Entertainment and technology are rapidly converging.  Video over the Web and PDAs are becoming a viable platform. Greater broadband penetration is leading to networked gaming and increased use of file sharing.  Digital video production and CGI are now available on the desktop. And to support these and other advancements: a wide range of services designed to help companies in the space.

TAG Digital Media & Entertainment Society helps companies embrace convergence, learn about the latest trends, and find investors interested in helping them grow.  Anyone looking to create content, deliver or consume online entertainment will find membership in TAG Entertainment very helpful.  We discuss emerging technologies, new business models, bilateral investments and distribution opportunities.
