Within the business of television, there are areas that have been tremendously affected by the advancement in technology. If we break down the business in certain areas, we can study the impact and nature of the technological advancement in each of those. This will also make it easier to guage the impact of those advacements on our business. Areas that can be significantly categorised, for this purpose, include:

  • Production
  • Delivery
  • Reception

In addition to the above, there is an artisan or creative side of the TV business that stands to be affected by the technological advancement in each of the above areas. That is the area of “creation of content”. Over the years, though, this area has developed more “creatively” than it has “technologically”.  It will, however, be interesting to see how the new developments like YouTube are affecting the creation of content.

I will classify all my posts in the above sections for the ease of organising thoughts, and of course to make the blog easier to access and read.
