Leading your company in their direct-to-consumer transformation
How to navigate the technologies and trends driving video on demand
Traditional studios have operated under a business-to-business model for years—most of their revenue was generated by selling to a theater, television network or retailer. As direct-to-consumer exploded, the Hollywood studios had to pivot and create their own streaming offerings.

All of this needed to be delivered while sustaining the traditional distribution channels operations.
We examine the five trends that will significantly impact streaming services over the next year, and the technology that will enable media companies to flourish in this hyper-competitive marketplace.
"We will continue to see rapid adoption of new technologies in the areas of production supply chain, advertising and data quality."
