Kaleidescape Blu-ray On Track For 2009
It appears that Kaleidescape is no longer contented with a player that provides “a viewing experience that rivals Blu-ray” as declared in the downloadable datasheet for their 1080p Player.
According to their CEO, Michael Malcolm, they’re all set to release a player that will still look like the 1080p model but will fully support the Blu-ray disc format. The planned release date is set at the end of 2009. The Blu-ray Disk Player is expected to be fully compatible with all existing Kaleidescape Systems.
No word on whether or not the release date is being held up by the still un-finalized Manage Copy portion of the AACS Final Agreement.
