entertainment sectors. For every business in the entertainment and gaming sector, it is important
to keep their customers engaged and keep up-to-date with the latest technology trends.
Over the past year, two major trends- 1) streaming and mobile video, and shift from traditional pay
TV, and 2) edge computing and eSports, have brought a wave of change in the entertainment
industry. Digital transformation in entertainment and gaming are making way for new platforms,
features and mediums that change the way people consume content. Take a look at the major trends
that will revolutionize the industry in 2019.

Cloud gaming projects from companies such as Google and GeForce are under test and are expected
to be released very soon. 2019 will be the year when we see cloud gaming making its debut. You will
no longer have to worry about the specifications of your PC or laptop or mobile, as everything will
be on cloud. All you will need is a strong, fast and reliable internet connectivity. The biggest catalyst

Netflix and Amazon are at the top of video streaming companies. Streaming companies and media
houses have started to invest in these companies for original content. With more and more users
shifting from traditional pay TV and relying on mobile and content subscription services for
entertainment, we will see more of original content from these giants.

they are a mobile gamer, PC gamer or a console gamer, they will be able to play with their friends
and the games will support all platforms.
Artificial Intelligence
Companies in media production, post-production, creation and distribution will experience huge
business benefits by implementing AI in their strategy. AI will help in personalizing user experiences
and automating pre-production activities and we will witness a generation of video games that cater
to individual users. AI-driven Media Assets Management systems can help in managing content and
media libraries efficiently.
Personalized content
The one-size-fits-all no longer works in the digital age. Hence, marketers will adopt new methods
and technologies to interact and engage with their customers to cut through the clutter. Emerging
technologies such as AI and ML will help media and marketing companies to create personalized
and relevant messaging and experiences.
