Kaleidescape Reveals Its Terra 12 Movie Server, Announces New Partnerships with Lutron and Meyer Sound


(August 30, 2021) Yesterday, we spotlighted Kaleidescape's new Terra 72, a mammoth 72 terabyte movie server. Today, the company revealed another new Terra product, Terra 12. As the name indicates, Terra 12 is a 12 terabyte server, making it the smallest server in the Terra collection. It's also the smallest from a size perspective, sharing case similarities with the company's Strato C movie players.

Much like the 24, 48, and 72 terabyte versions of Terra, Terra 12 grants access to 4K UHD downloads in 12 minutes or less. It also supports playback on multiple Strato C players simultaneously. Unlike other Terra servers, Terra 12 can be mounted beside a Strato C in a 1U rack space for space-saving self-storage. Terra 12 now presides as the Series' entry-level product, granting access to a Kaleidescape Terra + Strato C experience for less than $10,000. But, it also allows owners to incrementally increase storage when paired with larger Terra systems already installed in a home.

"This product was designed for customers eager to invest in the Kaleidescape experience but not ready to commit to a larger movie server like the Terra 48 or the recently announced Terra 72," said Tayloe Stansbury, CEO, Kaleidescape. "The Terra 12 gives new customers the same experience as the larger servers, with similar download speeds and performance, while allowing them the flexibility to add playback zones and grow their movie collection over time."

Terra 12 can hold roughly 200 4K UHD movies, and owners can delete and re-download movies from the cloud as they see fit. It's priced at $7,995 and is available for purchase now.

In other Kaleidescape news, the company announced a new partnership with Meyer Sound, maker of integrated solutions for sound reinforcement, spatial sound, acoustic systems, studio monitoring, and high-end residential systems. For a limited time, Kaleidescape customers purchasing a Terra server and Strato C movie player with any three-channel or more Meyer Sound Bluehorn System, Ultra Reflex, or Acheron System, will receive white-glove, onsite system setup complements of Kaleidescape.

Kaleidescape has also announced a new partnership with Lutron, directly integrating Lurtron's flagship HomeWorks lighting control system with current Kaleidescape players. Using Lutron's LEAP integration protocol for Homeworks QSX processors and Kaleidescape's movie-specific metadata, HomeWorks can seamlessly control Lutron's Sivoia QS shades and Ketra lighting solutions.

"For 60 years, Lutron has been focused on delivering great customer experiences. Now, Lutron and Kaleidescape's joint customers can relax, sit back, hit play, and watch their entertainment space transform into a cinema as the lighting and shading effortlessly transitions to the best movie watching environment," explains Sam Chambers, senior director, Residential Systems at Lutron. "By directly integrating HomeWorks and Kaleidescape, customers feel as if they have a commercial cinematic experience in their own home."
