A range of Australian cinema classics will be among at least 30 titles released on DVD and video in the next 12 months under a new deal between Beyond International and information technology group and home entertainment distributor Chaos. Upcoming titles licensed by Beyond will also be manufactured, marketed and distributed by Chaos, which has its own specialist outlets.

The two companies plan to develop new content for PC users and consumer products, and explore opportunities to develop technical infrastructure and software together. Beyond, whose film division catalogue includes over 120 features, already has a broadband media arm.
