Australia - Digital Media - Roundtable Analysis - July 2006


In July 2006 we conducted our first Digital Media Roundtable. We looked at the topic from an Internet economy perspective and then explored a number of business models – online music, IPTV and EPG. The report is an analysis of this event and shows that there are good commercial opportunities. The report looks at these opportunities, and at the pitfalls. Furthermore, this is a very fast-moving market and some of the initial business models are already changing.
