If you are looking to start or grow your own media business, you should consider all the opportunities available to you. From offering monthly subscriptions to receiving charitable donations securely, it can be tough to know where to start. Discover the most popular ways that creators and content owners are monetising their media online in our new infographic.
The past decade has seen an influx of digital-native media companies which have thrived completely online. These are companies that have scaled up without the legacy infrastructure that their traditional counterparts have long relied on (and now have to wean themselves off).
The proliferation of digital-native media companies can be largely attributed to shifting demographics and consumption patterns. Today, millennials often dictate the trends and technologies of the time as they form a large part of the consumer base. As a generation, they gravitate towards digital platforms to access information on the go.
On 19th November 2019, Ajit Pai, chairman of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), announced a public auction of the C-band spectrum (about 500 MHz of bandwidth between 3.7 to 4.2 GHz) to facilitate the development of 5G. The C-Band, a swathe of satellite spectrum that has been historically used for fixed wireless services, plays a crucial role in broadcasting and live production of content such as news reporting and sports feeds.
Research reveals that there were around 2.4 billion Internet users in 2014. By June 2019, that number doubled to 4.4 billion. That’s an 83% increase in the Internet user base in a span of just five years. For the media and telecommunications sector, this raises an all-important question: How far can current underlying networks scale to accommodate the growing traffic on the Internet?
While the good news is that no one single network will need to support this burgeoning traffic, there remains some scepticism around existing networks and their ability to keep pace with the bandwidth demands of next-generation connected devices.
Аdaptive broadcasting is gaining momentum quickly. Live TV is giving way to new services that not only adapt to the broadcasting bandwidth but also receive user feedback as well as generate and display targeted advertising. However, what spurred the broadcasting revolution was streaming, a technology that selects the best available quality. It is unnecessary to have a DVB-T2 antenna, a cable run to your household, or a satellite dish on your balcony to receive such broadcasts: all you need is your favorite gadget, such as a smartphone, a tablet, a laptop, or an in-car multimedia system. These broadcasts have a low buffering capacity for guaranteed delivery of the content and can even tolerate having the user temporarily exit the coverage area.
