Specialized analysis on audiovisual products
Study of trends in television fiction and video games
The revolution of new technologies has had an impact on society and the economy and has generated new business models and industries. Audio-visual entertainment such as television series or video games are becoming relevant for economic growth.
At the University there is a research group expert in audiovisual products that focus their activity on the study of the future audiovisual entertainment trends, the evolution of a specific industry or the behaviour, consumption and habits of users. In short, from the collection of data and information, the group identifies new models of consumption and how they influence us.
This allows video game companies, producers or other entities to determine why their products are consumed, why they have been successful or not, or what their potential customers are. In this way, they can obtain a complete study of the industry and carry out improvement actions for their products and increase sales.
