Helkon to handle Col TriStar fare

Deal expected to boost revs

BERLIN — Helkon Media has signed a three-year deal with Columbia TriStar Home Video to distribute the U.S. company’s current and upcoming video, DVD and CD-ROM releases in the German-speaking territories.

Martin Heldmann, finance exec at the Munich-based producer and distrib, said the deal significantly will boost Helkon’s home entertainment revs.

Germany, Austria and Switzerland also are attractive prospects for the Sony subsidiary.

“The collaboration with Helkon, an established media company, will increase Columbia TriStar’s market share in the very significant, although highly competitive, German-language market,” said Malisa Scott, managing director of Columbia TriStar Home Video Germany.

Scott added that future joint pan-European ventures between Col TriStar and Helkon are likely.

Helkon already has a theatrical distrib deal with Buena Vista.
