From Physical to Digital Distribution

Content of all type is moving from physical to digital distribution, so says Pietro Macchiarella, Research Analyst with Parks Associates. Macchiarella adds that content protection and the rich data that digital distribution provides are common discussion points regardless of content type (e.g. video, music, gaming).

He also provides his views of the recent E3 gaming conference. He notes the increasing interdependence between broadband and gaming, whether it is existing consoles or the new streaming game services. He implies that there may be an opportunity for third parties (e.g. service providers) with new models, such as the one offered by Gaikai (see a related release regarding their announcement to stream games to Samsung TVs).
