DPP: media industry to reset for the future despite setbacks

The DPP annual predictions report for 2022 is out.  View the full article here.

Ranking their 2022 predictions by order of impact, DPP members’ top four: The purpose of the workplace will be redefined – a 2021 prediction the group felt had not been fulfilled; virtual production will enter the mainstream, with the use of augmented reality in live production and content capture moving beyond innovation to widespread adoption; media organisations will design for cross-functional agility, bringing together multidisciplinary teams to react to the next content or consumer trend; this will be the year of linear OTT, emerging as a solution to tackle what the DPP called the “staggering” proliferation of content.

Having been superseded by Values in 2021, Sustainability returned as a specific Mood Music theme in its own right. The experts also named Growth, Adaptability and Actionable insight in the 2022 Mood Music, along with Culture which the group felt best captured nuances around workforce, diversity and inclusivity – both internally and externally.

“There’s a huge demand to bundle into linear channels vast amounts of content in different languages based on ethnicity in different parts of the country, and different parts of the world,” added Zixi CEO Gordon Brooks. “So it’s content everywhere, much more than we’ve ever seen before. If you look at last year, it just really sped up and there is a massive amount of channels being exchanged, and now being packaged to monetize in many different ways.”
