How production, distribution, and exhibition of media are changing due to digitization. With the coming of the internet there has been tremendous development in distribution of news, digital marketing, document sharing, online education, email marketing and printing and distributing music and videos. This books explains everything required from a layman point of view and is also a text book for students, teachers, owners of big and small media companies as well as for CEO of all corporations, to implement digitization in their institutions. The book will also help government organisations and other type of non government institutions. It is a good asset for public libraries.
The book shows a variety of understandings related to the concept of convergence, at the same time as it reflects on the analytical advantage of the concept. The contributions discuss the impact of media digitalization and to what degree the prospects of convergence are realized. The studies range from studies of institutional and regulatory change within media and cultural institutions, to analyses of communicative genres and social practices related to digital media.
The Media Convergence Handbook sheds new light on the complexity of media convergence and the related business challenges. Approaching the topic from a managerial, technological as well as end-consumer perspective, it acts as a reference book and educational resource in the field. Media convergence at business level may imply transforming business models and using multiplatform content production and distribution tools. However, it is shown that the implementation of convergence strategies can only succeed when expectations and aspirations of every actor involved are taken into account. Media consumers, content producers and managers face different challenges in the process of media convergence. Volume II of the Media Convergence Handbook tackles these challenges by discussing media business models, production, and users' experience and perspectives from a technological convergence viewpoint.
This edited volume explores different meanings of media convergence and deconvergence, and reconsiders them in critical and innovative ways. Its parts provide together a broad picture of opposing trends and tensions in media convergence, by underlining the relevance of this powerful idea and emphasizing the misconceptions that it has generated. Sergio Sparviero, Corinna Peil, Gabriele Balbi and the other authors look into practices and realities of users in convergent media environments, ambiguities in the production and distribution of content, changes to the organization of media industries, the re-configuration of media markets, and the influence of policy and regulations. Primarily addressed to scholars and students in different fields of media and communication studies, Media Convergence and Deconvergence deconstructs taken-for-granted concepts and provides alternative and fresh analyses on one of the most popular topics in contemporary media culture.

In the age of globalization, digitization, and media convergence, traditional hierarchies between media are breaking down. This book offers new approaches to understanding the politics and their underlying ideologies that are reshaping our global media landscape, including questions of audience participation and transmedia storytelling.
On our contemporary media landscape, the potential of the written word is limitless. Repurposing print journalism for the Internet and beyond, convergent journalism invigorates and transforms how we create and experience media. A vital new resource in our digital age, Understanding Media Convergence outlines and investigates the broad theoretical and conceptual issues surrounding this emergent subject. Bringing together incisive work by some of the leaders in the field--including Janet Kolodzy, Bob Papper, Kenneth Killebrew, and Charles Bierbauer--editors August E. Grant and Jeffrey S. Wilkinson have selected readings that introduce readers to this provocative subject and provide a strong framework for inquiry. Through its dynamic and diverse voices, this compelling anthology * outlines the various types of convergence and their theoretical underpinnings * presents real-world case studies that show convergent journalism in action * investigates the democracy of weblogs * provides insight into convergence by applying feminist theory, organizational culture, and management theory * concludes with a discussion of the future of convergent journalism These essays expand and underscore the practical techniques put forth in Grant and Wilkinson's textbook, Principles of Convergent Journalism, and the contributors offer a fascinating look at the controversies, constraints, and possibilities of media convergence. Essential for advanced journalism students, scholars, and professional journalists, Understanding Media Convergence sheds light on the future of the media--and the transformations that will affect us all.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, Comenius University in Bratislava (Management), language: English, abstract: The present work explores the impact of the global megatrend of digitalization on the business model of small and midsize companies, especially on retail. Fundamentally, the revolutionized search and purchasing behavior of consumers is in the center of the analysis. Businesses around the world need to adapt to the digital consumer, otherwise they will simply be consolidated. The core question this work tries to answer, is the further development of online purchase behavior, precisely the hypothesis, that only online purchase will stagnate or even slow down for certain product categories. In order to have a better understanding of the current situation among small and midsize companies on the knowledge about digitalization, an online survey with more than 100 participating leaders from retail companies has been executed. The main part for discussing the hypothesis is based on the model of asymmetric information between buyers and seller, the Principal Agent Theory by Georg Akerlof. Information asymmetry is the key to understand different aspects that impact on e-commerce. Key leavers (selected) to influence information search and purchase are big data, social isolation, cyber crime and aggressive marketing. One of the conclusions is, that The Principal Agent Theory, developed quite a long time before digitalization began, is still valid and there are different pros and cons in “the old” and the digital world, in regard to asymmetric information. Truly digitalization is unstoppable, but for certain products and industries, online purchase behavior will stagnate or decrease. The model of asymmetric information permits clear recommendations and guidance for small and midsize companies to evaluate urgency to adapt digital consumer purchase behavior. Key words: digitalization, e-commerce, digital convergence, information asymmetry, Principal Agent Theory, digital consumer, omni-channel retail

The European media landscape is changing profoundly. In this wide-ranging and timely text, members of the Euromedia Research Group examine the ways in which national and supranational policy is reacting to these changes. The contributors consider: the consequences for broadcasting systems of satellite and cable delivery; the fate of public broadcasting under deregulation; the changes currently affecting print media and newspapers; the impact of media changes for political and social cultural life; and the significance of the Internet, the first true fruit of the telematic revolution in communication. The main themes of media policy analysis today are convergence, concentration and commercialization, and abundance through digitalization. Although media policy has changed drastically in its concerns and forms, the authors here argue that the need for an effective public communication policy in our `information society' is as pressing now as it ever was.
This new volume offers an alternative view of human civilization in a globalizing age, exploring the uneven pace of development of human societies, particularly in the last two centuries, and arguing that this is leading to a global civil war.
