Visual Healthcare to Provide Some of Its Intelligent Technology to Help Mobile Entertainment Companies
RENO, Nev., June 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Visual Healthcare Corp. (the "Company") (NASDAQ OTC: VSHC) announces that it has entered into an agreement to provide some of its smart distributive and inferential technologies to a group of new companies in the business of providing quality entertainment for mobile devices. These companies, part of a new generation of businesses in the entertainment industries, will rely on our proprietary enabling platforms to provide real smart tools to help mobile device users enjoy a more personal and satisfying experience when navigating complex film and music entertainment libraries.
The Company has been seeking ways to derive additional revenues from its extensive portfolio of proprietary smart technology beyond its core health and science markets.
"Mobile entertainment will certainly benefit from the kind of smart automation that we have been using in complex drug management," says Chairman Gerard Dab. "It's about allowing users to use music and film libraries to find products that fit their taste and liking. For our company, this is a straight licensing deal in which we deliver technology at very little cost to us and will not distract from our core health and science automation business," concludes Mr. Dab.
The Company expects to book a first tranche of $2.5 of this $5.5 million agreement by the end of the year. "Supporting other industries with automation solutions and smart systems like ours will be significant source of revenues in the future," says Mr. Dab.
