EnterTech, Talk in deal for content

Company to provide films, TV shows for video telephone

EnterTech Media, founded by producer John Daly (“Platoon”), has inked a $10 million exclusive content distrib deal with teleconferencing firm Talk Visual Corporation.

Under the terms of the five-year pact, EnterTech will provide films, docus and TV shows for view on Talk’s latest video telephone model. The programming can then be downloaded into a regular television set or computer through a Talk-provided video cable.

Phone users pull up EnterTech programming by dialing the TV225’s touch-tone keypad, where content is then seen on an attached LCD flat screen.

The TV225 is currently available, and EnterTech entertainment will roll out in the next five months. A DSL, high-speed version of the phone will be offered in December.

All long-distance video transport services for the phone will be provided by Sprint. Local DSL carriers include Bell Atlantic, USWest, Southwestern Bell and Ameritech.

“With this technology and delivery system, we are positioned to become the world’s first major telephonic and Internet film studio,” Daly said. “We’re sending content direct to homes via the TV225 and onto TV sets, when and where consumers want it.”

And EnterTech prexy Mark Tolner insists the phone is not just for tech-heads.

“I’m having one shipped to my kids in England right now,” he said.

Currently, Los Angeles-based EnterTech is producing “Final Journey,” a project that follows a Russian actor into space while he lives at the Mir space station. Shooting on the pic kicks off next month.
