disc into a digital download, so the movie can be played instantly, without the need for the physical disc. Alto can also play directly from a Blu-ray disc or DVD. Movies start immediately, without trailers or warnings, and you can jump right to your favorite scenes and songs, without fast forwarding.
