The Allegro Media Group has cut a deal to be distributor of the Media Blasters DVD family of labels.

Media Blasters includes AnimeWorks, specializing in Japanese animation; Tokyo Shock, specializing in Asian film; and Shriek Show, specializing in horror.

The deal frees up "Media Blasters to focus on localizing properties for the U.S. market, developing new features and series, and producing the highest possible quality DVD, Blu-Ray, and digitally distributed releases," according to the company's president/CEO John Sirabella.

The move continues Allegro's diversification strategy, this time enhancing its DVD catalog, which now comprises a larger portion of its revenue than music, according to Allegro chairman/CEO Joe Micallef.
