"The 2007 Oxford Media Convention, organised by ippr in association with MediaGuardian and the University of Oxford will look ahead to identify the policy, governance and business challenges that face media and traditional broadcast industries now as they prepare for a post analogue age in 2012.

Consumers are only just starting to enjoy more control over content, including more choice about what to watch, where to watch it and when. These shifts are challenging traditional business and policy models built for an analogue age. Little is known about the long term impacts these changing habits, particularly apparent amongst youth, will have for policy makers and media industries."

This Oxford Media Convention will bring together senior figures from broadcasting, policy, academia and regulatory bodies, to explore the national and global implications of these shifts from analogue to digital for media industries.
