As the clear lines and historic boundaries that once separated broadcasting, cable, telephone and Internet communication dissolve, this comprehensive new edition examines the relationship and convergence patterns between industries by exploring the effects of digitalization in media and information technology.
With today’s dynamic and rapidly evolving communication environment, media managers need to have a clear understanding of the different delivery platforms as well as critical management and planning strategies going forward. Advancements in new media and communication technology coupled with a rapidly changing global economy promise a new set of hybrid-media companies that will allow for the full integration of information and entertainment services and give new meaning to the term programming. This book provides a detailed look at seven key sectors of the media and telecommunications field as well as ongoing changes within the industry. The new edition includes updated research throughout including material on major business and technology changes as well as the importance of digital lifestyle reflected in E-commerce and developments in Over-the-Top Video-streaming services. Special attention is given to such areas as strategic planning, innovation, marketing, finance and leadership.
Perfect for courses in media management and media industries, as well as professional managers, this book serves as an important reference guide during this transitional time.
