VGTel-360 Entertainment & Productions Acquires 4K Rights to 'Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia'

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 27, 2014) - (OTCQB: VGTL) -- The digital-scan and distribution rights to the Donald Sutherland-narrated, giant-screen 4K film Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia have been acquired by VGTel-360 Entertainment & Productions as it prepares for the worldwide fall launch of UltraHD channels, the Company announced today.

Acquisition of Dinosaurs bolsters VGTel-360 Entertainment & Productions 4K film inventory for distribution to broadcasters, who are bracing for increasing consumer demand via the popularity and prevalent growth of new UltraHD channels, expected to push deep through Q1 2015.

"Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia is an evergreen, family friendly title that is a picture-perfect high-def image," said VGTel-360 Entertainment & Productions CEO Greg Wells. "The clarity and colors translate powerfully into UltraHD, with equally strong appeal to licensors and UHD broadcasters."

The Company has financed digital scanning for a series of giant-screen films to 4K format since December 2013. Earlier this month, the Company announced the launch of its wholly owned subsidiary Motion Picture Scanning Services (MPSS) in Austin, Texas. Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia will be the first giant-screen film to be digitally scanned from the original film format at the new MPSS state of the art studio.

Motion Picture Scanning Services CTO Greg Passmore, long recognized as a technology leader in the production and post production markets, designed a new type of scanner for MPSS that is specifically tailored for large format films. The newly designed scanner operates with an extremely high resolution, along with High Dynamic Range imagining, specialized workflows and minimal touch technology to produce the highest possible quality. 

VGTel-360 Entertainment & Productions, in collaboration with MPSS and its production and distribution partners, is scanning, downscaling and licensing these giant-screen films for UltraHD television broadcast and 4K theatrical distribution.

Dinosaurs, a 2007 film depicting Early Cretaceous life in the shared Patagonia region of Argentina and Chile, will be followed by giant-screen favorites Adrenaline Rush: The Science of Risk; Alaska: Spirit of the Wild; Amazing Journeys; and Bears.

"The pieces are falling in place for 4K to become the new standard in entertainment," said Wells. "Our goal is to be positioned as a major supplier of these films."

Dinosaurs is a compelling science film that features world-renowned Argentinean paleontologist Rodolfo Coria, who visits major dinosaur discoveries at key South American sites. It offers a computer-generated glimpse of rarely seen dinosaurs, including Giganotosaurus and Argentinosaurus.

Licensing for the VGTel-360 Entertainment & Productions 4K titles is via Los Angeles-based distributor K2 Communications.
