Kaleidescape Disc Vaults
Installation and Operation Guide
The M700 and DV700 Disc Vaults are designed to quickly add movies and
music to your Kaleidescape System. Simply insert as many discs as you like,
and walk away. Your disc vault does the rest.
Blu-ray discs, non-protected DVDs and CDs are automatically copied bit-forbit to the server. Protected DVDs are automatically cataloged, allowing them
to appear in your library the same as content downloaded from the
Kaleidescape Store or imported from disc.
The disc vault holds up to 320 discs. When a Blu-ray disc remains in the
vault, playback of the copy on the server is enabled from any compatible
player in the system, including the integrated player in the M700 Disc Vault
(when part of a Premiere line system). When a cataloged DVD remains in the
vault, playback from the built-in optical disc drive is fully-automated to any
player in the system.
This document provides steps for installing and setting up a disc vault,
adding discs, using the integrated player in an M700 Disc Vault and
troubleshooting.
Installation
Unpack the disc vault, using a two-person lift technique to remove it from
the box. The disc vault ships with feet and rack ears attached.
Tabletop / Shelf Installation
Use a 2.5 mm hex screwdriver to loosen and remove the seven screws that
secure the rack ears to each side of the chassis. See Figure 1.

Removing the Front Panel
2. Remove the feet using a Philips screwdriver so the disc vault does not
obstruct the rack space below.
3. Mount the vault in the rack with the provided Phillips screws. See
Figure 3.
Note:
If additional space at the back of the vault is required, adjust the rack
ears using the following steps:
a. Remove the center screw on each rack ear.
b. Loosen the remaining screws and slide the rack ears back.
c. Tighten the screws securely, disregarding the center screw.

4. Replace the front panel by aligning the metal tab at the bottom inside of
the panel with the slot in the front of the chassis. Press firmly and evenly
to snap the panel into place.
Connections
The disc vault must be connected to the same network where the
Kaleidescape system is installed in order to operate as a speed reader and
disc vault.
An M700 Disc Vault will operate as an M-Class player when part of a
Premiere line system. Audio and video connections are required to operate
as an M-Class player. A controller connection is optional.
Note:
When connected to Cinema One (2nd generation), the M700 Disc Vault
operates only as a speed reader and disc vault. The M-Class player is
disabled.
Network Connection
1. Make sure the server is connected to the network and powered on.

2. Insert an Ethernet cable into the network port on the back of the vault.
See Figure 4.
Figure 4
Connecting the Network Cable
3. Insert the other end of the Ethernet cable into a 1000Base-T Ethernet
switch for optimal network communication.
Note:
After power is connected and a 1000Base-T link is established, the light
on the left of the network port will glow amber to indicate the
connection speed. When a 100Base-TX link is established, this light
glows green. The right light blinks green when there is network activity.
Audio / Video Connections
Skip this section if the M700 Disc Vault will only be used for importing and
housing, or if it is connected to Cinema One (2nd generation). The DV700
Disc Vault does not have an integrated player.
The M700 Disc Vault provides several options for connecting audio and
video for use as an M-Class player.
1. Connect audio and video cables to an HDTV, receiver, projector or
monitor. High Speed HDMI® offers the best picture quality. Component,
S-Video and composite connections are also available.
2. Connect audio outputs to the sound system (if applicable). Digital
optical, digital coaxial and analog stereo connections are available.
HDMI will also carry the audio signal.
Controller Connections
The integrated player can be controlled three ways: Ethernet (TCP/IP), serial
(RS-232) and infrared (IR). IR commands can also be received via an 1/8”

Connecting the power cord to begin automatic initialization. See Figure 5.
Note:
Kaleidescape recommends using a grounded outlet and a high-quality
surge protector to avoid electrical damage.

Inserting Discs
Titles are added to the system in the order they are inserted into the disc
vault.
1. Insert discs into the insertion slot one at a time with the label facing to
the right, releasing the disc just as it is engaged by the internal
mechanism. See Figure 6.
CAUTION: Do not insert discs when the lights glow amber at the top
and bottom of the insertion slot.
2. Load all the discs.
As discs are inserted, the front panel display shows how many discs are
waiting to be identified. If no discs are loaded for two minutes, identification
begins automatically. Press the OK button to start this process immediately.
[xx] discs to be identified
Note:
The disc vault installation can be staged. Discs can be loaded before
connecting the disc vault to a server or Cinema One. The vault can be
transported in an equipment rack or in the original packaging without
removing the discs. At all times during transportation, the disc vault must
remain upright in its normal operating orientation.
If cataloging or importing of a disc is interrupted by a loss of power or
network communication, the process will restart automatically once power
and network communication is restored. Only the current title is affected.
Cataloging and Importing Discs
When the M700 Disc Vault or the DV700 Disc Vault is connected to a
Kaleidescape system sold by Kaleidescape on or after November 30th 2014,
CSS-protected DVDs will be cataloged. For more information, visit
www.kaleidescape.com/protected-dvds.
A disc vault automatically catalogs or imports discs after identification. No
user attention is required. On average, a disc vault imports 100 CDs in
under 7 hours, 100 DVDs in under 35 hours, or 100 Blu-ray discs in under
50 hours. Cataloging a disc takes less than a minute.
Monitoring Progress
The front panel display shows how long the current disc has left.
Importing: [Title of disc]
