Motion Picture Scanning Services Upgrades 4K Scanning Work Flow to Add 35mm Feature Films and Television Programming

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - February 25, 2015) - (OTCQB: VGTL) -- VGTel - 360 Entertainment & Productions announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary 4K film scanning studio -- Motion Picture Scanning Services, Inc. ("MPSS") -- has upgraded its 4K scanning work flow and is now providing 4K scanning services for films and programs that were originally shot on 16mm and 35mm film stock.

"When we first formed MPSS in Austin our main focus was on the 4K scanning of 65mm Giant Screen films for digital theaters, Ultra HD television, 4K Blu-ray, video on demand and interactive media. Since our launch, we've completed the 4K scan and restoration of Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia and will soon finish and release two additional Giant Screen films in UHD -- Zion Canyon: Treasure of the Gods and Kilimanjaro: To the Roof of Africa," said MPSS COO James Humann. 

The expansion of services is the company's response to the rapid pace of growth happening in the UHD/4K market. With companies like DirecTV, Amazon, Samsung, Sony and Netflix now offering 4K programming, Ultra High Definition is quickly emerging as the next standard for television. And, with sales of large Ultra HD televisions skyrocketing, the demand for quality Ultra HD content is growing exponentially. 

"There are millions of hours of prime Ultra HD content that's captured on 35mm film and stored in vaults worldwide. With our proprietary modular design and unique film transport system, we can accommodate 16mm and 35mm content ... as well as our usual large format 65mm Giant Screen films," added Humann. "We are now offering scanning services to owners of feature films and television programs and, with our distribution partner K2 Communications, we offer a turnkey service that can quickly monetize archival film assets. Additionally, there is the added benefit for the film owner of having a restored 4K digital master that can be archived to serve as the long-term preservation element. Our MPSS scanner is the perfect way to give a film new life and introduce all of those old classics to a new age."
