Kaleidescape outs M500, M300 Blu-ray servers

m300-m500.jpgCalifornia-based Kaleidescape has announced the M500 and M300 Blu-ray players. Both are a little different than usual in that they copy Blu-ray content to a server from which they draw it upon playback. The M500 itself can playback Blu-ray, DVD and CD audio straight from a disc or server, but the M300 can only draw from the server itself. Both units, however, require a physical disc to be present that corresponds with the content being drawn from the server (piracy issues, you know). Combine both units together and you have the "world's first" multi-zone server for Blu-ray content. In the future, the company is also working on a disc boot loader enabling a large number of discs to be kept present within the system. Shipping May 18, the M500 and M300 will have rather expensive MSRPs of $3995 and $2495, respectively.
