UTA, Veoh Join in Talent Venture

Jan 17, 2007  •  Post A Comment

In one of the first partnerships between a Hollywood talent agency and an online video site, United Talent Agency struck a deal with Veoh networks to find new talent online and to showcase digital content from UTA clients.

Veoh board member Michael Eisner brokered the deal, Veoh said.

A new channel will be created for the venture and will launch next month. UTA’s broadband division, UTAO, will use it to aggregate the digital submissions it has received since starting the division in October 2006, letting Veoh users view and share the material.

UTA will direct potential clients to Veoh as the means to submit video materials to the agency going forward.

Veoh is the 15th-most-visited online video site, logging 520,000 unique visitors in December, according to Nielsen//NetRatings.
