UMG independent distribution arm FONTANA has inked an exclusive distribution deal with EAGLE ROCK ENTERTAINMENT. As part of the deal, FONTANA will distribute a wide range of music DVD and audio products from EAGLE ROCK, while its sister company, VIVENDI VISUAL ENTERTAINMENT (VVE), the award-winning home entertainment division of UMGD, will distribute the extensive line of non-music DVD titles from EAGLE MEDIA.
"EAGLE ROCK has quickly emerged as the home to not only many of the world's most beloved artists, but to an incredibly innovative and dynamic executive team," stated UMGD Pres. JIM URIE. "This deal demonstrates the breath of services that UMGD can provide its partners like EAGLE ROCK, who have chosen to take the next great step in their storied history with us."
"[EAGLE ROCK COO] GEOFF [KEMPIN] and I believe FONTANA and VVE will significantly extend the outlet reach of our buoyant music DVD catalogue and provide the right fit for our growing non-music range," EAGLE ROCK Chair./CEO TERRY SHAND said.
