Why digital-native media will (almost) always win

Why digital-native media will (almost) always win | Majors' reticence to embrace digital disruption | Scoop.it

Although much of the traditional media business has been in the doldrums for some time now, a victim of declining circulation and the free-fall of print advertising that has sucked the oxygen out of many traditional business models.And yet, many of these companies still have only taken small steps (if any) towards trying to carve out a future for themselves by adapting to the digital world. Why is that? The biggest issue is not that they can’t see the need to change, it’s that they are caught between trying to manage their existing businesses — which in most cases still produce the bulk of their revenue — and trying to create new ones. In media as in every other field, the fastest and most successful innovators will almost always be the ones that have no legacy business to worry about.

Random House waiting to see the model emerge before jumping in to Transmedia | Majors' reticence to embrace digital disruption | Scoop.it

Random House editorial director and transmedia producer Tricia Pasternak: It’s going to take the independent creators and the small companies to come up with really innovative ways of doing things that we [at Random House] can learn from in the future. Literary fiction is around the corner. It will begin with the right writer having a great idea and the vision of it. The business model for transmedia book is literally the billion-dollar question.

None of this adds to an easy environment within which to do businesss. Ahead of DBW, the conference organiser unveiled a survey that showed that publishers were less optimistic about the state of the book publishing industry in general and much less optimistic about their own company’s chances at survival and growth. James McQuivey, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester, which conducted the survey, said: "Publishers have started to do the hard work of making the digital transition and they’re finding that it is, indeed, hard work." And, as this piece in the Wall Street Journal indicated, the results are variable.

Apple Butting Heads With Content Producers Over iTV

Apple Butting Heads With Content Producers Over iTV | Majors' reticence to embrace digital disruption | Scoop.it

Problem with itv. Several sources describe difficulties on Apple’s part securing the content that would be necessary to make their device worthwhile. After all, people using a next-generation content consumption device don’t want to be told that Fox shows are available but not Universal ones. We’re supposed to be leaving all that 20th-century dross behind.

That’s not to say network & cable executives don’t recognize an opportunity. They smell money, but they’re not willing to bite until they can be sure they aren’t falling into a trap.
