SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoTech Entertainment (OTCPINK: NTEK), a pioneer in bringing the 4K Ultra HD experience to consumers, announced today that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Eagle Rock Entertainment to add more than 50 legendary concerts and music industry documentaries to NanoTech's UltraFlix™ all 4K Ultra HD network.
Eagle Rock Entertainment, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group, and the world's largest producer and distributor of music programming, will provide NanoTech with over 50 titles. NanoTech's 4K Studios is processing the films using its proprietary technology to provide subscribers with an enhanced viewing experience for these films.
Some of the additions to the UltraFlix network's growing library of 4K content include concerts and documentaries featuring renowned musicians and bands including: Elton John, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, Santana, The Doors, Usher, Johnny Cash, Paul McCartney, Alice Cooper, The Who, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Peter Frampton and Duran Duran.
By adding more than 50 new offerings, UltraFlix will enable subscribers to choose from nearly 500 hours of pristine 4K Ultra HD content in a broad range of venues plus 100 hours of free content—all while expanding its lead in the 4K Ultra HD content race. As the world's largest source for 4K content, UltraFlix has become the preferred 4K Smart TV App for leading 4K TV manufacturers including Sony, Vizio and others that are in the process of completing their testing and integration of the only dedicated 4K streaming app. Recently, UltraFlix provided the content for demonstrations featuring 4K Ultra HD televisions from Samsung, Sony and LG at Best Buy's Ultra HD viewing events.
"We want the viewers to experience the excitement and amazing visual effects of our concerts as though they are actually there and we are convinced that UltraFlix can deliver that and more," said Terry Shand, Eagle Rock's Executive Chairman/CEO.
To ensure that the content it converts to 4K provides a remarkably superior viewing experience with incredible color, image edge clarity and increased depth perception, 4K Studios will combine its Ultra HD 4K motion picture film-scanning systems with its proprietary, patent-pending post-production processing technology. Once in digital format, 4K Studios' editing team removes digital noise and applies professional color and gamma correction on a scene-by-scene basis to ensure that the content it converts to 4K is noise-free and delivers incredible color, depth and clarity.
"Eagle Rock is a world-class content company that has been recognized with some of the industry's most prestigious awards and we're honored to partner with them," said Aaron Taylor, NanoTech's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Like Eagle Rock, we're focused on quality and are committed to delivering their content, and all of our 4K content, with the highest quality experience."
UltraFlix, the world's first dedicated 4K Ultra HD network, is available on NanoTech's award-winning Nuvola™ NP-1 streaming 4K Ultra HD media player as well as Sony and Vizio 4K smart TVs. UltraFlix will also be available on a variety of other 4K Ultra HD devices and TVs later this year.
