The K-Reader was the very common 1U consumer disc loading device. It was sold with every system before the Movie Player 2 came out that had an integrated disc tray. There are still a lot of them out there, and many users, me included, really like them as an extra way to load discs maybe in the equipment room or headend.

Can't find the specs anywhere, so maybe someone can ask K? According to this post at Kaleidescape's offical FAQ, there's another difference between the Kplayer2000 and later models... the later models allowed IRE settings of +7.5 or 0 (blacker than black) but Kplayer2000 didn't. They don't talk more about the Kplayer 2000 in the FAQ however. (But it's now clear there was also a model K-Player 2000E as well as a K-Player 2000).

As far back as I can track the info I downloaded from Kaleidescape, there was no downloadable PDF for the original movie player. I do have this PDF from early 2004 that provides the specifications for the components as of that time, which includes the specs for the original movie player and the reader.

The file is too large for uploading, so I broke it up into 3 parts. I'm not sure if this is the Kplayer-2000 or the Kplayer-2000E.

If anyone wants the original 8 page overview from March 2004, I can email it to you.

Jay

Made the following update.
Changed the disk size from 1TB to 2TB on the 1U and 3U server to reflect the new disk size Kaleidescape is providing.

It looks like they also put out a new revision to the Speed Reader last year. Same read speed, slightly higher capacity, more disc types allowed, lower power consumption, a little larger & heavier with a different bin layout, and updated compliances. However, not sure if any of those compliances mean they are more quiet.
