Transcript of Technological Convergence

How has it changed the way media producers use technology? Media producers can do more with a single piece of technology; for example newer digital cameras have the ability to not only take photos and videos, but edit and upload them to social networking sites.

The quality of cameras on smartphones are also increasing, as technology gets smaller and cheaper, which is useful for media producers as their products, although produced on a phone, are more high quality, How has it affected the way audiences access technology? Audiences are now able to access technology much easier; for example, the iPhone lets audiences consume, create and buy videos and music which eliminates the need for computers to edit footage and photos

It is also saves space as iPhones can hold thousands of songs whereas before, a portable CD player and a few CDs would also need to be carried around.

It can also hold apps and games, as well as books therefore products are much easier to obtain. What is Technological Convergence?
