ZiiEagle Puts Shaw Classics On The Move




More news and information about ZiiEagle and Creative collaboration with Celestial Pictures.

Buy a portable digital video device and watch more than 600 classic Asian films without hassle.

That is the promise to consumers in a deal made between Celestial Pictures, a Hong Kong-based film company and operator of regional pay TV channels, and Singapore's Creative Technology.

Under the deal, 668 Shaw Brothers films and 500 hours of original TV dramas from Celestial Pictures will be made available for download and viewing on Creative's portable viewing devices.

This is the first time that many of Shaw's classics can now be downloaded in full via a portable media platform. The titles include Li Han Hsiang's Kingdom And The Beauty (1959), about a young emperor beguiled by a beautiful woman played by Asian movie queen Lin Dai, and martial arts flick The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin (1978), reported to be among American auteur Quentin Tarantino's favourite Asian films.

The range of devices the films can be viewed on, as well as the pricing and method of downloading, will be announced by Creative at a later date.

Mr Ross Pollack, chief executive officer of Celestial Pictures, said: "This partnership exemplifies our strategy of showcasing our content on different and new platforms to reach new audiences."

Creative Technology's director of media services Vinson Chua noted that these films could inspire the next generation that have grown up on high-tech devices: "Many of the films' creative ideas were ahead of their time and will serve asa treasure trove of ideas for future generations of film-makers."

Celestial Pictures owns the Shaw Brothers Film Library, which has 760 feature films released from the 1950s to the late 1990s. The films have been remastered and preserved in digital format. Of these, 133 titles are available in high -definition format.

Under the agreement, Creative has licensed the non-exclusive digital download rights as well as Internet download-to-own rights to release an extensive range of the films as well as Celestial's TV dramas such as Empress Feng Of The Northern Wei (2006), which stars Jacqueline Ng in the titular role.

If time is money, I won't go to a fansite where I have no interest to post wicked, childish or consistently opposing remarks.
