The Kaleidescape Co-Star for Creston NVX solution is now available, with the purchase of a special Co-Star for Crestron software license. This solution allows Strato movie players to present a unified onscreen library that includes all of a Kaleidescape customer’s movies – from DVD discs to downloaded 4K HDR movies – in one seamless interface. Co-Star allows the movies on both a Strato system and a Premiere system to be played from a single user interface.
With the Co-Star for Crestron feature, Strato players are paired with Kaleidescape M-Class players using Crestron DM-NVX encoder/decoder devices, which can switch between video sources and transport 2160p60 4:4:4 video over standard Gigabit Ethernet. NVX devices are controlled using a Crestron control processor, and the Kaleidescape module for these processors has been extended to allow Strato to direct the NVX devices to switch between players, enabling playback of movies from both systems.
