Germany's Splendid Medien has signed a distribution agreement with Warner Home Video for a package of 19 films.

Warner will handle rental releases on video and DVD in Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland on the titles, which include Traffic, Gangs Of New York and Dr T And The Women. The two partners expect turnover of more than $6.7m from the package, which includes a number of video premieres.

Sell-through releases will continue to go through Splendid's recently established joint venture with Warner Vision, in which Splendid holds 49% and Warner Music has 51%.
