Intel K.K. and Yoshimoto Kogyo Co. Ltd will collaborate to promote the wider utilization of digital home content. The companies plan to expand rich content available to consumers over broadband infrastructure when using high-performance digital home PCs built on Intel Pentium D processor-based platforms and intel centrino mobile technologies that feature high-definition audio and video capabilities.

As part of the collaboration, Intel K.K. and Bellrock Media Inc. have developed the first short movie featuring Yoshimoto entertainers. Bellrock Media was recently established in the U.S. as a strategic company for Yoshimoto Kogyo's group companies and Faith Inc., a technology provider of content distribution for PCs and cell phones. Bellrock Media K.K. in Japan, a subsidiary of Bellrock Media Inc, will plan, create and deliver original and sponsored digital video content while it distributes music CD and DVD titles.

Bellrock Media K.K. intends to acquire domestic and international premium content rights, and to expand its businesses by utilizing Yoshimoto Kogyo's property together. Starting this month, the company will offer Yoshimoto Kogyo's music CD/DVD and comedy DVD titles which Yoshimoto Kogyo group companies produce.

Moreover, Intel and Yoshimoto also announced that Intel Capital, Intel's strategic investment program, also has invested in Bellrock Media. Intel Capital's investment was made from the $200 million Intel Digital Home Fund, which supports Intel's initiatives to enable people to enjoy digital content, including music, photos, games and video, on all types of devices, anytime and anywhere. Proceeds from the investment are expected to be used to help expand Bellrock Media's lineup of online content by enhancing its business operations in the online content market segment and to accelerate the deployment of its services among consumers.
