Blue-Laser Player To Enable Blu-ray Disc Copying

Manufacturer of high-end home entertainment servers, Kaleidescape, will release a Blue-Laser player sometime in 2009. What exactly is a Blue-Laser player? It's a device that will work with all of Kaleidescape's home entertainment servers that supports H.264, VC-1, and MPEG-2 formats, and let's you copy Blu-ray discs onto your Kaleidescape server for storage and playback.

Kaleidescape licensed the DVD Copy Control Association's Content Scramble System which enables the company to bypass the copy protection on DVD's and as of next year, Blu-ray discs. Kaleidescape home server owners will be able to store roughly 33 Blu-ray movies on a 750 GB disk cartridge, allowing them to be stored, organized, and played back from the server rather than from the original disc.

Not surprisingly, Kaleidescape has no plans to support HD DVD unless it "becomes a more successful format".
