With the web review, La Revue des médias and tools such as the Transmedia Observatory, Ina seeks to decipher the media and the creative industries in the digital revolution era.
The Revue des médias review covers a broad range of topics: film, television, video games, publishing, music, and even Mangas. It analyses all sectors in the creative and media industries, with a particular focus on the digital revolution and the Internet. It aims to put the economic, political, social and technological stakes involved by developments in the media into perspective through in-depth articles, interviews, special reports, computer graphics, reading notes and a selection of the best links available.
TheRevue des médias benefits from the input of several hundred specialists from all nationalities in over 30 countries. The review aims to decompartmentalise information, taking globalisation and emerging countries into account. The high-quality information is intended for a broad audience of professionals, researchers, students and other people interested in developments in the world of communication in the Internet age.
TheRevue des médias is free. It is an integral part of Ina’s vocation to be a hub for the preservation of archives and the diffusion of knowledge, at the crossroads of the memories from the past we strive to preserve and the future we try to imagine.
