In addition to Large Format Films, SlingShot is the only sales and marketing company to release DVD titles in 3D using field sequential technology. Field sequential technology allows the viewer to watch the movie using shutter glasses as opposed to the cardboard glasses found in older 3D titles.
Upon initial acquisitions in 1998, the company expanded into a sales and marketing center for DVD and VHS, and began releasing titles in December of that year. Since 1998, SlingShot has acquired a video library and the respective distribution rights for more than 125 quality film titles. SlingShot is an entertainment video content acquisition, development and supply company that has several dozen existing licensors and content partners.
The company’s product development allows it to develop high quality content, specifically designed for new entertainment markets. As a result, SlingShot’s content is able to generate more market enthusiasm with relatively lower budgets that enable the globalized mass-marketing strategies of an all-media distributor to better create awareness for a new brand and expand it across multiple markets.
SlingShot licenses/produces films and sells to major North American retail customers such as Kmart, Wal*mart, Best Buy, Musicland/Sam Goody, Target, Transworld, Border’s, Barnes & Noble, Virgin, Tower Video, Wherehouse, and via the Internet thru amazon.com, buy.com, deepdiscountdvd.com, dvdplanet.com and many additional retail and e-commerce sites. It also distributes its titles through strategic partners in Canada, China, Japan, Korea, the EU, Scandinavia, Italy, Greece, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Central and Latin America and South Africa.
