Purpose of Presentation
Overview of different types of different media,
and what they are used for.
Different types of Multimedia Products
Digital Camera Stills
A still camera is a type of camera used to take photographs.
Photographs can be used to present information (pictures speak a thousand words), give interactive slide shows and promote products (after they have been manipulated of course).
The first photograph was taken in 1817!
Traditional cameras capture light onto photographic film.
However digital cameras use electronics, usually a charge coupled device (CCD) to store digital images in computer memory inside the camera.
The quality of images is dependent upon the lens quality, and the photographer.
Video is the recording, reproducing, or broadcasting of moving visual images.
The first video was taken on August 24th, 1891!
Video is often used for capturing moments which are special to you, by using a video camera of your choice. It can also be used for conferencing (allowing two or more locations to communicate by simultaneous two-way video and audio transmissions), provide entertainment & leisure and learning & tutorials.
The quality of the video depends upon how still the camera is (the skill of the camera man) and the quality of the lens and components.
Please see the example of an Action scene from a film on the next slide.
A videotape is a recording of images and sounds onto magnetic tape.
First produced on November 11, 1951 , outputting black and white recordings, a colour version was later released in February, 1955.
These were once used to watch movies, or in some cases listen to music.
Tapes can also be used for Information, Entertainment, Education & Learning, Publishing Work, Tutorials and Evidence Gathering.
Video Tapes in my opinion were one of the major steps in the progression of video storage. Later moving on to disks, and then Blu-Ray disks. Improving quality on each improvement/upgrade.
Music in technical terms is vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in a way to produce harmony, and expression of emotions. In other words, sounds that are mixed to 'sound' good to us...
Music isn't something that was invented, it has been with the sounds of nature since the dawn of time. We just interpreted it!
Music is entertaining to us and inspires us. We use it to produce drama and tension (in films) to trigger emotions (in songs) and to generally just entertain us.
It could in some cases be used to communicate, such as a bird whistle to communicate with fellow soldiers in a dangerous war zone, when no other way of communication is possible. Or provide interest such as background music on virtual tours and intensity in video games.
Instruments are near enough always used to produce music, like shown in the next slide.

Video Games
A Video Game, played by electronically manipulating images which are produced by a computer program on a television screen or monitor.
Video games are mainly used for entertainment and leisure. They can also be used as computer-aided learning tools, as they are interactive multimedia products.
This can lead to you developing skills, such as training yourself for sticky situations. For example: Being in a war zone, needing to react quickly and just generally knowing what to do fast! All thanks to video games, they are fully interactive!
So What's a Multimedia Product?
Computer games, exhibitions, online shopping, movies, videos, and images are all examples of multimedia products.
A multimedia product allows you to access information in new and inspiring ways, such as music. Which brings on encouragement and other emotions. Multimedia must be suitable for the intended purpose and audience, or user requirements it is provided with.
During this presentation, I will be showing you: The different types of multimedia products, how they work, the purpose of them and the typical features they contain.

Let's get started...

Software, software is computer instructions or data, and is fully interactive!
It allows a user to complete a specific task, such as word processing, designing, coding and etc.
Software is what makes up our games, computer tools, applications and much more.
It is used to present information, develop skills and more. Software makes up a lot of digital media, as a video game is designed using 'software' and so are many other aspects of the apps and programs we use.
Websites are a location connected to the Internet that maintains one or more pages on the World Wide Web.
Websites are now apart of our every day lives, disagree? Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Amazon. All of these are websites!
Websites are used for many reasons, these are: Information, Entertainment, Education & Learning, Marketing, Publishing, Customer Service, Tutorials, Reviews, Discussions, and Skype (Video Calling via Internet).
And That Concludes The Presentation

Thank You
