Follow this step-by-step guide to ensure a smooth and successful setup of your kaleidescape Strato.

Unboxing and Initial Inspection

When you first receive your Kaleidescape Strato, carefully unbox it and inspect the contents. Your package should include:

  • Kaleidescape Strato unit
  • Power cord
  • Remote control
  • HDMI cable
  • Quick start guide

Ensure that all items are present and in good condition before proceeding.

Choosing the Right Location

Select a well-ventilated area for your Kaleidescape Strato to ensure optimal performance. The unit should be placed on a stable, flat surface close to your TV or projector. Make sure there’s enough space around the device to allow for proper airflow, which helps prevent overheating.

Connecting the Strato to Your Display

  1. HDMI Connection: Use the provided HDMI cable to connect the Strato to your TV or projector. Insert one end of the cable into the HDMI output port on the Strato and the other end into an available HDMI input port on your display device.
  2. Audio Connection: If you have a separate audio system, such as an AV receiver, use an additional HDMI cable to connect the Strato’s audio output to your audio system. Alternatively, you can use the Strato’s optical audio output if your audio system supports it.

Network Connection

Your Kaleidescape Strato needs an internet connection to download movie content, software updates, and metadata. You have two options for connecting to the internet:

  1. Wired Connection: For the most stable and fastest connection, use an Ethernet cable to connect the Strato to your router or network switch.
  2. Wireless Connection: If a wired connection is not feasible, you can use the Strato’s built-in Wi-Fi. During the setup process, you’ll be prompted to select your Wi-Fi network and enter the password.

Powering Up

Plug the power cord into the Strato and then into a power outlet. Press the power button on the front of the unit or use the remote control to turn it on. The Strato will begin its initial boot-up process, which may take a few minutes.

 Initial Setup and Configuration

Once the Strato is powered on, follow these steps to complete the initial setup:

  1. Language Selection: On the initial screen, select your preferred language.
  2. Network Setup: If you opted for a wireless connection, select your Wi-Fi network and enter the password. If you’re using a wired connection, the Strato should automatically detect your network.
  3. Display Settings: The Strato will automatically detect the best resolution for your display. However, you can manually adjust the resolution and aspect ratio if necessary.
  4. Kaleidescape Account: Sign in to your Kaleidescape account or create a new one if you don’t already have one. This account will be used to purchase and download movies.
  5. Software Updates: The Strato will check for any available software updates and prompt you to install them. It’s important to keep your device up-to-date for optimal performance and new features.

Downloading and Playing Content

With the setup complete, you’re ready to start enjoying your Kaleidescape Strato. Browse the Kaleidescape Movie Store to purchase and download movies directly to your device. Once downloaded, you can access your movie library from the Strato’s main menu and start watching in stunning 4K UHD with high-fidelity audio.


Setting up your Kaleidescape Strato is a straightforward process that, once completed, will elevate your home theater experience to new heights. By following this step-by-step guide, you’ll ensure a smooth setup and be well on your way to enjoying the best in home entertainment. Happy viewing!
