Where Intelligent Technology Meets the Real World
Contact PC AI

Overview: Multimedia is a loose collection of technologies that extend and expand the way people interact with a computer. It allows the user interface to go well beyond text and graphics -- adding high fidelity sound, still and animated graphics, and full-motion video. Initial multimedia applications included games, pictorial encyclopedias, animated science adventures, and interactive story books. Today, interactive computer-based training and corporate communications can be distributed via wide-area network or satellite broadcast for up to the minute accuracy. Interactive multimedia can reduce training costs while increasing comprehension. The person who manages the content and the structure of a multimedia production is called the author. The references in this section provide links to the latest in multimedia research.
