The term is used in contrast to media
which use only rudimentary computer
display such as text-only, or traditional
forms of printed or hand-produced
material.
Multimedia is media and content that
uses a combination of different content
forms. The term can be used as a noun
(a medium with multiple content forms)
or as an adjective describing a medium
as having multiple content forms.

Multimedia includes a combination of text,
audio, still images, animation, video, or
interactivity content forms.

Multimedia is usually recorded and played,
displayed or accessed by information
content processing devices, such as
computerized and electronic devices, but
can also be part of a live performance.

Multimedia (as an adjective) also
describes electronic media devices used
to store and experience multimedia
content.


Multimedia is distinguished from mixed
media in fine art; by including audio, for
example, it has a broader scope. The
term "rich media" is synonymous for
interactive multimedia. Hypermedia can
be considered one particular multimedia
application.

PRODUCTION OF MM:Multimedia presentations
may be viewed by person on stage, projected,
transmitted, or played locally with a media
player.
A broadcast may be a live or recorded
multimedia presentation. Broadcasts and
recordings can be either analog or digital
electronic media technology.


Multimedia games and simulations may be
used in a physical environment with special
effects, with multiple users in an online
network, or locally with an offline computer,
game system, or simulator.

The various formats of technological or
digital multimedia may be intended to
enhance the users' experience, for example
to make it easier and faster to convey
information. Or in entertainment or art, to
transcend everyday experience.

A lasershow is a live multimedia
performance.
E-COMMERCE:Enhanced levels of
interactivity are made possible by combining
multiple forms of media content. Online
multimedia is increasingly becoming object-
oriented and data-driven, enabling
applications with collaborative end-user
innovation and personalization on multiple
forms of content over time.

Examples of these range from multiple forms
of content on Web sites like photo galleries
with both images (pictures) and title (text) user-
updated, to simulations whose co-efficients,
events, illustrations, animations or videos are
modifiable, allowing the multimedia
"experience" to be altered without
reprogramming.

In addition to seeing and hearing, Haptic
technology enables virtual objects to be felt.
Emerging technology involving illusions of
taste and smell may also enhance the
multimedia experience.


MM.FILES & CONVERSIONS
Structuring information in a multimedia form
Multimedia represents the convergence of
text, pictures, video and sound into a single
form. The power of multimedia and the
Internet lies in the way in which information
is linked.
Multimedia and the Internet require a
completely new approach to writing. The
style of writing that is appropriate for the 'on-
line world' is highly optimized and designed
to be able to be quickly scanned by readers
A good site must be made with a specific
purpose in mind and a site with good
interactivity and new technology can also be
useful for attracting visitors. The site must be
attractive and innovative in its design,
function in terms of its purpose, easy to
navigate, frequently updated and fast to
download

When users view a page, they can only view
one page at a time. As a result, multimedia
users must create a mental model of
information structure
