New Rules for the Film, TV, Broadband & Mobile Video Industry – Deals, Advertising and Commerce

Since their beginnings, technology has transformed the entertainment and media industries. And while there were always the naysayers, predicting such gems such as the end of Hollywood with the invention of TV or that cable would doom the TV industry, the entertainment industry has been more durable than they could have ever suspected.

In fact, with the coming of new technologies, the entertainment and media industries have emerged as global powerhouses. And the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Entertainment and media are being challenged once again – Hollywood 2.0 is now upon us with an entirely new set of technologies with new rules of engagement.
