Media consumers worldwide are in the midst of a monumental transition to digital media & technology at the expense of traditional media, causing significant disruptions to business models, strategies and the broader media economy. Consumers in the US and across the globe are increasingly mobile and elusive, spending more time outside their homes engaging with digital media content through wireless devices. At home, end users often multitask with various technologies, such as smartphones and television, while engaging with a range of content, like online social media and on-demand video.
Meanwhile, the emerging middle class in developing countries, such as the BRIC markets, are demanding faster access to richer content via broadband online services and upgraded telecommunications systems, fueling the growth of time and money spent on wireless devices, internet access and over-the-top video. Accelerating these social and technological shifts is the surging demand for digital media content, access and devices from post-Baby Boomer generations spending more time with digital media, hastening the shift of advertising and marketing dollars.
