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.
