BAM! Presents: Digital Revolution in TV and Radio - and the Music Revenue Model of the Future

Dutch spoken

#future #mediacomposer #broadcasting

What might the business model of the future look like when 5 or 10 years from now, there is no longer any linear television or radio, with all channels broadcasting only via the internet? What do Buma/Stemra and Sena think about this? And how do producers and publishers see that vision of the future impacting on them? The aim of the panel is to map out the challenges of the future for rights holders and to examine how we can best respond to this. Nobody knows exactly what the future will bring but we can prepare ourselves for a further shift to online distribution.
