The award-winning Kaleidescape Strato is the world's first and only 4K Ultra HD high-dynamic-range movie player. Strato plays movies in true 4K Ultra HD at up to 60 frames per second, without startup delays, buffering messages, or quality drops that are so common with streaming services. Strato supports lossless multichannel audio including Dolby Atmos, and bit-stream pass-through of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. The Strato onscreen user interface is also displayed in 4K Ultra HD, at 60 frames per second, resulting in fluid animation and a stunning visual impact.
Strato can be purchased with or without an internal 6TB hard drive that can store up to 100 4K Ultra HD movies, 200 Blu-ray quality movies, or 900 DVD quality movies. Strato equipped with internal movie storage can be used standalone. Strato with or without internal storage can play movies from a Terra movie server or from another Strato or Alto movie player with internal storage.
Kaleidescape Strato Combines All of the Color, Sound, and Crip Detail of the True 4K Ultra HD with The Convenience of Internet Delivery.
Kaleidescape designed the Strato movie player to provide an immersive home- cinema experience, with better audio and video playback quality than most commercial theaters.

Strato plays downloaded 4K Ultra HD movies at up to 100 Mbps and 60 frames per second, without the startup delays, buffering messages, or quality drops that are so common with streaming services. Strato plays downloaded Blu-ray and DVD quality movies in 4K using advanced upscaling algorithms.
Strato supports lossless multichannel audio, and is capable of playing HDR content on televisions and projectors that can process open standard 10-bit HDMI® 2.0a HDR. The Strato onscreen user interface is also displayed in full 4K Ultra HD, at 60 frames per second, resulting in uid animation and a stunning visual impact.

in a system with other Encore components. The Strato with or without an internal hard drive can play back from a Terra movie server, or from another Kaleidescape Strato or Alto with internal storage.
