Founded originally by Tom Adams in 1993, Adams Media Research (AMR) is the US media industry's key source of market data and financial analysis on the filmed entertainment, TV, video game and digital media markets. In October 2007, AMR was acquired by Screen Digest, the pre-eminent firm of industry analysts covering the global media business for over 30 years, specializing in granular sector analysis of traditional and new media content, distribution and technology strategies.
The company conducts financial and market research, and markets its databases and analyses as subscription-based Intelligence Services covering vertical media markets, both U.S. and worldwide. Most recently launched is Global Media Intelligence (GMI), a new service which provides research and analysis specifically for media-focused institutional investors. Through the Intelligence services, and through proprietary financial and strategic consulting assignments, the company provides access to what we believe to be the world's largest and most experienced team of media research professionals. The company also produces regular in-depth market reports, and two monthly publications the Hollywood Aftermarket newsletter, and Screen Digest magazine.
The combined company now has a staff of over 45 analysts worldwide, based in Monterey, Los Angeles, New York, London and Sydney, and offers unrivaled access to analyst expertise and industry data - counting among its clients every major film studio, leading broadcasters and TV networks worldwide, media technology companies, US and international telco and cable operators, new media businesses as well as major investment firms.
