The European Audiovisual Observatory has recently published its 2021/2022 Yearbook, a study that explores the state-of-the-art and the "Key trends" in the audiovisual industry.
The European Audiovisual Observatory is part of the Council of Europe. Since 1992, it has been collecting and analyzing data about the audiovisual industry in Europe.
Unsurprisingly, the continuing COVID-19 crisis is deeply present throughout the 64 pages of this report, a reality presented as both disrupting and confirming long-lasting trends in the audiovisual industry.
The document starts by questioning some "cliches" that may come to mind when thinking about the impacts of the pandemic on SVOD. It does so by confronting common assumptions with collected data (e.g.: "SVOD has benefited from COVID-19", "SVOD accounts for the most commissions of TV series" or "TV advertising is being captured by the Internet").
Moreover, this study allows us to explore a wide array of data covering the Production of works (from financing to gender equality), their Circulation, Audiovisual Services, Market Trends, "Key Players" and "Key Regulatory Issues".
EUROVOD, like the Observatory, believes that the data produced and gathered for this report can significantly contribute to prompting discussion about some of this industry's most prominent topics.
We invite you to read the report and enrich the discussion!
