1 MULTIMEDIA What is Multimedia? What is Information?
The word MULTIMEDIA is made up from two words, MULTI meaning more than one and MEDIA meaning a method of displaying or passing on information. So we can say that MULTIMEDIA means: more than one way of passing on information. What is Information? Information is something which TELLS us or INFORMS us of a fact or facts. Information comes in many forms : TEXT - Such as books, newspapers, magazines etc. GRAPHICS - which can come in the form of photographs, drawings, diagrams, charts and graphs. SOUND - Music, spoken words and sound effects can be recorded and played back in a multimedia document. VIDEO -Movies can be built in to a multimedia document. What do we need? To present Multimedia information the basic requirements are Hardware Computer System with the following features Fast processor Lots of memory Enough hard disk space for the program and files High quality monitor CD Rom Drive Speakers Software Multimedia program e.g. PowerPoint

2 Additional Features Hardware Software How does it all go together?
A good multimedia system would also include many or all of the following :- Hardware Input Devices Scanner Microphone Digital stills camera Video camera Output Devices High quality colour printer Large screen monitor Digital projector Backing Storage DVD Rom drive USB Flash drive Software Scanning software Photo editing software Drawing and Painting packages Clip Art and Photo files Movie, Video and Sound files How does it all go together? Just as you would do a project or a report by writing and drawing pictures on pages in your jotter, multimedia uses pages called slides with areas for text, pictures, movies and sound clips. In your jotter the text cannot be moved around, but with multimedia each item can be positioned, then moved and resized to fit in with the other items on the slide. The multimedia slides can then be displayed on screen one after the other as a Slide Show.
