W elcome to the first issue of Realscreen for 2019 and our brand new design. It's hard to believe, but the last time the magazine had a design refresh was over six years ago, so it's high time that we tune up our look and the approach to our content. Much has changed since we published the May/June 2012 issue, with our cover star being unscripted icon and the recipient of the Personality of the Year award at the 2012 Realscreen Awards, Kim Kardashian. Flipping through the nominees list for that year's awards program, there is not one show that aired on anything other than network or cable television. Fast forward to the 2019 Realscreen Awards nominees featured in the middle of this issue and you will see that amongst the programming from cable and broadcast networks from around the world, there is a healthy sampling of content from Netflix, Facebook Watch, YouTube and Hulu. It's incredible, to me at least, to see how quickly SVODs, AVODs and digital extensions of cable and broadcast television have become an intrinsic part of the average viewer's content consumption. Think about it — that was a mere seven years ago. In an effort to reflect the lightspeed changes enveloping your industry, we have chosen to report on those changes in a more fluid and dare we say, organic way. We want our pages to capture the conversations of the moment, and be less restricted by defined sections covering specific subject matter issue by issue. We hope you like what we've done, and welcome your feedback. And in the spirit of welcoming the new and fresh, I look forward to welcoming you to New Orleans for the 21st Realscreen Summit at the end of January. 'Til then, go well. Claire Macdonald VP & publisher Realscreen
