   Not today

Back in the day, people had to be in front of the TV to watch their favorite shows. That, of course, is no longer true, and the companies featured in this book played a big part in that sea change. Read how streaming video companies are not only offering new ways to see old work, but are becoming vital players in the creation of stunning new movies, TV shows, and more. This is not your parents' world of entertainment. Almost nothing has changed as much in the past decade as how we engage with creativity. From streaming video and music to amazing new cameras and animation, companies have sprung up to capture our attention using stunning new technologies. In this series, examine some of the key players in this constantly changing market, and find out what they have in store for the future. Each title in TECH 2.0: World-Changing Entertainment Companies includes color photos throughout, and back matter including an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities, and expand their viewpoints through our content rich nonfiction books. Key Icons in this series are: Words to Understand shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced color type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions, building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content-rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each title. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the material they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each title and give readers suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in history, a speech, or an instructional video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. A Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the backmatter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader's knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
