E AND TV
The entertainment business is changing. The film, television
and gaming industries have become the most important offerers
of matters that are constantly competing for the audience's
emotional attention during the Emotional Prime Time.
The presented key trend study about Film 3.0 describes the
increasing convergence in the film, television and gaming
sector. Especially video games have become the cash cow in
the entertainment sector and have outcompeted the music
sector. According to a study by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, the
sector had a turnover of 1.7 billion € in 2007. Only the film
industry has a still bigger turnover of about three billion €,
provided that the turnover of both, cinema and home
entertainment are combined.

TrendONE Key Trend February 2008: “Film 3.0”
„Film 3.0“ STANDS FOR THE CONVERGENCE IN THE
FILM, TELEVISION AND GAMING INDUSTRY
Entertainment-Conglomerate due to Games Consoles, Machinimas and MMORPGs
“All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.” In 1991, Jean-Luc Godard described a
whole industry with just one sentence. Being a cult film director and a leading
representative/one of the founding members of the Nouvelle Vague, he probably had no
idea that this sparking the development of yet another industry. Three years later, the
perhaps most famous computer game character Lara Croft was created, marking the
beginning of a new era of modern computer games.
2008, the film, television and gaming industries have become the most important offerers
of contents that are constantly competing for the audience's emotional attention during
the Emotional Prime Time. But instead of competition, the key word is convergence.
Only increasing harmonisation of the film, television and gaming sectors opens the way
to success for all of them.
Next generation game consoles such as Sony Playstation 3, Microsoft's Xbox
and Nintendo's Wii as well as their disk formats HD-DVD and Blu-ray offer all-
in-one entertainment with their fully equipped multimedia home cinema
systems with television and internet functions.
The television as well as the film business increasingly extend their content
into MMORPGs. The games represent a further merchandising expansion, in
addition to the customary stages of exploitation of movies, rental and home-
video DVD's, pay and free TV.
Film 3.0 is three-dimensional and generates new content, which are more and
more produced and consumed via the mobile Device on Demand.

BLU-RAY WITH WEB CONNECTION
One part of the fifth season of CSI: Miami is released at the
end of June in Germany as the first Blu-ray Disc, which can
access additional functions from the Internet. Thanks to this
function called BD-Live is should be possible in the future to
connect to the community, so that people who are watching
the same Blu-ray at the same time can discuss it. It will also
be possible to download additional information such as
trailers on new products. As the content can be continually
renewed, BD-Live has the ad-vantage over the fixed
content of the Blu-ray.
