dramatic shifts in the media and entertainment industry including the way content is produced, shared and monetized.
Farid Mheir's insight:
A true digital transformation: digitization, then optimization followed by transformation. Media industry is at the fore-front because its products can be so easily digitized today: music are videos are now consumed digitally for the most part - no more CDs, DVDs, VHS, etc. They pave the way for what will happen more slowly in other industries.
Aereo, a start-up backed by Barry Diller that captures broadcast signals to be streamed online, is sowing chaos in the cable television business.
Aereo is what has been called a loophole start-up because it is structured to comply with regulations even as it disrupts the current model. The company was started by Chet Kanojia, a Boston technologist and entrepreneur, and became operational in New York last year. It is built on a relatively ancient technology, with coin-size antennas assigned to each person in the coverage area who signs up for the service. Customers can then use an Internet connection to stream any program from broadcast stations, or have them stored by Aereo for later streaming.
Farid Mheir's insight:
Not sure that this new service will transform the broadcast industry but it certainly makes you think about it. Grab over-the-air signals that are available everywhere and broadcast them - freely - over the Internet without paying dues or fees. Sounds like cheating but hey, if it is *possible* at some time someone will do it.
That is why I consider this more a digitization than a transformation of broadcast: digitize the signal to whatch it on your ipad. The first step. True transformation of broadcast comes when you do things like tivo or better netflix, when you can elect to watch what you want when you want, whether it is broadcast or recorded or movies.
