Description

Designed as the foundation text in multimedia, this comprehensive resource covers basic principles of each media type - text, graphics, audio, animation and video - describing their digitization and progressing onto issues that arise when media are combined.

This edition includes completely revised and re-written pedagogy which takes account of substantial instructor feedback, as well as market research and development on other Chapman titles. There is also a web/Flash emphasis and proper coverage of MPEG4 and DVD in line with current technology trends.
