LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NanoTech Entertainment (OTCPINK: NTEK), a pioneer in bringing the 4K Ultra HD experience to consumers, announced today at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that it has signed an agreement with indie film producer, Milton Horowitz, to provide UltraFlix™, NanoTech Entertainment’s streaming 4K Ultra HD service, with exclusive rights to distribute the feature film Moonshine Kingdom in 4K resolution. With the agreement, UltraFlix will deliver the high energy, dark comedy through a variety of devices including NanoTech Entertainment’s award-winning Nuvola NP-1™ 4K streaming media player. All NP-1 players come with UltraFlix UHD pre-installed and customers receive 10 free rentals on the service.
The Nuvola’s 4K streaming capabilities provide distinct advantages over players that only download content. With streaming users do not have to wait for downloads or use up their valuable storage capacity storing large files. NanoTech’s UltraFlix delivers the 4K Ultra HD experience over the existing internet infrastructure, with support for internet connections as low as 6 mbit/s.
Based on true events, Moonshine Kingdom tells the story of an Amish man who willingly leaves the Amish community. Struggling to survive, he enlists in the armed services as a war medic. The film begins upon his arrival back home after serving his country, only to find he is rejected by the Amish community. The film quickly unravels when he is introduced by an old friend to the underground, chaotic and dangerous world of "shining," aka moonshining. This hilarious chaos-ridden drama will leave viewers guessing all the way to the end.
“We met the folks at NanoTech Entertainment during AFM this year when Moonshine Kingdom made its debut,” said Milton Horowitz, the film’s writer and director. “We’re excited to be a part of this historical event in technology and the added exposure our distribution agreement with NanoTech will bring. UltraFlix is undoubtedly a win-win proposition for content owners like us because it helps meet the consumers’ growing demand for 4K content while helping content owners increase their ROI,” said Horowitz.
NanoTech Entertainment is committed to continuing the expansion of UltraFlix’s comprehensive library of 4K titles,” said Aaron Taylor, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing for NanoTech Entertainment. “Moonshine Kingdom was produced with the highest resolution available today and we’re very pleased to offer this amazing cinematic viewing experience to our customers while preserving the original quality,” Taylor said.
