It may happen that the very same content is distributed and consumed via different devices, screens of various sizes and qualities and in diverse usage contexts. From a media and communication studies’ perspective the question arises whether the diverse perception alignments really make a relevant difference and thereby gain specific significance. Technical attributes of distribution systems tend to become less important due to networks and devices being multifunctional, therefore offer- and usage-oriented criteria are necessary in order to classify various forms of moving image communication.
