EMERGING
TECHNOLOGIES IN
THE VIDEO WORLD
New Ways of Accessing Video Content
 Technological advancements over the past ten years have given
rise to a variety of new platforms for consumers to receive and
view video programming, including video-on-demand (VOD),
personal video recorders (PVRs), Internet streaming and Internet
downloading.
 These new platforms and technologies have affected the video
opportunities available to Canadians in three key ways.
 First, they significantly expanded where consumers can receive
and watch video programming. Second, all of these new
platforms, with the exception of some forms of Internet
streaming, can be characterized as on-demand services which
free viewers from the rigidity of program schedules. Third, some
new platforms provide video in a significantly different format
from traditional television.

More video programming available over more

EMERGING
TECHNOLOGIES IN
THE AUDIO WORLD
New Ways of Accessing Audio Content
 Over the past decade, numerous new ways of accessing audio
content have become available in Canada, including digital radio,
pay audio, satellite radio, Internet streaming, podcasting and
Internet downloading of music.
 As with new video platforms, these new audio platforms provide
consumers with increased choice in terms of where and how
audio services can be received, increased diversity in the type of
content that is available and greater flexibility and control over
when content is accessed and listened to.
 The new audio platforms have met with varying degrees of
acceptance by the public and while the final verdict is still out on
most of them, they have increased audience fragmentation and
are forcing audio broadcasters to be both more thoughtful and
more innovative when developing audio content and when
deciding the best means to deliver it to Canadians.
