The media and entertainment industry
was valued at $1.81 trillion in 2016,
and is expected to reach $2.14 trillion
by 2020. Activities within this industry
have grown over the last couple of years,
and now range from creating content for
movies, TV and games, to delivering that
content. This is increasingly performed
via on-demand data networks rather
than traditional over-the-air broadcasting,
watched over high resolution displays that
enhance the overall viewing experience
of the user, and even the latter is
being delivered from the same storage
repositories. Media production is also
now prevalent in areas not traditionally
associated with this activity, such as
training, museums, and education.

longings. Today, the multibillion-dollar Disney brand harnesses a new kind of
orchestration to win customers’ hearts—and it’s something that all of us as
marketers can learn from.

In the 1980s, modern versions of the automated home began to turn up in the marketplace. The concept of the “connected house” was first introduced by the American Association of Homebuilders, and formed the basis of what we now consider to be “home automation.” The connected house presented a new way to wire, connect, and control all of the devices in the modern home. However, it proved to be too expensive, cumbersome, and difficult to construct, and became limited to the luxury homebuilder market.
