Home Entertainment Systems: Sometimes it seems that everything is so complex that even relaxing can be somewhat burdensome. However, when it comes to managing personal movie and music collections, the Kaleidescape System is the alternative to escape from "hard" technology to intelligent high technology seamlessly. It is so simple to operate that most children can teach their overworked parents how to use it efficiently in minutes.

Users can upload DVDs and CDs onto their Kaleidescape server and access those from an onscreen catalog from any room in the house with a flat-panel screen. Once the material is loaded, the system eliminates having to deal with physical discs. Personally made videos also can be stored, accessed, and viewed.

The Kaleidescape server holds enough data to get you through the longest of weekends, as it stores up to 1,800 DVDs and 20,000 CDs. Disk cartridges can be used to store additional DVDs and CDs. Additional servers can be added s well. The Movie Player 2 handles both HD and DVD formats. The Music Player imports both CDs and DVDs and has four independent audio feeds. It also syncs to iTunes, so music can be transferred via a PC onto an iPod.

The system received rave reviews at the most recent CES conference. Having the mighty multitasking system is like is like adding a home-entertainment concierge to the household staff. The base price for an entry-level system is around $13,000, including installation and set up.

My mother could use this system and save days in movie-night preparation, Who knows maybe even clean up the closet she now stores everything in.

Why hasn't anyone come up with something like this before? This makes a lot of sense.
