Price and Value of Audiovisual Products

When an audiovisual product is being traded, the costs and revenues related to it are not sufficient to express its value; on the contrary, it is necessary to analyse the dynamics of pricing. Price can be considered a synthetic indicator of the exchange value. However, price is influenced by variables related to the functioning and structure of the market itself. Therefore, while the analysis of costs and revenues represent the basis for the pricing of audiovisual products, it must also be accompanied by the study of two more variables, namely: demand and competition.

The chapter proposes a theory of pricing and value related to audiovisual products based on classic literature on pricing, suitably contextualised to the audiovisual industry.
