Examines the issues that have been created by the shift from analog to digital technologies, the shift from narrowband/wideband systems to broadband systems, and the shift to converged networks (i.e. networks able to convey voice, data, image, and video traffic on a common platform) based upon packet switching and Internet protocol (IP) suite.
The course will begin with a brief introduction to television through each of the three lenses noted above: technology, economics/business models, and public policy. With that introductory background, each of the three, more traditional forms of video distribution will be examined; namely over-the-air (OTA) broadcast television, cable television and direct broadcast satellite (DBS) television. This will be done through the same three lenses. The course will then shift to an examination of the issues that have been created by the shift from analog to digital technologies, the shift from narrowband/wideband systems to broadband systems, and the shift to converged based upon packet switching and Internet Protocol (IP) suite. During the course, students will be given several assignments to develop and discuss in class several technology, economics/business and policy issues related to the video industry. Each student will also be expected to research, write and present a paper on a suitable interdisciplinary topic involving video entertainment systems and technology.
Students successfully completing this course should have a much greater appreciation of the rapid changes in the technology, economic, and public policy aspects of the entertainment video industry and, uniquely, the complex interactions among these aspects that are shaping the future of this critical sector of the economy. The resulting understanding should enhance employment or promotion opportunities and enhance the student’s ability to participate in the public discourse regarding the future of the electronic media.
