Kaleidescape has launched a new online video store for its range of home media servers, claimed to be the first in the world to deliver Blu-ray quality movies. Emerging from being in beta since December 2012, the service provides downloads of movies instead of streams, with audio and video quality said to be equal to that of films on Blu-ray disc itself.
Kaleidescape has made good on its promise and is now shipping the industry's first-ever Blu-ray disc home server. It will store and playback the content of the discs it contains, and uses Kaleidoscape's Movie Guide library of more than 145,000 movie titles to bring high-resolution cover art and a synopsis of the movie. The Kaleidescape System makes it easier to access users' libraries.
Kaleidescape has introduced a new DVD Movie Server, the Cinema One, that represents the company's first system priced around $5,000. The single-component server, which replaces the Mini System, is capable of storing 225 DVDs or 2,500 CDs. Users can play any content instantly, without having to locate the physical disk or navigate DVD menus.
Kaleidescape, a builder of server-based home theater systems, has released two expansion units for its platform. The 1080p Player is designed to slot into a 1U rack, and upscales to maximum possible resolution, whether sourcing movies from digital copies or DVDs loaded into its optical drive. Internal processing handles functions such as automatic widescreen enlargement, and users can import movies and music directly from the Player, without having to walk over to another unit.

Google prevails in UK street mapping case
Possibly setting the stage for other court battles in the UK, a High Court fight between Google and StreetMap.EU has concluded in Google's favor. StreetMap.EU claimed that Google's dominance in the field destroyed the 20-year-old firm's business, when Google started promoting its own service in search results over the older company's -- the judge disagreed. Commercial director Kate Sutton said after the judgment that "StreetMap has been frozen in time; because of what Google did, StreetMap has not been able to properly invest in the website since 2007." An appeal is planned. http://bloom.bg/1KKhECt
