A digital system would be contrasted with an "analog" system, which uses a continuous range of values to represent information. The term "digital" includes, but is not limited to information input, processed, transmitted and stored via the Internet.  "Interactive" means a digital media system for inputting, processing, transmitting, or storing information or data in which users of the system are able to respond to the digital media system by inputting, transmitting, processing, or storing information or data in response to the information or data provided to them through the digital media system. "Digital media system" means communications delivered via electronic energy where the information stored, transmitted, or received is in digital form.  "Media" means communication tools used to store, transmit, distribute, and deliver information and data. The term "media" includes methods and mechanisms for information distribution through, but not limited to distributed networks, such as the Internet, and through compact disc, CD-ROM, various types of DVD, and other removable storage drives and devices.
