With the accelerating pace of technological change, the League posts a monthly digest of relevant news and information regarding changes, trends, and developments that may affect the digital media activities that orchestras use. For each monthly digest, the League’s digital media consultants, Michael Bronson and Joe Kluger, draw from a variety of websites and publications to provide excerpts or summaries of articles. (These do not necessarily represent the views of the League.) Among the topics in the new Digital Media Digest: WNET, parent company of New York’s PBS stations, has announced the launch of ALL ARTS, a streaming platform and broadcast channel that offers access to multiple forms of creative expression from New York and around the world; tracking the seismic shifts in technology and consumer behavior through 40 years of music industry sales data; and how the newly signed Music Modernization Act will affect copyright enforcement and collection of music royalties. As a service of the League, members with questions about the information in this digest or about other digital media topics—e.g., planning, strategy, and production—may contact Michael Bronson at mconbrio@mindspring.com or Joe Kluger at jkluger@artsEmedia.com.
