The aim of www.dvd-and-beyond.com is to provide information, knowledge and understanding of the DVD, Blu-ray and new video delivery technologies with focus on Europe. The material available throughout the site comes from a variety of sources – from our in-house analysts, commentators and correspondents, from material collected at conferences, exhibitions and other events, and from a continuous programme of browsing hundreds of websites. The ultimate goal is to offer a totally independent one-stop shop of information relevant to professionals active in the variety of facets of Europe's packaged and electronic media industry.
www.dvd-and-beyond.com is a commercial site, financed both by advertising and subscription. The advertising-supported sections are free to every user while a subscription is required to access the site in full. Subscription-based sections are advertising-free.
www.dvd-and-beyond.com is published by Globalcom Publications, a branch of Globalcom Limited, an independent London-based company established by Dr Jean-Luc Renaud in 1991. The company carries out research and consultancy assignments in the new media, IT and telecom fields.
Globalcom Publications launched the highly-regarded Advanced Television Markets industry newsletter in 1991. It then joined the stable of the Financial Times's newsletter portofolio. It has now been transformed into a website www.advanced-television.com. The company also launched CD-info, Europe's only independent CD-i focused newsletter. It morphed into DVD-Intelligence in 1997 to cover the new format from its inception. In 2002, the newsletter was transformed into www.dvd-intelligence.com, Europe's premier online source of news, data and analysis for professionals involved in DVD, Blu-ray and new delivery technologies. It was renamed www.dvd-and-beyond.com in 2013.
Globalcom Publications also produces the companion annual executive-level magazine DVD and Beyond – now in its 15th year.
