Digital media is almost impossible to define because it is changing daily. What is new today is old tomorrow.
Blink and you could miss then next innovation. A week’s vacation could mean missing the next wave. Make a deal for the acquisition of a new technology, and by the time the transaction is completed a newer, better technology has reached the marketplace. This dynamic environment shapes the ever changing face of digital media, but it is also what makes digital media exciting, engaging and potentially profitable.
The challenges are many, including gaining an understanding of the way creators may make their product available to consumers; understanding the market in which these changing delivery methods operate, and, which methods may be best suited to the product. In addition to the marketplace considerations, navigating the often changing laws and regulations devised to deal with the marketplace is a complex task.
