HACKENSACK, N.J., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- ObjectSoft Corporation (Nasdaq: OSFT) announced today that it has licensed superior quality video trailers from ScreenPlay Incorporated for its new Internet-based FastTake(TM) video kiosk, the latest development in the retail video industry.
Arriving in stores across the US and Canada over the next 60 days, the addition of ScreenPlay's trailers is part of an ongoing effort to make FastTake a valuable tool to retailers, ObjectSoft said.
"This solidifies ObjectSoft's position as the provider of the most innovative video sales aid and customer service tool available today," said ObjectSoft Chairman and CEO David E. Y. Sarna. "In-store use of FastTake will allow retailers to reach out to their customers in a new and exciting way."

The software for FastTake can allow for database updates, cross promotion between studio and retailer, advertising, multiple rental promotion, point-of-purchase promotion and demographic targeting to benefit the store owner. FastTake installation and servicing are provided by IBM Corporation.
